Dinner Can Be Music To Your Ears

Posted by   + Show Post

Part of every dinner table is environment.

If you want a relaxed environment for dinner I suggest having no kids.

BUT! If, like me, you do have a family and you STILL want a fun table, you'd be surprised what you can do with a little attention to the eating setup itself.

You may have fun centerpieces or snazzy napkins.

Something fun on the table can spark memories and conversation.

I encourage you to have music to make your eating experience stand out.

Use playlists and musicians to set the stage (of course, pick and choose what's appropriate).

  •  How about coupling a style of music with the type of food instead of the content of the song with dinner ?

    Like listen to soft salsa or flaminco when its taco night or some italian opera for pasta night !?
