I took an idea I found on Pintrest and turned it into these placecards for a dinner for friends before the Easter entertaining begins in earnest. I used my silhouette machine and cut three different sizes of cardstock, white, pink and silver gray. Then I cut the names out of gray adhesive vinyl. A bow and a small carnation finished it off. This idea turned into...
this placesetting, which turned into....
These pink linen napkins were especially pretty because my Mom ironed them for me when she was visiting. She has a knack for ironing and I let her go wild. These white wooden bunny napkin rings are so old. Not to call my children old, but I had them when they were small. My mis-matched silverplate seemed like the right choice for flatware.
This photo doesn't do justice to these beautiful etched glasses. I found the stems at Erika Reade in Atlanta and I did a post on them. They are very similar to William Yeoward's Fern pattern. Then, the other day I wa sback and I found these tumblers in the same pattern.
You can see it a little better here.
M friend Ann, who is also our daughter's MIL gave me this darling salt and pepper set for Christmas. A bunny and a chick! I've been waiting all these months to use it.
The flowers had to be something I could do fast, so grocery store carnations were plopped into a mercury glass vase and I was done.
Then, on each side of the flowers, I placed a foil wrapped bunny. Doesn't he make you smile? After I took these pics, I went back and added some crystal candlesticks with pink candles to the table.
Aside from the wrinkles in the tablecloth, it's pretty cute, right?
After the dinner, as I was putting things away, I ran across these placecard holders which would have been cute on the table and a lot less work.
But......he was truly the star of the table. Everyone took their placecards home. Hope they knew that flower will die!
