Easy, Breezy Table Settings...

Pinterest is not only my new bff, but lookylookylooky where it led me now!



When I was stalking admiring Sarah's table setting over at A Beach Cottage, I was sitting at my own dining room table.




Hmmm...between the sports page, the hockey puck on the floor, Thing 2's baseball cap, Thing 4's "recycle art",  and my coffee station, I was not feeling very "easy, breezy beachy".  I was the shabby without the chic.
















I called in my "stagers", 6 year old Margaret and 8 year old Kitty.   Both under 4 ft tall, they could snag a neighbors daisies much less conspicuously than their 6ft tall mother.
We had a ball and here is what we came up with...



'At a girl...decorating in a baseball cap and tutu.
