So, I'm curious about something and I don't want to turn this into a witch hunt (no Halloween pun intended) where we tear anyone down, because, even though I don't decorate like that, I enjoy seeing my friend's vignettes just as much as the next blogger.
I mean who doesn't like looking at pretty?
(In other words, please be nice in your comments.)
But, I've just gotta ask...
When you put all that stuff on your table...
Where do you eat?
Do you take it off, right after you take a photograph?
Or do you take it off when you eat and then put it back on?
I can't imagine talking all of that stuff off every time I eat, but that's just me.
Or do you leave it on and eat around it?
Maybe you never sit at your dining room table, so it doesn't matter?
In the picture below, I can just see that pumpkin on the end going flying if someone sat there that used a lot of hand motion when they talked...
Not to mention the candle... yikes!
Also, when you put something really tall on a table, do you leave it on there?
Is it because you don't want to look at the people across from you?
If that's the case, I've been there, so I get it ;)
I was always taught that you should have an arrangement low enough and shallow enough for people to comfortably chat and also eat, like this...
or to have one tall enough that it was above eyesight, like this...
Has this gone out of fashion?
Or is this just for cuteness?
Fess up, kids :)
Now don't get me wrong!
All of these pictures are pretty and I'm not trying to offend anyone, but I'm seriously curious.
Of course, this is just how my mind works when I look at Pinterest.
Which is what I do when I'm tired of painting.
Which by the way, is finally done.
At least in those two rooms I was working on ;)
Pictures coming soon.
Anyway, vignettes on dining tables are the least of my questions about things I see on Pinterest, but let's stick with this for now.
