Summer Tablescape for 2

It is the beginning of a holiday weekend, but it just doesn't seem like a festive time with so many events canceled.  This weekend should be a riot of gardening in our downtown area with Garden Jubilee on Saturday and Sunday, but that is now moved to the individual garden centers.  This just isn't the …

Table for Two
