Making meal times special

We all know that Christmas dinner is a fancy affair but Ikea believe that we should make all family meal times special and they sent us a few little treats to help make our meal times a little bit more special.

Its amazing how the addition of a table runner and some napkins can make a meal time feel more special. They also sent us a few edible treats and bits for afternoon tea including this gorgeous cake stand. It has certainly made having sweet treats a very special occasion and the girls have enjoyed using the cake stand for pretend play as well as for meal times.
Do you fit down for meal times? Do you think you could make them more special with a few added extras?
