Happy 4th of July Weekend everyone! This week I'm picking the NORDEN dining table for $279.00. I saw this over at a friend's house and loved it. They're using it as a craft/game table in the basement. It is so great for kids (and adults) to have a great big table to spread out games, projects, or crafts. The NORDEN comes into 2 sizes, the smaller one for $279 which accomodates 4-6 and a larger one for $399 that accomodates 8-10! Both with removable leaves. My friend has the larger one and it's huge! Great if you have the room for it!
This table is a workhorse. It is so versatile. The crisp white finish and the clean lines will work in any room and with any decor. What I would also add is a plexiglass top to protect the tabletop from stains, scratches and spills. I'm all about getting plexiglass cut at your local hardware store. Cheap and so practical!

Before I sign out for the weekend, I had to share some of my favorite ideas from the "queen", Martha Stewart. Most of these are pretty self explanatory, no recipes or directions needed. My favorites:
- Bandana Table Runner. Pick up Bandanas at the party store and lay out on table!
- Colored Sand Votive Holders. Great one for kids. Get colored sand at craft store and pour!
- Pretzel "Sparklers". Dip pretzels in white chocolate and roll in sprinkles.
- 4th of July Sundaes. Berry sorbet with whipped cream and blueberries. Sorbet can be prescooped into cups. :)
