The June issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine is chock-full of cool ideas to make summer entertaining fun and easy!

One of my favorites is this unique place setting from the article "All Set for Summer" on Page. 134 of the magazine. Martha Stewart Living editors offer simple and stunning details to make your summer soiree stylish. Here, floral images are rubber-stamped in a circle at each place setting and butterflies are created using craft punches and then taped to wire, hovering over the real flowers.

Did you know? Martha Stewart has her own craft product line available at Michaels craft stores. I adore her new craft punches called "Punch Around the Page," which allows do-it-yourselfers to punch a continuous decorative border for greeting cards, stationery or scrapbook pages.
