If These Walls Could Talk

If you are blessed to have a formal dining room, how often do you enjoy it?

How often do you and your family and friends dine in the dining room?

After we built our home I promised myself I would use this often neglected room in my home.

If my dining room walls could talk, this is what they would tell you:

“This family has spent time in here:”

  • Having a Wedding Reception/Open House for a friend
  • Date Night after the kids go to bed
  • Holiday Meals
  • Swap Party
  • Birthday Parties
  • Dinner Guests
  • Just Because

These photos were taken Christmas 2010.

I plan on posting some more photos of our family enjoying our dining room later.  However, today is an extremely busy day…

Parent Teacher Conferences, Grocery Shopping, Lunch Homecoming Parade, Daughter’s Hair Appointment, Dinner and Homecoming Football Game.  Even better, my Mom & Step Dad came into town to enjoy all the festivities.  I think we will have dinner in our formal dining room tonight before the game! 😀

Head on over to Involving Color today to see her gorgeous dining room.  She is hosting the Roomspiration Party today featuring dining rooms.  Don’t forget you can link yours up as well. 😉  Another reminder, all the rooms are available to link up until October 14th.  So it’s not too late to join in on all this fun!  Maybe it might help motivate you to pretty up one of your rooms.

Gotta Run,


  1. Doesn’t it feel great to set a pretty table and enjoy family time together!

  2. I love our dining room! It has a lot of things to say about us, too. I do hope every family is able to enjoy dining together. Such a wonderful feeling.
