I love a picnic, especially on summer days. But sometimes the rain or extreme heat can change my plans and I move indoors and create a simple table. It is amazing how simple items can give a table a festival and fun pop of color.
I used silver chargers with paper products and real flatware and had a star banner that served as a table runner. Windmills in a jar of sand created a centerpiece and most items were bought at a dollar store. The cost was minimal and the patriotic colors and star-shaped plates made the table festive.
