Project Day: My Lunch

This Sunday I am hosting a lunch. Here are all the things I am making and gathering together to create a special tablescape. It is nice to think ahead and make an effort to impress your guests. For me, it is always the little things that make it special.
  • Pretty Tissue Paper Pom Poms I made by hand. So so simple. Click here for instructions.
  • Pastel coloured paper napkins from my store.
  • Take home cake boxes from Etsy.
  • Rainbow striped fabric for a tablecloth. No seams, just rip the fabric off!
  • Place mats made from jam jar covers.
  • Vintage jars waiting for rose buds. One for each place setting.
Now all I need is a nice day!
Next time you host a lunch what can you do to make it a little more special?
I will take some photo's of the day and post them next week. Have a great weekend.
