January Tabelscape Redo

So yesterday’s fail brought on a second try at a crafty table.  I learned to keep the crafts doable for a non-crafter like me.

I kept my favorite thing from the last table, the place cards and I built from there.


For the napkin rings, I took the remaining of the paper towel roll and put tissue on it (same method as place cards)…


I then took craft paper and put it across the entire table and drew on the outline of four “placemats” with a black marker.  Then I added paper doilies as the chargers for the table.  I’ve been really into doilies lately.  Who says that?  Also, what has become of me?  My 25 year old self would fly to New York for the weekend for a party and found clever beer koozies amazing.  My 35 years old self bails out on a party in my own neighborhood and finds doilies thrilling.

I digress…

I then added hydrangeas to my peony arrangement from yesterday’s tablescape to beef things up and I thought they had a great match to the doilies.  And there you have it, my tablescape, redo…






I usually only do tablescapes when we have people over.  Tuesday night dinners are plopped straight onto the table with a side of kitchen tea towels as napkins.


Actual dinner was still put in melamine bowls and it was still just pasta but fun to have a little bit of a fancy tablescape for a regular old night.  The girls didn’t notice, but I did.

Now, onto scheming for my February tablescape.
