It’s hard to believe that in just a couple weeks another school year begins, and the lazy days of summer are gone. For some of you, school may have already started, so there’s no time like the present to get started on a home organization project.

Serve small bites. Serve a variety of sweet and savory small bites to give guests a variety of options that are simple to eat. Their small size makes them easy to transport, so only take out what you need, and replenish as you need more!
Make picnic-inspired invitations. Get crafty and weave paper together to create an invitation with the look of a woven picnic basket. If you’re in a rush, simply buy tartan or checkered scrapbook paper for a similar look. Read More→
