We all have perceptions about people when we meet them or even when we don’t. Maybe you’ve talked or corresponded with someone online and have a fantasy of what they actually look like. Maybe you imagine where or how people live. On a field trip with a group of students last year we walked by a table display and one of them commented “This is how I imagine your table looks”. I smiled and thought about what was going on at my table that moment. It was not pretty. It created a consciousness though.
For each holiday, I’m starting a tradition with my daughter to decorate our table. We have fun placing all our items and learning about principals of design such as balance , emphasis and proportion.
We did well for St. Patricks Day….
We even had a whole set up for Easter….but the reality is that my dining room looks like this more often than not.
Assorted craft projects in progress…centerpieces or table decor pushed to the side and a bit of organized chaos. This is my reality and I’m okay with it.
