Great tip, Laura. I’m always the one running around 5 mins. before our guests are due and realize that we are totally out of S&P. Then I ruin my pretty table with the ugly old ones from the kitchen. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks Katie! I know I do the same! But we always put it off until the big day! ha! laura
