Challenger - Love-The-Day
"Eat Your Greens" 

A little background, this topic is actually REALLY near and dear to my heart. My husband and I are HUGE advocates of healthy, clean eating and think it is SO, SO important to teach this next generation to eat "more greens." I can't even tell you how much this table represents me and how I feel about entertaining and eating in general. So in an effort to propagate healthy eating, my "Go Green" tablescape is called "Eat Your Greens."

This is a fabulous mix of fresh and rustic. I love that the party's color comes from the food.
