I often dream about my perfect dining table. I think about what would it look like, who would be sat around it and what would I serve.
My ideal dining room set might look rather like this one.
I love the bold coloured chairs and also the minimalist sleekness of the design. I am really attracted to the fun yet contemporary look of this. I could see it working for both the children’s meal times and mealtimes with friends too. I thinks it’s fabulous (and it would clean very easily) Plus it extends to seat up to 10 so absolutely perfect for hosting a child’s party or a large family dinner. I’d love an extendable table like this, it is so practical and adaptable (a must for a mum!) and it is gorgeous!
In my reality, my most frequent dinner guests are usually my lovely little family all gabbling away at once and to be honest they are probably my favourite dinner guests of all. However, they do make a whole lot of mess, eat super fast and never like to linger and chat for long. Plus no matter what I do they just absolutely will not eat my roast vegetable lasagne. which is my favourite dish of all to make, serve and eat.
Ho hum. Kids hey!

So, despite loving my children best of all, for my perfect dinner I would not invite them! Instead I would invite 3 of my oldest, best friends and we would talk about days gone by, relive happy memories and talk about old boyfriends – always a good subject for a giggle .
We would absolutely have my vegetable lasagne with piping hot roasties and asparagus . We would drink great wine and good coffee and linger for hours. (Oh and we would most definitely have a mountain of profiteroles and strawberries too.)
Doesn’t that sound lovely…all round my perfect dining table too.
