New Year's Eve

We had a small New Year's Eve get together with a few friends and had a great time.  My husband cooked the whole meal (as usual) so we definitely ate well!  I couldn't miss out on the opportunity to decorate a little for the dinner party, so here's what I put together. 

I went with a gold color scheme since we already had gold chargers from Thanksgiving.  The clocks were either from around the house or purchased from Goodwill, except for the large paper clock which I made using my Silhouette.  The clocks on the chargers and for the wine charms came from The Graphics Fairy.  I hung gold balls from my chandelier with monofilament and it was a really beautiful focal point.  The best part was that all of the ornaments were on clearance!
Happy New Year!

Easter Table

I had fun setting my table for Easter this year.  I really wanted to make these bunny napkins.  I've actually tried them before and could NOT get them to stay together.  I ended up cheating and using a paper clip.  I'd probably use white ones next time but c'est la vie.  What looks like a placemat under the plates is actually a piece cut from a paper tablecloth from Target's party supply section.  I saw the color and grabbed it, knowing I'd figure out some way to use it.  It's more the texture of paper towel than paper.

I'm loving Target's white dishes.  I wanted to buy the whole collection, but settled for six salad plates.  The scalloped edges are so cute! 

Each of the place settings has a different bunny's name. I used my scallop punch (love that thing!) and some aqua scrapbook paper, colored the edges silver and wrote the name.

I adore tulips.  They're pretty inexpensive and remind me of spring.

I tinted these mason jars a light turquoise using tutorials from here and here.  It's a subtle but fun touch.  I love how the table looks- I smile every time I walk by. :)
