As the blessing of summer finally arrives in Minnesota Bret and my schedules and eating habits get more spontaneous and defintely more casual. It’s time for grill food and casual gatherings with friends and neighbors. I set up the kitchen table this year to reflect my earthy cottage/flea market style. I like every nook and cranny in our home to say; “welcome…this is a place to relax and laugh.” My decorating style also always reflects our love for our animals. This table center setting seemed to tie all those things together for us. I have attached a tutorial in pdf form for items on the table that I made and details on where I purchased some of the items.
