Glamorous + Camping = Glamping A highlight of my recent camping trip was putting together a glamping inspired table, that turned into a glamping tea party. I’m excited to share the oh so pretty pictures with you. I started with layering some pretty vintage tablecloths.  They are old ones that have a few stains, but […]

Outdoor Modern Floral Tablescape
