Dare to DIY Week Two
Dare to . . . entertain!
Show us your table. This could be for Thanksgiving, everyday, the holidays or something else entirely. Bring out your table settings, display it in a new way or make something completely new (a table runner, centerpiece, etc.). I promise that having a set table will make you smile. And, everyone can use a smile.
If you remember how last year went, you will know that tables are not my thing. I don't own a lot of sets of fancy dishes, cloth napkins, chargers, or anything of the sort. Plus, I strive to make my home kid-friendly and practical at all times, so those things don't always fit into the equation.
Having said that, my table was pretty simple:
I used the turkey napkin rings from last week (of which I only made two of, so use your imaginations):
And also made these pumpkin spice cupcakes I have been DYING to try for years. I made them in these darling little paper wrappers that I knew were going to go on my table from the moment that I saw them:
And, of course, the practicality part! All the extra paper napkins, salt, pepper, kids silverware, and yes - even the hair fixing supplies, gotta keep hair out of the food! - are all hidden away in the Harvest basket.
So that's my table, simple and practical as always! Thanks Kim for giving me an excuse to clean and polish it. :)
Until next time . . .
