Last week we had planned to go out with friends, but I omitted to consult my DD's social calendar (yeh!) and she was going out so we had to stay in!!! I did try for a babysitter, but in the end it just was easier to cook and have friends over. So with very little time, I shopped for dinner, and bought some flowers, and when I had the cooking done, I set the table, going for a casual look, with some cottage styling.
The flowers matched my new table mats (from Meadows & Byrne) and new vase with wicker stand from Vobe Interiors in Carrick on Shannon (love love love this shop! - go visit Vanessa and say Hi! Michelle sent you!!!) The table needed something else, so I ran to the craft room, grabbed the first patterned paper that looked right, some ink, hot glue gun and a Tim Holtz die, and made up these cute napkin holder decorations. They took like 15 mins from start to finish and I just love them. They are now in the drawer for use another day!
Not the Ritz, but the table looked lovely when it was all done!
Here is a little quick card I made for my FIL's Birthday! Not good at making boy cards but this one turned out OK!
Right I have loads more to share! So will add more during the week!
