Fly Away With Me

Recently I have been really inspired by hot air balloons.  I decided to do a table scape on air balloons and Valentine's Day.   To make the balloons I used scrapbook paper for the balloon part and toilet paper rolls covered with tissue paper for the basket.  On top of the chargers I used pockets cut out from an old shirt and embellished them with embroidery work, and added a beaded pom pom. I stuck the cupcakes in to liitle tea cups to look like capuchinos.  Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day

This month I am going to decorate two tables for Valentines. For this table I used a beautiful white tablecloth.  On top I folded tulle and placed it on the middle of the table. I then layered mercury glass candlesticks and a mercury vase.  I stuck some fake flowers in the vase.  Instead of a place mat I used a ceiling tile I found a habitat for humanity.  I then took some small perfume bottles and stuck a pinwheel in it from Dollar Tree. Enjoy.
