#1wordwednesday / teaching {etiquette} – Valentine’s Day edition

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

What better day to teach our kids etiquette than Valentine’s Day?

I loveeee setting up a fancy table for dinner on special occasions at home.

First, the kids came home to our breakfast table covered in a fancy tablecloth (clearance from Target a few years ago) and one place setting at the table.

The goal was to teach them how to properly set a table with multiple pieces of silverware (who knew you actually use BOTH the big and the little spoons!!).

Before we got started setting the rest of the table, we gave them all their Valentine surprises.

The girls got a box of chocolates and a chocolate kiss, along with flowers from their daddy.

Joy and Chloe were treated to manicures with me earlier in the afternoon and Brian brought them flowers (Ohhhhh, be still my heart!! I married a GREAT one, y’all!!).

And since Brock can’t have chocolate, he got an entire box of fruit snacks, and he’s ALL SMILES 🙂

Alrighty, now back to setting the table.

It turned out beautifully.

Now, in case you think we have it all together…think again.

Yep! Sure did get Bojangles and put it on our fancy plates!!! We know how to do fancy dinners, for sure!!

More than anything, I want our kiddos to remember the love we share around this table.

From our table to yours, Happy Valentine’s Day, friends (with Bojangles boxes in the background, lol)!

Today’s Haigler Hospitality {Habit}: Set a fancy table. 

Nothing is less important than which fork you use. Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor. – Emily Post

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
