Good evening, everyone. Hope you are all well. I am doing battle with a wicked sore throat and cough since last Friday, it has put a major crimp in my preparations.
I was unable to do a new table for you tonight, so I will show some from the past. I know, boo, but sickness has no respect for tablescaping plans!
To start, a little craft to use as place cards.
I cut the adorable face from a roll of ribbon, fashioned a snowperson's body and made a slit in a styrofoam ball. Something cute that costs very little!
Perfect with these cute plates from CVS, a chain of drug stores. I bought them after Cmas one year, for about .50 or less a plate.
This table gets a lot of interest from pinners. There is a red checked tree shaped place mat from WS Outlet and all the plates are from there too. Very simple and fun!
A more formal table done with a wicker sleigh centerpiece I made with fresh greens and flowers. The china is Eternal Christmas by Lenox.
Same china, but this for New Years. Fresh greens, flowers and pinecones adorned with some glittery ribbon and stars.
My tip for Yvonne's TTT, fill your kitchen island with trays of goodies, and let people help themselves... Plenty of small bites choices like the Rugelach shown here.
Another tip is if you entertain a lot, invest in a buffet server like the triple one you see here. I got mine from HSN, Command Performance. Not only is it pretty, but it is SO useful.You can cook , and serve in it, and it has 3 separate settings. I have given a few as gifts, and they are always a hit!
I have previously posted the recipe for Mike's Rugelach, type it in the search bar if you are interested.
Your turn, same rules, no word id, dish related post and a link back to this party.
Visit as many as you can, I am way behind, but next week should be better!
Thanks for visiting, see you Sunday!
