June 1st and the rain has finally left us! Which is a good thing, because I had decided if Montana didn’t get it’s act together soon I was packing up the family and moving somewhere tropical.
Anywho, back in the day I used to be a slave to the Food Network, and I occasionally watched Sandra Lee’s Semi Homemade. Bless that lady. Her food always seemed okay, but those table settings were horrific. And as if the actual table settings weren’t enough, she would usually wear a coordinating outfit.
In hopes of never making her mistakes, I swore off table settings all together. They just seemed too fancy for my taste.
Along with the purple lilacs, I did two mason jars of dandelions, a tall vase full of apples and a cup of basil I am currently trying to root. I used some green cloth napkins tied together with natural kitchen twine on our regular white plates.
I love how simple and refreshing the whole thing feels. Makes me want to host a ladies lunch.
