Formal Dining Rooms - Is Yours A Shrine?
I was just watching a TV show of The Marriage Ref with Jerry Seinfeld and one of the arguments was over the use of the formal dining room table.
In the clip: The wife only wanted it used on Thanksgiving and the husband felt it could be used for poker games and casual use.
This formal dining room table was completely set up with the china, silver goblets and centerpiece...to gather dust, skin cells, dog dander and whatever else might float by and land there all 364 days of the year. At least till time to fill the plates with food and pour ice tea in the goblets.
So I'm wondering. How are you using your formal dining room? In Lexington KY, I've seen them both ways. dressed and undressed.
A few come to mind that even had yellowed plastic covering the chair seats and backs!
I'm using my dining room table for every day. I entertain there, have meetings, it's my staging area before I carry everything out the door to meet with clients, etc.
I like to use all my formal things for every day.
Like making each day special.
We might not be here tomorrow, so I want to be able to use the good stuff today.
This example is of my table right before Christmas dinner was served. It usually does not have the plates and mats. Only a center bowl.
No...the chandelier doesn't usually stay decorated all year either. I recover the chair seats when I change decor in the room too.
I suppose it looks good in a staged home for sale, but everything needs to stay clean ...minus the dust.
What do you say? Is the formal dining room in your home a shrine?
This is up for a vote...
....and your best argument over why your formal dining room
is staying pristine until Thanksgiving.
