Dining Room Design on a Dime

By Erin Ferucci

All great dining rooms create a mood. In these challenging economic times why not bring the focus back to entertaining at home, by throwing a dinner party. Is there anything more fun than having friends for dinner? Every one needs support and encouragement right now. This is a great time to get together casually with friends and enjoy good food. You don't need to recreate your dining room or spend a fortune. You can easily create a dining room that sets a mood without having to break the budget.
Start with accepting your dining table and chairs as a given. You may not love them but let’s face it, dining room tables are expensive and you can’t just run out and buy a new one every time you feel like changing the design of your dining room, especially in this economy. Adding color to your simple dining table is easy...with colored glasses, plants, food, and flowers...

Of course, a beautiful setting always is inspiring too....

Stay tuned to the next blog when we discuss simple floral arrangements that will make your table look like a million bucks for just a few dollars.

just linked to you from SITS ... beautiful! i look forward to perusing your site more in the days to come ... also, this post is timely for me! i was talking to a friend recently about how dinner parties are the epitome of being a "grown up" ... i really liked the pics with the colour theme being maintained from flowers to napkins, etc - the punch of that look is strong! new plans for the next event ...
