To begin, we carried our child-size kids table outside to the back lawn (erected out "EZ Up" canopy to provide some shade). We set the table using some extra fabric I had in my stash, & plastic plates and tea cups from the dollar store. Below, you can see my one of husband's contributions, ribbon on the tea cups (That little crossover weave was his idea!).
What's that? Is that pressure you're feeling? Well, stop right now! This post is meant to inspire, not pressure you. Throw those expectations out the window and do it your way- I promise you, your kids don't care about what you do or how you do it, just that you do it with them!
