It is the Friday before Thanksgiving, ya’ll!!! Can you believe it??
I am steadily working towards that day so I can eliminate the stress I sometimes encounter with preparations.
FINALLY got to work on my place cards. I really like them, even though they are not exactly what I pictured in my mind’s eye. I had such a difficult time finding the papers that I imagined I would find easily.
I still have several to make but here are the finished ones. What do ya think?
The paper with the name printed on it was a bit too bright so I toned it down by sponging on some antique gold ink. I just couldn’t find a paper that went better…kind of frustrating, but I think they will look so pretty on the table. They are pictured here on the tablecloth I will be using for our dinner.
I LOVE the background paper which isn’t really paper at all…it is more like cardboard, so I should be able to use these for a couple of years. It came scalloped and with the holes punched in it! A little pricey at $1.99 per sheet, but because they are SO sturdy, I think I will get what I paid back out of them!
Ribbon was also difficult. And believe me when I say that I have a substantial ribbon stash already!! Right size in right color…this was the ONLY one!! But I do like it!!
At this point I don’t think I am going to do a menu. I think instead I will have either a poem or a list of a few things I am thankful for in each person placed on the plates.
So how are your preparations going?
Hope you have an absolutely FAB Friday, my friends!
Be a blessing!!
