Of all the things I do in a day. One of my very favorites is to set the table. Not just for dinner but for the simple act of beautifying the space. That always begins with a fresh tablecloth. A vase of flowers will usually follow or even a few branches from outside.
As the linen glides across the table I am filled with a nostalgia.
An understanding that this simple ritual has been apart of homemaking for so many of us both past and present.
Grabbing the linens from the small cabinet passed on to me from my own grandmother who was herself quite the homemaker. It puts a smile on my face. I can feel her with me and feel the magic she passed on to me come to life. I get to add these bits of the beauty of every day into our home for my daughter as she had once done for my father. What beauty do we get to bring to a day as homemakers. It is in these small touches that a mere dwelling becomes a home.
I suppose to many, it might not matter. It’s just a table cloth after all. But the simplicity of the act is powerful. It is a familiar and caring detail that changes the environment instantly. Setting a tone for the meals here and though these little changes are everyday occurrences. It is in the everyday that life is lived and therefore where beauty should be felt most.
The relevance of the tablecloth then becomes much more than a mere piece of fabric laid across a table.
It becomes a piece of the tapestry that is woven into the creation of a home.
