It was an end-of -the year dinner.
It was for 12 guests, and it was taking place in a private room of a restaurant.
My role...dress up the table by creating a centerpiece and favors which would add
color and a personal touch to the table at a low cost:)
This is one of my favorite requests. Thankfully, I get to do this quite often.
Here is the favor I went with;
I took this gorgeous Peony photo that I shared with you on a previous post. It was
captured by my uncle's camera.
On my printer I copied it, using the wallet size prints.
I try to think of as many ways as I can to use the beauty captured in photography.
black ink pad.
Then I took my glue pen and outlined the edges of each print, and dipped each edge into
a pie pan of extra fine glitter, outlining each small tag with sparkle.
I baked a double recipe of a favorite chocolate cake in my medium size bundt pans.
When cooled, I sprinkled with powdered sugar and put one in each clear cellophane bag.
I turned down the top and put in one staple. Then I glued the completed
tag over the staple.
I used my previously mentioned glass bowl and goblet centerpiece, and filled
it with shades of pink Peonies from my little garden.
The pinks of the tags and the pink of the centerpiece added the touch of color
that was needed for the cream colored linens on the table.
I added a few votives on the table.
Simple, inexpensive way to add a touch of "I care" to an end of the
year appreciation dinner.
As always...the best part of any dinner is the people that grace the table.
My part was secondary, but I shared it with you, in case you ever need to
dress up a table.
