Dinner Party details......

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!

Those napkin holders certainly finish the whole look. Lovely. I hope your guests commented on how fab the table looked.

Well I wouldn't mind dining at your table Michelle. *Ü* Those tablemats are pretty and the card for your dad is a lovely autumnal colour. TFS. ~Glen~
