While trying to keep up the socializing, prep for baby and manage being a tired 8+ month preggers lady, something’s gotta give. And for this dinner, it was doing anything super special for the table, and using whatever happened to be at the front of the cabinet (admittedly I’ve got a pretty well stocked cabinet). That meant lavender, gray, and an overall cool and calm look, with simple peonies floating in ice cream bowls. With the soothing color palette, the food became the pop of color with one of my favorite summer watermelon and feta salads – check out the delish! recipe below.
