The contest just started, and there are already some beautiful entries. Go check out our stiff competition– maybe you'll get some great ideas for any holiday events you have coming up.
It's always interesting to see how different people interpret the holidays, and I have a feeling this blog party will be full of unique ideas. Check it out HERE. We are entry #5!
What do we plan to change from our small, 4-person set up to the 8-person table we will be hosting for the official church event next week?
First of all, I need more flatware. I don't have eight sets! I'm considering a cool DIY project to personalize some old flatware, so stay tuned for that.
I'm also looking to incorporate some burlap as a table linen, and I need to come up with a DIY napkin holder idea. That DIY napkin holder won't be much good if I don't find some coordinating napkins... I guess this is the difference between actually having dinner and just setting up a pretty table. We need the practical things like napkins!
Anyway, at least we have a good start and know what we need to do before next Thursday. I'm super excited about our church event and can't wait to see some of my friends that I haven't seen in awhile. Who doesn't love a girls night with beautiful decor, delicious food and a wonderful Christmas message? It's going to be great!
