kinda OT_table setting 'funnies'
I sometimes lurk on other forums since I'm on here all hours of the night. I saw these two posts regarding setting a table for 'no reason', and got a laugh out of them. Figured you would too.
"I never understood setting the table when you aren't going to use it for a meal soon. I have a friend who is an interior designer, fully degreed and credentialed, who keeps her dining room table set all of the time. I want to ask her why she does it, but I value her friendship so I chalk it up to eccentricity and say nothing."
My first thought was this gal obviously doesn't understand how fun it can be. My second thought was that before I found this Forum, I probably would have said the exact same thing as she did! LOL. This place is definitely a learning experience!
"the table setting thing perplexes me. Won't your dishes get dusty and dirty? I recall watching a Nate Berkus where he brought this up and it was pretty funny. He said to the camera - "Please people, do not set your table and leave it that way. They do that in magazine shoots, it's not something you should do in your home". He said it was a pet peeve of his :-)"
I think Nate needs to get over himself. LOL
