Have you ever noticed how Pinterest and beautiful blogs and magazines can make you feel like if you're not Martha Stewart, you have no business throwing a dinner party?
Although I love getting inspiration from around the internet, sometimes I feel like:
We should be drinking out of striped straws from mason jars.
I should have place cards set out on the table.
The centerpiece should be dazzling.
Everything should be perfectly color coordinated.
But I could only live up to that if I had an unlimited budget and gobs of time on my hands! And then I had a reality check: my friends are coming to see US, not the table decor. Who am I trying to impress here?
Needless to say, we had a lovely evening!
What about you? Do you ever feel this kind of pressure?
