How To Make Tile Flooring A Fabulous Focal Point In Your Home

Look down, not up! Flooring might be the most overused and underappreciated element in your kitchen, but that doesn’t mean it can’t stand out. Your tile flooring can most definitely be a focal point in your modern kitchen design with these tips. It’s time to take your floors from functional to fabulous.

Old is charming but sometimes new is just better. 

If your floors are simply outdated and overrun, replacing them may be all you really need. Encourage guests to look down (and then all around your kitchen) by installing new porcelain tile. You’d be surprised how new flooring can make your all wood cabinetry and other furnishings shine in a whole new way. That smooth, shimmering surface can make the entire room glow like never before.

Mix complementary styles to create an interesting design.

Flooring often falls short, but that’s not because it doesn’t have potential. We simply don’t realize all of the possibilities we have to make it a fabulous focal point. One truly unique way to optimize floors is to mix more than one style. By creating a visual dance from one pattern to another, all eyes will be captivated by your interesting floors.

When mixing tiles, there are some helpful rules to follow. First, think about scale. Mix small and large patterns together, rather than both small or both large styles. Next, stick to the same color. It’s much more complementary to mix two different patterns in the same color than two different colors in the same pattern. Lastly, choose either glossy or matte. While it’s possible to mix a glossy and matte tile, it is much more difficult than not.

Pick a pattern that is outside of the box but completely in style.

Consider a tile in a compelling pattern that you might have previously overlooked. Today’s materials have practically been engineered to perfection, which opens up so many doors for flooring. It used to be that only the most durable of materials could stand strong against kitchen traffic, but now you have the opportunity to indulge in your creative side with herringbone, hexagon, and basketweave patterns.

It’s often good to ask yourself, “Would I love this for a backsplash in a modern kitchen design?” It’s not uncommon to have preconceptions about what is flooring and what’s not. By allowing your mind to imagine this tile elsewhere, you are able to find a pattern you love — even if you’re not completely comfortable using it for flooring just yet.



Design an accent area highlighting your favorite part of the room.

You may have an accent wall in your TV room but have you ever explored the idea of accent flooring? When laying out your new tile design, consider creating an accent area to highlight one element of the room. Maybe it’s the beautiful all wood cabinetry of your kitchen island or your dining room table. You can make this element, as well as your floor, a focal point by creating a decorative trim or design using a different tile than the rest of the room.

3 Cool And Contemporary Color Combos For The Kitchen

When looking for a color palette to compliment your modern kitchen design, it can be difficult to know where to start. For inspiration, here are a few of our favorite cool and contemporary color combinations for the kitchen.

Light and Bright Combos

Once upon a time, pink and green was the “It” color combo. According to Southern Living, this colorful kitchen trend is making a comeback. Add a splash of crisp white to the mix, and you get cool and contemporary kitchens with a splash of pure whimsy.

To get the look, pair Mint Green Glass Subway Tile with Midtown White Shaker all wood cabinetry. Then, choose a soft pink shade for the walls. For a list of gorgeous pink paint colors, according to top designers, click here for a recent article from Elle Decor.

Bright shades of blue are also fun and always in fashion. According to Sherwin Williams, blue is the most popular color family by far. For a modern color palette, start with an energetic blue wall color or backsplash tile. Then, add cool contrast with white all wood cabinetry, such as our Regency White collection.

Neutral and Monochromatic Combos

Monochromatic color schemes are right on point. While light, neutral shades of gray, beige and white are classic, they can also be chic. The key is to layer tones for visual interest. Start with a subtle shade, and go one or two steps up the color swatch for an accent wall.

Neutral hues are soothing and can be a cool choice for contemporary kitchens, especially with decorating in an industrial or Modern Farmhouse style. Willow Lane Cabinetry offers a number of light finishes, including white, off-white and gray options in all wood cabinetry.

Dark and Dramatic Combos

Deep jewel tones are right on trend for home interiors, and can be a stunning choice for contemporary kitchens. From cool Emerald and Turquoise to warm Amethyst and Ruby Red, these dramatic, versatile shades pair nicely with both light and dark cabinet finishes.

Blueprint, Behr’s Color of the Year, also has a distinctly contemporary flair. This is especially true when paired with the dark cabinet finishes that optimize modern kitchen design, like our Midtown Dark Shaker all wood cabinetry. Cool Carolina Timber Wood Look Tile softens the look and is perfect for wet areas like the kitchen. Then, add natural stone countertops and stainless steel appliances to complete your cool and contemporary custom kitchen design.

5 Ways To Add Beautiful Style To A Boring White Ceiling

It’s quite the misconception that you can’t add style to basic architecture. In fact, even a boring white ceiling can come alive with the right addition. Here are five of our favorite ways to add beautiful style to your white ceiling.

  1. A Splash Of Color

Color on the ceiling is very unexpected, which is why painting a ceiling with a splash of color is so powerful. From accenting your all wood cabinetry to enhancing the room’s character, a colorful ceiling can really transform a room.

If this is the route you decide to take, there are a few ways to go about it. If you want to be subtle, simply select a shade lighter or darker than what currently exists on your walls. This will create a slight contrast that is noticeable but not overwhelming.

Alternatively, if you have a modern kitchen design or your design style is more daring, you can opt for an accent color that plays off a specific element in the room. Taking this plunge is definitely riskier, but if it’s done right, it’s a statement that will make a lasting impression.


  1. Rustic Faux Wood Beams

Wood beams are a beautiful addition to rustic, country or industrial style homes. They make things feel a little undone but in a thought-out way. This ceiling style is great for a making a room comfortable and cozy, plus it adds some instant charm.

Many homeowners get lucky and purchase a house that has exposed beams — but you can also install your own. You can add this style with reclaimed wood for a warm, country vibe or take things up a notch with a grained wood like mahogany for a more elegant, traditional take.


  1. Shiplap Paneling

If you love the classic look of shiplap, you’ll be thrilled for this design opportunity. Shiplap makes for a beautiful ceiling and is another excellent choice for rustic, country or industrial style homes.

Shiplap looks great white but you can also paint it a color to add more character. Grey, black and navy are popular color choices, but the options are endless. Painted wood paneling can also be combined with beams for a really interesting look. Beams can be painted the same color as paneling or a contrasting color.


  1. Glitzy Wallpaper

Wallpaper isn’t only reserved for walls. You can take this trendy decorative feature to new heights by applying wallpaper over your basic white ceiling. This is a great addition to contemporary kitchens or homes with a more eclectic style. The addition of a vibrant print or pattern adds an artistic element that really ties in well with a modern kitchen design. Metallic patterns, such as distressed gold-leaf wallpaper, are another dynamic selection.

Of course, you don’t have to go for the wow factor. A wallpapered ceiling can work well in a variety of themes, not just contemporary kitchens, and textured wallpaper can have an equally interesting effect.


  1. Coffered Ceilings

Traditionally a more formal option, coffered ceilings can help tie together a large room or high ceilings. The pattern adds depth, which creates an interesting contrast. Homeowners that want the most elegant way to add style to their ceiling should consider this surface pattern.

Coffers can be pretty shallow or deep and come in different colors, giving the homeowner lots of design flexibility. You can add as much drama as you like or create subtle architectural interest.

How To Design a Charming and Cozy Eat-In Kitchen

While we often talk about open concept kitchens, many families end up eating in the kitchen despite having a dining room. Dream kitchens need functionality as much as flair, so if meal time often happens in your kitchen, your kitchen should be able to accommodate your preference. Here are some tips to help you design a charming and cozy kitchen perfect for eating in.

Build a breakfast bar. 

Whether you have an all wood cabinetry kitchen island that could easily double as a breakfast bar or you need to set up a portable island, this extra seating is great for families that like to grab a quick bite before work and school. All you need is some place settings and comfy stools.

Building a breakfast bar also makes your kitchen better prepared for entertaining. When you have guests over, this seating will provide a more comfortable and expansive area for guests to sip and snack. In smaller homes, this can be a huge asset — especially if you host dinners or parties during the holidays.

Set up a two-person or four-person table in your kitchen. 

If your kitchen is larger, you can optimize some corner space into a cozy dining nook. A two or four-person table can offer a secondary seating area when you don’t want to eat in the dining room. Depending on the layout of your kitchen, you could also install a built-in bench so that this secondary dining table is also an inviting spot to sit, socialize or read. A dining nook can offer much more than a standard kitchen table.

Alternatively, for those who don’t have an empty corner to convert, you can extend your kitchen island to serve as a table. This is often a good choice in tight spaces, as it creates additional seating while maintaining the existing flow and layout of the kitchen.

Consider high top seating. 

Your all wood cabinetry home bar is a beautiful addition to your home, but it’s not the only place you can have high top seating. While a staple in most bars, this seating option also works great in smaller spaces.

Consider adding bar stool seating to your eat-in kitchen if you want to save space and add a little variety to the room. Because of its vertical design, high top seating can sometimes be the perfect solution in tiny eat-in kitchens.


Double down on storage to create more room for seating in your kitchen. 

If you feel like your room can’t accommodate an eating space, you may have to get creative with storage solutions. The best dream kitchens have optimized every inch, so that they are clutter free and have plenty of room to live comfortably. If you do install a bench in your cozy corner, add some built in storage. This allows you to utilize the area underneath the bench to tuck away items. A portable island is another great way to add an eating space while also increasing your storage options.

Keeping storage in mind when designing your eat-in kitchen can help you make the most of your space by keeping clutter under control.

3 Bathroom Tile Trends We Love For Fall

Fall is a time of change — from the leaves on your backyard trees to the throw pillows on your TV room sofa. And while it is an undoubtedly beautiful season, it can also be rather messy. That is why tile is the ultimate flooring choice for fall. Muddy boots, dirty paw prints, and wet leaves are no problem with durable, easy to clean tile.

When it comes to bathrooms, tile is a must. No other material is as impervious to water damage, making tile the obvious choice for not just flooring but also walls! Whether you prefer elegant Carrara marble, rustic, wood look ceramic, or stylish, frost-resistant porcelain, Willow Lane Cabinetry offers a large selection of gorgeous flooring and backsplash tile.

Here are just a few of the bathroom tile trends we love for fall.


Crackle Craze

According to one of our favorite home magazines, Southern Living, a crackle finish is the hot tile trend to watch. These hand-glazed, glossy tiles offer a uniquely textural look, like our Artisan Taupe 4” x 12” Subway Tile. An elegant twist on classic white subway tile, this versatile selection features a warm, neutral, cocoa-brown hue that is perfect for fall.


Wood-Look Wonder

Look closely. It’s hard to tell wood look tile from the real deal on first glance, but there is one major difference. Wood-look tile offers the warmth and rustic charm or hardwood floors with the water-resistance of tile. This allows homeowners to have the best of both worlds in wet areas like the bathroom. For a prime example, check out our Carolina Timber 6” x 36” Beige Wood Look Tile.


Stunning Shapes

Our Water Jet Glass Tile features a graceful arabesque shape and a glossy finish. Select from Ornamental Bright White, Wood Ash, Antique White, Whisper White, or Dove Gray with the aforementioned crackle finish. Or opt for Grecian White made from opulent, polished natural stone. The stunning arabesque shape of these tiles lends an intriguing, Old-World look to both traditional and transitional spaces, and is one of our favorite bathroom tile trends for fall.


As we mentioned earlier, fall is a time of change. If your bathrooms could use a little TLC or have long been on your home renovations checklist, now is the time to make that change with the help of Willow Lane Cabinetry. From bathroom cabinetry and bathroom sinks, to flooring and backsplash tile, we have you covered this fall and beyond.

What Is a Galley Kitchen & How Do You Plan for One?

Defined by their corridor-like design, the galley kitchens of today are hot, hot, hot in home design trends. In no way do they resemble the narrow ship kitchens for which they were named. Today’s galley kitchens run from tiny to massive and can be both economical and luxurious. One thing is for sure: homeowners (and designers alike) love them.

Galley kitchens are narrow and consist of two parallel walls that include all the kitchen necessities: sink, refrigerator, stove, pantry, counter space and cabinets – usually lots of cabinets… we’re talking floor to ceiling storage. Let’s take a deeper dive into the pros and cons of a galley kitchen and tips for including one in your remodel project.

Pros and Cons of a Galley Kitchen

Pros of a Galley Kitchen:

  • As there is only the corridor in which you work, galley kitchens are a wonder in workspace efficiency.
  • Originally, galley kitchens were, by nature, small. So, for those on a tight budget, galley kitchens can be cost-effective. For those thinking about an extravagant galley kitchen… this “pro” may not apply.
  • Small households work well with galley kitchens as there won’t be too many cooks in the kitchen.
  • Galley kitchens can have ample storage with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. The trick is to make the most of your storage space. We’ll get to that in a moment.

Cons of a Galley Kitchen:

  • Because of that floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, galley kitchens tend to not have much in natural light and therefore, are a little on the darker side.
  • Smaller galley kitchens can feel tight and isolating in a not-so-cozy way.
  • Depending on the size of your galley kitchen, counter space can be limited, not allowing for ample workspace.
  • Because of their corridor-like appearance, galley kitchens are not ideal for entertaining larger groups.

Tips for Including a Galley Kitchen in Your Remodel

Whether you’re thinking about upgrading your galley kitchen or you want to design one from scratch, we’ve got the tips and tricks you’ll need before you start your galley kitchen project.

Keep it Simple: Galley kitchens are meant to be simple. Adding breakfast bars, kitchen islands, huge farmhouse sinks and other bulky items will take away from not only the entire concept of a galley kitchen but space. Let it be known now – you do not want to waste space in a true galley kitchen.

Include Ample Space-Saving Storage: One of the best—and most stylish—features in a galley kitchen is the ability to create floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and storage. To get the most out of this space, things to consider include baskets, labeled bins, glass-front cabinet doors, lazy Susans and roll-out appliance shelves.

Lighten Up: If the galley kitchen you’re designing will be on the smaller size, consider lighter, more neutral tones as this will give the feel of a much larger room throughout the space. Our suggestion: lighten up all over, from the flooring, counters and backsplash, to the cabinets, paint and appliances.

Let’s Talk Lighting: Light fixture placement is essential in a galley kitchen – especially if you want to give the illusion of more space. A well-lit kitchen can truly make the space feel larger. Adding character with lanterns, hanging cluster globe pendants, chandeliers and recessed lighting can give personality to your galley kitchen as well.

When to Incorporate an Island: Breaking from the true galley kitchen for a modified one, a fun way to include an island is to use it as an entire galley wall, opening to another room in your home. Doing this means you can create a breakfast bar, homework space, second sink, entertaining space… the options are endless.

Final Thoughts on Designing a Galley Kitchen

Typical galley kitchens range from 100-150 square feet and are approximately seven to eight feet in length. If this fits the bill with your plans, the above tips and advice will really help you make the most of your space.

If, however, you’re opting for a larger galley kitchen, consider these a guide to making your galley kitchen the best it can be… but most importantly, just have fun and enjoy your new, trendy kitchen.

Tasty Ideas To Take Your Late Summer Grilling To The Next Level

Summer is almost over and that means grilling season will be nearing its end as well — but not quite yet. If your family is getting tired of the same old hamburgers and hotdogs each and every week, it’s time to step up your grill game. Here are a few tasty ideas to take your late summer grilling to the next level.


Grilled Spatchcocked Greek Chicken

Sure, BBQ chicken legs are good, but why stop there when you can cook the whole bird? This recipe from Food Network teaches you how to spatchcock a chicken — a technique where the backbone is removed and flattened out. Taking this extra step nearly guarantees your chicken will come out tender and juicy, since it allows for even cooking. And with fresh lemon juice and seasonal herbs like dill and oregano, you can bet it will also taste delicious — no BBQ sauce required. Click here for the Grilled Spatchcocked Greek Chicken recipe from Food Network.

Mexican Grilled Corn

There are still a few more weeks to enjoy freshly picked corn on the cob. Instead of boiling your corn, husk it and cook it on a hot charcoal or gas grill instead. Zesty and delicious, Mexican Grilled Corn brings on the heat with chile and cayenne powder from your kitchen pantry cabinet or door mounted spice rack, plus lime juice, mayonnaise, and crumbled cotija cheese. If you can’t find cotija at your local grocery store, Parmesan cheese makes a nice substitute. Click here for an easy Mexican Grilled Corn recipe and step-by-step video from Bon Appétit.


Grilled Herb Potatoes

Everyone knows potatoes taste great, whether baked or wrapped in foil on the grill. With that said, this recipe elevates a plain spud to spectacular heights with the help of lemon juice and herb-infused, extra virgin olive oil. Better than just butter, these golden, garlicky potatoes are bursting with the flavors of freshly chopped parsley, chives, rosemary and oregano. Click here for the Grilled Herb Potato recipe from Epicurious.

Grilled Peaches And Plums With Mascarpone

Finish your meal with caramelized summer fruit on the grill. Grilling allows you to bring out the natural sweetness of fresh, seasonal fruit like watermelon, pineapple, peaches and plums. This scrumptious dessert goes a step beyond, with a sprinkling of sugar, a dollop of melted butter, and creamy Mascarpone cheese. For the Grilled Peaches and Plums with Mascarpone recipe from Food and Wine, click here.

Late summer is the perfect time for grilling in your outdoor kitchen, so raid your kitchen pantry cabinet, fire up the grill on your back patio, and let’s get cooking!

How To Design The Perfect Patio for Year-Round Entertaining

What if you could enjoy the best of your backyard all year long? Summer is the season to celebrate the outdoors, but there’s no reason why you can’t use your patio long after Labor Day. Here are the things you need to design a patio that can be savored throughout all of the seasons.

Ensure your outdoor space can withstand all types of weather.  

The materials you use when designing your patio are the deciding factor in whether your outdoor space can stand strong against the elements. From flooring to a backsplash for your bar cabinets, make sure you are selecting frost resistant tile that is manufactured for outdoor applications. Having a full outdoor kitchen with bar cabinets and a kitchen island will definitely help you utilize your outdoor space more — just make sure it’s designed to withstand all types of weather.

Warm things up when the weather drops.  


Being able to heat things up when temperatures drop allows you to enjoy your outdoor space well after summer ends. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit is the favorable option, because it gives your guests a place to gather as well as keep warm. Who is ready to toast some S’mores by the fire? Supplement with outdoor heaters to help you keep your entire patio warm on crisp days and chilly nights.

Pick weather-resistant furniture that can last through any season. 

Make sure that your patio furniture is as weatherproof as it is stylish. Teak and resin wicker are both great picks for outdoor furniture. If your current patio furniture isn’t weather-resistant, you may be able to weatherproof it yourself by applying marine varnish. Also make it a habit of bringing in outdoor pillows and cushions during harsh weather conditions such as heavy rain or snow.

Make your patio feel like home to visiting guests.

No perfect patio is complete without the ultimate unifying experience of having your friends and family over. Use some of the extra storage in your kitchen island or bar cabinets to keep blankets and extra throw pillows. When nights on your patio are always warm and cozy, guests will feel right at home.

Keep the party going well after the sun sets.  


Soon the long days of summer will come to an end and it will begin to get darker much earlier. By fully equipping your backyard and patio with lighting, you can enjoy your outdoor space even after the sun sets. Not sure where to start? Place path markers wherever guests will need to navigate from your home to your patio. Then illuminate the main area, such as your outdoor table and chairs, with spotlights. For a little extra glow and ambiance, hang some string lights around your patio.

Keep the pool open all year long.

Water activities aren’t only reserved for summer. When your backyard boasts a hot tub, you will want to go for a soak even when fall has fully arrived. Thankfully, you don’t need a lot of space to add this water attraction to your home. Even houses with small backyards can accommodate a hot tub. Are you ready to take a dip?

Glass-Front Kitchen Cabinet Doors – Pros, Cons and Are They Right for You?

Glass-front kitchen cabinet doors are appealing to homeowners on many levels as they can make it easier to find things, elevate what’s inside to home décor status, make a smaller room look larger… you get the idea.

And wouldn’t you know it—there are a few different types of glass cabinet doors to choose from, offering a number of ways to utilize them in your space. Let’s take a look at the different types of glass cabinet doors, their pros and cons, and when they may be the perfect fit for your home.

Types of Glass-Front Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Glass-front kitchen cabinet doors just happen to come in many styles. A few of the most popular include:

  • Clear, Full-View Glass Cabinet Doors:

    Balancing function with looks, clear cabinet doors mean one thing – goods on display. This, in itself, can be a great thing; however, it can also be limiting, depending on needs and style.

  • Fluted/Reeded Glass Cabinet Doors:

    Slightly blurred, the contents behind fluted-glass doors will be somewhat obscure, yet still seen.

  • Frosted Glass Cabinet Doors:

    While glass, these cabinet doors are more opaque and cloudy, almost completely blocking the view of what’s inside the cabinets.

  • Seeded Glass-Front Cabinet Doors:

    Different size “bubbles” give a wavy appearance and look like vintage, hand-blown glass.

  • Leaded-Glass Cabinet Doors:

    Used to achieve a dramatic look, leaded-glass is much more decorative and often comes as a theme or specific style. These are popular in built-ins and hutches.

Pros and Cons of Glass-Front Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Adding elements of elegance and luxury to any space, glass-front kitchen cabinet doors have really become a popular trend with many homeowners. There are both pros and cons to this style of cabinet door, and depending on your lifestyle, you’ll either love them or decide to go a different direction. Let’s delve.

Pros of Glass Kitchen Cabinet Doors:

  • Give the illusion of more space, allowing for an open and airy feel (similar to the appeal of open shelves) while still providing a protective door
  • A showcase for statement pieces
  • Busy chefs will always know where to find everything (unless doors are frosted glass)
  • They’re gorgeous, modern and knock-it-out-of-the-park chic

Cons of Glass Kitchen Cabinet Doors:

  • Get out the window cleaner – these cabinet doors need to be cleaned often
  • Possible viewable clutter – depending on space and contents
  • Susceptible to cracks and breakage (not always kid-friendly)
  • If dishes don’t match and styles run the gamut, they may not be a fit

Are Glass-Front Kitchen Cabinet Doors for You?

Glass-front kitchen cabinets make a statement and bring a stunning balance to a room full of wood, tile and metal. So, unless you have mix and match dishware, you’re prone to slamming doors and tap, tap, tapping on glass, we say go for it!

Things to consider in your decision:

Only choose glass-front doors for upper cabinets; if your kitchen needs a little more light, but you’re not sure how to do this, installing lights inside your cabinets and adding glass-front doors can do the trick.

If you’re still indecisive, a fun, trendy idea is to blend – have a mix of glass-front cabinet doors and traditional cabinet doors in your kitchen. This way, you can hide away those items you don’t want to be seen—but still have them within easy reach—and showcase your statement pieces.

Entertaining Essentials For A Summer Home Bar

Summer is a prime season for entertaining at home. Whether you’re hosting a backyard BBQ or an evening cocktail party on the patio, these are the entertaining essentials for a summer home bar.


Summer Wines

Dream kitchens often include bar cabinets. But if you don’t have the space for a designated home bar, a kitchen island with a simple wine storage cabinet will do. Whether you have a large island in your kitchen or a portable cart, stock up on a lovely variety of crisp whites and smooth reds. Popular summer wines include Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Sangria, Pinot Grigio, and Merlot. Click here for 11 summer wines under $20 from Wine Enthusiast.


Signature Summer Cocktails

In addition to wine (and ice cold beer), you’ll want to make a signature summer cocktail for your get together with friends and neighbors. Summer favorites include margaritas, mojitos, and daiquiris. For frozen mixed drinks, use fresh seasonal fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, peaches, berries, cherries, lemons, and limes. You’ll also need to pull out that blender stored inside your bar cabinets. Other signature cocktails can be served ice cold and on the rocks, like this Limoncello Collins or Raspberry Caipirinha. Garnishing with fresh herbs from the garden, such as mint or basil, adds an additional summery touch.


Entertaining Essentials

Here are the items you’ll want to include in your bar cabinets this summer.


  • Glassware: Including shatterproof, BPA-free plastic for casual outdoor entertaining, like this set from Pottery Barn.


  • Juicer / Reamer: Perfect for squeezing the juice out of lemons and limes by hand like a pro.


  • Zester: Made for zesting said lemons and limes as a garnish.


  • Cocktail Shaker / Stirrers: A must-have for any home bar when mixing drinks served on the rocks.


  • Strainer: For smoother drinks that contain fruit and muddled herbs


  • Corkscrew: For opening bottles of summer wine.

  • Muddler: A necessity for making mojitos with fresh mint.


  • Pitchers / Beverage Dispensers: For holding and serving large batches of your signature summer cocktail.


  • Cocktail Napkins: In a fun and festive summer print.


  • Straws: Opt for environmentally friendly paper.


Why not make the most of the remaining few weeks of this summer season? Whether you prefer a casual cookout in the backyard on a sunny day or an evening cocktail party by the light of the moon, this handy entertaining guide will help you be the quintessential summer host.
