Just a little preview of my Thanksgiving Table that I will be posting about later today!
I made these simple napkin rings out of burlap ribbon, cut the ribbon about 6 inches and hot glued the back… so easy!
Then I glued a wooden flower on the top. I really love them and how they offer texture. I sometimes like to add something that feels like a sculpture to my tables and I got that from these wooden flowers!
I’m sure everyone is getting their plans ready for Thanksgiving… In case you wanted do add these to your table there is enough time to make these.
(I think these are adorable for weddings as well!)
(sorry the pics were snapped by my phone)
Burlap Ribbon HERE
Wooden Flowers: I bought them last year on Amazon.com, it looks like they are sold out. They are used for potpourri, so look for that… You could use anything… pine cones or even a little fern twig tied with a velvet knot.
Let me know what you come up with!
A while ago I blogged about My little trick: DIY Fabric Napkins
And I found a really good site for Unique napkin folding just in case you would like to give it a try for Thanksgiving! HERE
-cut stems at a slant every other day to keep them fresh.
-cut off all leaves on the stems that are submerged in the water.
-a florist once told me the leaves can take away the water from the flower itself.
-a little bit of sprite mixed in with the water will keep the flowers extra fresh for longer.
(I do the Sprite thing for my weddings and it really does work)
UPDATE: I said a few days ago that I was going in for sinus surgery, well we had to postpone for 6 weeks due to a “surprise” cold that all of a sudden came on! So I really am here, sickly but I’m here!
Sorry, I feel a little all over the place with this post… but that’s okay right, because I feel a little all over the place in life… Trying to get better, planning the holiday and son’s birthday on Sunday and fitting in a little DIY in my day, basically sums up my life!
