How to Create a Fab Christmas Table Setting on a Budget

Christmas Table Setting on a Budget Graphic

This post is sponsored by Super A-Mart. I love LOVE putting together a table setting. Aside from the cooking, it's the creative side of entertaining that I really enjoy. Because of this, I've collected my fair share or thereabouts *ahem* of napery and serving ware. I confess that I am also currently in the midst of a self imposed ban on any further serviette purchases. However, I know … [Read more...]

I've been in the garden this week. I've even swept the deck. Not to mention line dried at least 48 loads of washing. The tide is slowly turning and the sunny, warm days are happening more often here in the south. Although it still tends to be 26 one day, 16 the next.

There is so much to love about this time of year, don't you think? As the days lengthen and become warmer, spending time outside becomes more and more pleasant. I reckon it's good for the soul not to mention all that fab Vitamin D. Before long, the BBQ will be fired up, night after night, and the fewer dishes to wash up season will officially be underway.
