This time of year unexpected guests have a way of popping up.
“Hey honey ‘so-and-so’ is in town visiting family for the Holidays, he/ she is going to stop by tomorrow night can you throw something together?”
Whaa, what? I know, I’m with you, we don’t “throw together”. We carefully orchestrate with an aim to delight each of our guests and offer a memorable dinning experience. Just me?
Regardless of which end of the hostess spectrum you land, I’ve created a tablescape and meal that will only look like it is the work of a crazy Martha Stewart type such as myself.
Here are photos of the completed project check back each Monday this month for the how-tos.
Who has time to run to the farmer’s market for fresh flowers for a last minute dinner? I don’t know, but I do know you need not concern yourselves with such things when you add this handy skill to your “tulle” box. <smiley face emoji>
Placemat or craft staple that I know you have in abundance?
Reduce, reuse, recycle — these napkin holders were made with something that you were going to throw away.
This easy pasta dish may look unassuming but it features a seasonal favorite that makes it anything but ordinary.
If you are curious to see how I turned a paper towel roll, tissue paper, and scrapbook paper into this vibrant tablescape check back for the next post in this series, Setting the Stage: Unexpected Dinner Guest (Decor). Chat with you soon!
