It’s Week #2 of the second annual Dare to DIY blog party hosted by the NewlyWoodwards!
This week’s theme is “dare to entertain.”
Most of the time I have people over it isn’t feasible to have a sit-down meal, but I wanted to set my table anyway and pretend.
I used things from around my house. The only “new” things are the little metal pumpkin picks (90% clearance from Jo Ann Fabrics so they were only 39 cents each!) and the watercolor names in the picture frames that serve as place cards.
The centerpiece is the same one I put together earlier this fall, with the addition of the pumpkin picks (one of which I broke off of the “pick” part) and the little owl I found at a local antique shop.
I painted the place cards in the same way as I did my “give thanks” sign from last week with a little heart (the napkins are hiding part of the hearts in both photos) and streaks of yellow and red.
My napkins are super wrinkled and I couldn’t get them to fold any way I wanted so I just tied a knot around the silverware and placed the little bundle on the plates.
Now I really want to have people over for dinner!
But two people (or more if I used the leaf extension) would have to stand since I only have the two stools so far…
Or they could hang out with Taylor on the floor. He wouldn’t mind, I’m sure, especially if they liked to share.
