I keep a Pinterest board of good ideas for all the random tidbits I find along the way but occasionally I find something extra simple + clever that is worth a share. Spotted in the July/August issue of Martha Stewart was this little tip about adding a few window cleats + elastic cord to your picnic table to keep your tablecloth from blowing around.
Um, why didn't I think of that? This photo is using a paper roll instead of a tablecloth but it could be easily tweaked to accommodate. Added bonus: napkins can be tucked under the elastic cord to keep those from becoming airborne as well. Genius!
Got a good idea to share? Don't be shy - drop me a line.
