I like to encourage others to see hospitality in a new way, each and every day. We all get busy, or certain seasons in life stop us from being able to reach out. That is real living, the real life things that get in the way.

But when you can, I say run free with your hospitality!

Set the table

This time, I set the table with a simple bouquet of pink roses. Honestly, you can’t get any simpler than this!

I love how each table setting weaves together different people, textures and colors, flavors and newness.

We should never get in a rut, just inviting the same people over and over (my humble opinion).

It’s easy to barely get by, and check things off our list.

But to be intentional with our time and talents and what we’ve been given, I think most of us have silly excuses that we use all the time.

So …

Be inspired today with a simple pink table setting.

I wrote this a few years back on my blog:
For me and my blog, this is why I share so much about relationships, connection, hospitality. It all weaves together into a beautiful tapestry of love. Throw open your doors (remember it doesn’t have to always be in a home), and bring your hospitality in or to others. I don’t mean squeezing through the gate, and doing what it takes to get by. I mean throwing the gate WIDE open, which means there is a lot of room to do what you are called to do.

Ask your guests to bring an appetizer!

It’s always fun to be surprised to see what they will bring!

  1. If all I had were cheese and crackers, I’d be a happy camper…lol! I love when we have friends over and they willingly offer to bring some goodies to snack on.
