Well, I don’t know about the weather where you are, but this is my first full week of sunshine since last fall, and I’m positively giddy! With Memorial Day behind us (the “official” start of summer 😉 ) and this warm weather, I’m in full-on summer mode!
Are you ready for summer entertaining? To me, this time of year always seems simpler and just a little more relaxed than any other season. There is just something about lingering after a dinner party on the patio on a summer evening, don’t you think?
When I posted my Memorial Day table last month I had mentioned that I would like to try something a little different for my Independence Day tablescape. Though I did end up changing it up a little more than I planned (I didn’t want to bore everyone)! If you love tablescapes as much as I do and are looking for more inspiration, check out my free e-book featuring twelve of my favorites!
Every year I bring out the red, white, and blue decorations right before Memorial Day, and I usually keep them out through July 4th. I treat the whole month as a “patriotic” season! Also, since we usually have people over for one or the other of these holidays, I wanted to put together a patriotic tablescape that could work for either one. I love doing tablescapes and I know a lot of you do, too, so I compiled a new free e-book with twelve of my favorites (including sources and lots of tips and tricks!)
