Enjoy a great family dinner in a few hopeful steps with IKEA

Every parent knows that gathering the family to a relaxed dinner with eye contact and conversation is easier said than done.

Here is an honest attempt to help you make it happen.

1. Make dinner important

Try to make dinner stand out from the rest of the day. Involve the family in the preparations. Cook together when you can. Motivate your children by giving them responsibility for laying the table or deciding the menu. (If they want to bring some friends, an extendable INGATORP will do the trick.)

INGATORP Extendable table is QAR 995

2. Give your table setting some TLC

Eating at a set table makes all the difference. Why use your weekend dinnerware only on weekends? Add placemats, patterned napkins, double plates, a nice salad bowl. Small changes to make dinner a bit more formal, but also more festive.

Add a decorative, round IKEA LÄTTAD seagrass placemat for only QAR 19 under a plate and bowl.

3. Savour the moment

How was everybody’s day? Any weekend plans? When (and if) you get the family talking, try to stretch the moment. With a board game or music quiz – like here with a LUSTIG wheel and an ENEBY bluetooth speaker, you may even lose track of time altogether.

LUSTIGT Wheel of fortune game is QAR 99,  ENEBY Bluetooth speaker is QAR 375

In past, I often have the same question: How to grow your own vegetable garden at home? I have my doubts and failures in experiments until getting to https://hydrogardengeek.com/best-mushroom-grow-bags/ and realize that adding some mushrooms make my garden more interesting. Mushrooms are fat-free and full of antioxidants and vitamins. So it does not only add it is an

investment in my heath.
