Weekly Table Setting: Summer On Our Minds

Today it's precipitating again, but at least it's not snow! While the weather is a touch warmer, it's still far from the sunny days of summer, and we've definitely all got warm beaches, blue lakes, and boating adventures on the mind. That's what inspired Alex this week, and helped her to create this beautiful table setting. A few words on how it all came together...

This week I was inspired to create something summery in hopes of bringing myself out of the winter doldrums. I pictured myself near Lake Sebago, soaking in the sunshine and breathing in the fresh air. Maybe I would be choosing between appetizers presented on the Heath Plaza collection or reaching for Sabre's bottle opener with the intent to enjoy an ice cold beer.
