Last Saturday at our church, we had a ladies' luncheon during the missions conference. A number of the gals at church volunteered to host a table (myself included). We were responsible for decorating our table and making sure everyone at our table was taken care of.
This is my table. You know me, as in my scrapbooking- when in doubt, add more stuff. ;)
I had such a blast getting to sit and talk to other women without the kids crawling all over me... like, I had whole conversations without being interrupted and everything!
(In case anyone's interested, the napkins that doubled as placemats are from the party supply section at Target. They have a matching cloth line of linens that match - but not the napkins for some reason. I'm in love with these colors and the shabby chic pattern on it!
I also made the little napkin ring pom poms out of tissue paper, using Martha's tutorial. I changed the dimensions to about 5"x8" when cutting the tissue paper for them, and I used 8 sheets of tissue paper. I also discovered that if you cut 2 small notches in the center of the accordian fold, where you are going to tie the string or wrap your wire, it helps them to pull apart for the "petals" easier... hopefully that makes sense! They were really easy and fast once I got the hang of it... I am thinking that I might make some of the really big ones to hang up in the girls' room.)
