Everyone is always looking for cute yet simple and inexpensive ideas to enhance their table at special occasions. Here are some attractive ways to create that festive look. Whether you use china or plastic, your guests will surely be delighted with your charming setup.
Original, funky and fun these place settings are sure to be a great conversation piece.
Small brown paper bags (I used the 1 lb sacks available at craft stores and cut off 2” from the top of the bag)
Dinner napkins (folded in half)
Place the napkin, cutlery and straw in the bag and tie a piece of twine around the bag.
Irresistible at any age, fun lollipops always have that special appeal.
For the napkins:
Start at one corner of the napkin and roll up.
Fold the napkin in half.
Tie a ribbon around the napkin and stick a lollipop in.
For the centerpiece:
Place large lollipops into flower arrangements.
Wrap an inexpensive mask around a folded napkin and stick silverware in.
