WoW! Raquel! Thanks for sharing your fabulous table setting with us! So classy and unique! I’m going to save this idea for a Father’s Day table.

 Dear Hostesses! Please comment below if you loved the effort that Raquel put into her husband’s birthday table setting! Marlene

“Anyone who knows my husband knows what a great dresser he is. So, In honor of his birthday,  I “dressed” the table in his favorite style! I used a navy pinstriped fabric for the tablecloth and bought a variety of pocket squares online and folded them with the napkins. A friend lent me napkin rings that were actually small leather belts. Each setting had a mini martini glass with hummus and a Moroccan cigar. The flowers were simple red roses and his own ties were tied into bows beside them. The table was set so true to his own personal style that we joked all weekend that it looked like he was lying on the table! Raquel Franco”

Dear Sari, Thank you SO much for sending in your Thanksgiving table setting! I know that somehow November faded into January but I just want to say that your table setting is so pretty and your table decor ideas can be used until the buds start blooming for Springtime!

Thanks again! Marlene M.

“I usually don’t do this my kids made me lol.

I wanted a earthy look so I worked around my beige dishes, burlap fabric as my cloth which cost $10.00, I overlaid a runner from Blossom Blu. My chargers were from Amazing Savings & cloth napkins were from Home Goods which were $12.00 for a dozen. My big splurge were the napkin rings from Kitchen Caboodles which I couldn’t resist… My best were the acorns from Wegman’s which have a cinnamon scent.” Sari Tawil

Pretty in Pink – Birthday Dinner for Friends

4 Comments 25 December 2010

“For my best friends birthday, I went all out in MY favorite color with my pink placemats, drinking glasses and my rhinestone glitzy bow napkin rings wrapped in not one- but two napkins. I folded both a white and a pink napkin together to get that perfect shape to fit beautifully into my bows. For her special day , I served spaggheti squash baked ziti, a big hearty salad (every girls favorite) , artichoke bottoms, bruchetta, parmesan truffle french fries and last noodles with pesto. A deliciouse meal brings a smile to everyone :)

Shavuos Felt Card With Embroidery
Mommy’s Creation: My first
attempt at embroidery on paper, lots of fun!

I sat down the other day and did an impromptu art project together
with two of my kids! And of course I’m happy to share the results with
you, since this is a great project for all ages and abilities. I cut
out lots of petal shaped felt pieces and provided the kids with folded
cards, glue, a box of buttons and some yarn.

Add your kid’s picture and you have a great Mother’s Day Card!

Here’s what they came up
with:

Shavuos Cards Kids versions

Aren’t these just the cutest? My almost 8 yr old daughter did the
one on the left, and my almost 5 yr old son did the one on the right. I
just love seeing their personalities reflected in their art!

You’ll Need:

  • felt
  • buttons
  • yarn
  • thick needle with eye big enough for yarn
  • card stock

Shavuos Cards In Process

How To:

Pretty self explanatory, just some notes about the embroidery:

  1. When embroidering on paper, unlike fabric there is no room for
    making mistakes since a hole is a hole!
  2. So plan ahead and make your holes before you start embroidering.
    Also, you really can’t see what you’re doing from the back, so there’s
    no way to know where to come up through the paper with your needle
    unless you’ve either made holes or marked them with
    indentations.
  3. I used both yarn (green) and embroidery floss (orange) and I love
    the contrast between the two weights.
  4. With embroidered cards you’ll want to work on a flat piece of card
    stock (or two pieces, like mine, namely a white square glued onto a
    pink square) and then glue your artwork to the card after you’ve
    completed the embroidery. Because the embroidered card had some
    dimension it can’t lie flat, (which is actually a plus!) so I used hot
    glue to affix it to the card.

Enjoy, and keep in touch!
