Summer is here, and with it comes the opportunity to make simple moments special! All it takes is a little imagination and a few extra minutes!

When my best friend told me she was moving several hours away, I was pretty heart broken. Shelli is my fabric-hoarding, adventure loving, ride or die BFF. It was impossible to imagine what life would be like with out our weekly dinner dates and random shopping adventures. Before she loaded up the truck, and headed out of town, we had one last girls morning.
We didn’t have a ton of time at our disposal, so I skipped cooking fancy breakfast foods, and grabbed our favorite cereals at Walmart. With a mad dash around the house to “shop my shelves”, a $5 bouquet of yellow daisies and an easy, but tasty breakfast, I was ready for our last in person girl-talk time!
To help make simple moments special, just “shop” your house! Look for simple, but pretty things… A vase with flowers (real or fake!). Fabric, doilies or napkins to add a little soft texture. Serving tray – doubles as a way to carry everything out, and add some charm to the table. The “pretty dishes” are another way to add some fancy fun and color.
Taking it all outside, or setting up in an unusual location can also add some fun! Don’t have a patio table? Make it a picnic! If the weather doesn’t cooperate, set up a picnic on the living room floor 🙂
I grabbed a farmhouse style milk bottle vase set, vintage style doilies, a metal tray, vintage pyrex bowls and a couple of my favorite mugs. In just a few minutes I’d set up a simple, pretty and cozy table on the back patio.
Add in our favorite Cherrios (Original for me and Apple Cinnamon for Shelli), milk, coffee, sugar and creamer and we were all set for a perfect morning!
Of course I had to send Shelli off with a few things, including some Cherrios of her own, so once she got all moved, she’d at least have some cereal to munch on!
