Since we were going to be eating outside, I wanted to try the "floating table" that Kathleen at Kathleen Ellis showed us. If you didn't see Kathleen's directions for a floating table, you need to go look. Kathleen's table is stunning, and she's having a "floating table" event on June 5th. I'm going to be honest about it, this is my third try at this! I did one for a graduation dinner we hosted for our niece and nephew last weekend, and changed it to use it for Memorial Day last Monday. Kathleen made it look so easy, but none of mine have turned out as pretty as Kathleen's. I do think you need the icicle lights, and I didn't have any of those. (That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!) Of course, when I started setting up my floating table, all of my family members wanted to know why I was making such a big deal out of a family cookout. You can just imagine the laughter when I told them it was for my blog! They were whispering about my blogging addiction all night! (Oh the shame I suffer for the sake of blogging!)
Don't forget to go to Little Red House and see Mary's lovely Country Living Mosaic and get links to the other mosaics in Blogville and go to Rose Colored Glasses to attend the lovely party on Rhondi's porch and to get a list of all of the porch party participants today. Thank you so much Mary and Rhondi for letting Blogville join these fun events.
