This week has been a mixture of outdoor summer fun and indoor (staying cool in the East-coast humidity) play. We kicked off the new Creative Table project on Instagram a couple weeks ago, and we have close to 100 inspiring photos of creative projects in action! Take a look at last week’s Creative Table images, and add your own by filling out this form or tagging us on Instagram.
