¬† I have a secret to confess.
I am not the best hostess in the world.
If you come to my home, I am more likely to want to sit down and talk with you, pour you another beverage than worry about cleaning the table.
I am more likely to cook enough food for an army because I will be so worried about not having enough.¬† Or, like when my girlfriends came in last week, I will be completely ill-prepared and be so thankful that you showed up with your own food.
Some people are a natural at it.
They can perfectly judge how much food to make, it is always delicious and when you turn around, everything is put away and clean.
But I can promise you this.
I will be so glad you are here.
I will know that you are the type of person who doesn‚Äôt worry about the mess in the sink and will probably help me clean it anyway.
I can promise you that I will try to make you feel incredibly welcome.¬† I will make sure that you are not worried if something spills because it is easy to wipe up.
I will most likely have candles burning, low lamps turned on and music playing because I think the atmosphere around us helps us relax and have fun.
I hope the day you come is one of my ‚Äúinspired days‚Äù when I make a favorite recipe like Maple Bacon Cheese Cups.¬† But, it is just as likely we will order delivery pizza so all we have to do is throw out the box!
And today is a lucky day, because I asked some of my favorite blog friends to invite you to their table as well.
We also have a Pinterest board with more summer tablescape inspiration. And, you can follow each of these ladies on Pinterest.
As always, thanks so much for reading!
