A New Kitchen Table Setting Using My Nectar Points All Ready For Summer...


Advertorial.

Phew, Easter Holidays out of the way, children back to school, what next? Spring cleaning of course!! I am planning lots of fun makeovers and decorating jobs all around the house. Not too sure where to start, so may as well be where the food and drinks are located!!


Kitchen it is then. Start here and then work my way around the house. At least that's the plan!

The kitchen table has been used by my Son as a makeshift desk. University course work all over, glass after glass of energy drink. Enough was enough and with the youngest two at school, he would have to now use their desks. My kitchen needs me!!!

Finally, I have it back only to find it still has that Christmas look to it. With my gold and bronze Christmas plates and what looks like cranberry sauce on my placemats!!

Something fresh for Spring /Summer is needed. A nicely set table is the hallmark of a lovely home, as my Gran used to say...
