Celebrate Summer With My First Giveaway

"UPDATE: This was a giveaway I hosted this past summer, a tablescape I put together from one lucky winner. I made the placemats and runner and accessorized them with brightly colored dishes and flatware. FUN!! It seems everyone is in a Fall State Of Mind, but I myself would enjoy a bit more warm weather! With that in mind, I'm linking this post up to the Tablescape Linky Party at Between Naps On The Porch!"


I am very excited to host my first giveaway, with essentials that will get you ready to host a summer picnic or casual dinner party. The prize includes a set of 6 reversible placemats and a coordinating table runner. The fabrics, by wonderful designer Amy Butler, has been provided by my new favorite fabric store, Aunt Tam's. To help you set the table I have selected a colorful collection of 6 plates, bowls, glasses, eating utensils, and a tray and pitcher...perfect for your favorite beverage or a pretty bouquet.











Are you ready to host a summer party? Enter to win this summer primer, valued at over $150, by leaving a comment on this post by the end of day, June 28th.

Would you like to increase your odds of winning? For 1 additional entry become an Isabella & Max Rooms follower. And if you would like to beat the odds, for 3 additional entries blog about my give away and let me know you've done this by providing the link in your comment on this post!


The winner will be selected by Random.org and be announced in my blog post on June 29th.



Good luck and here's to the arrival of summer!! Janell
