How To Plan For Fall Dining

The first day of “fall” officially took place over the weekend. It couldn’t have felt further away from autumn, though. Was it the same for you? I think it’s just strange to see the leaves on the trees morphing into beautiful fall shades while the weather outside doesn’t match. It’s almost like watching a movie with delayed audio.

Turn Table Covers into Decorations

This past weekend, we hosted the Salon themed birthday party for the 10 year old. Needless to say, the soiree was a success and girls’ night was a blast. Morning decorating, I will admit, was definitely hectic and busy. Friends and family were gracious enough to come over to help decorate and get all the salon stations ready for the festivities.

As my cousin and sister were setting up the main table, they decided to experiment with the two colors selected for the plastic table covers. We had extras so they thought it would be fun to make the most of our supplies. They placed the darker color, in this case purple, on the bottom and they placed the lighter color, pink, on top. Then, they folded both of the long sides in, sketched half hearts and cut them out. Once the sides were unfolded, whole hearts appeared and the darker color showed up, making it look like purple hearts along each side of the table. The outcome was adorable!

The guests all thought the table covers with the heart cutouts were store bought! The key is to work with what you’ve got. In this case, our table covers added supreme decoration to the table setting!
