Summer Fun

 Summer has arrived in all its 90 degree glory.  It's time to think about barbecues for friends and family get togethers.

Shopping at N. S. Merill & Company (, I found some wonderful table accessories for outdoor use.

Calaisio makes the best ever woven holders for pyrex containers.  They make a fabulous  rectangular baker and a salad bowl for family dining. The casseroles and chip and dip trays are perfect for entertaining. 

My Kim Seybert wash and use napkins look terrific with these containers.

Everyone has their own favorite recipe for burgers that can be served on the Calaisio round serving tray with a glass top for ease of cleaning. We have a favorite recipe for spicing our burgers
