Well, it’s almost 2012, so I thought I’d share some entertaining ideas perfect for your party.
The above image is from my previous book Simply Green Parties where I took an old terra cotta pot that had broken, sterilized it in boiling water, let it dry and used the shards to stamp out the names of the different cheeses. You can also do this with river rocks, paint chips, etc… but I tell you one of those alphabet stamp kits from Michaels sure comes in handy here.
Cute cute cute idea: a glass trifle dish is something you may or may not have stashed away in the attic or basement. If not, you can sure find them for next to nothing at thrift stores. Use glass candle holders inside and regular candles. It illuminates from the inside and just looks so warm and inviting. A great centerpiece idea for your table.
And if you need coasters to keep your tables looking their best, why not upcycle some old belts? Just snip them into strips of leather and use a leather cutter to punch holes along the edge. Thread with hemp twin and you’ve got really handsome looking coasters perfect for a scotch on the rocks.
Happy New Year all!
