Shower Details

A few details from the shower.

If you do any kind of entertaining, cake stands are the perfect staples. They add height to a table, whether they're displaying a cake, a dip or a salad bowl. This one is glass (and has a dome that I rarely use); I've hot-glued all kinds of trim to the rim, from pink rick rack for a baby shower to this Moroccan-like trim I found at the fabric store. When your event is over, simply pull off the trim (which remains in its usable state) and peel off the glue.
I couldn't find gold utensils that looked like I wanted them to, so I bought clear ones, covered the eating part of the utensil, and spray-painted each one individually. They came out looking shiny and pretty, just like I wanted. Then I glued on the jewels.
I made 60+napkins by finding fabric on sale and ripping 10" x 10" squares. No need to hem them. The unfinished edge worked just fine. By folding and ironing them into "pockets," they made sweet little utensil holders.
For this shower, I knew that Courtney would do amazing flower arrangements, and so I wanted vessels that would compliment but not overpower the arrangements. A trip to the local Indian market produced canned goods and these lovely bottles.

Once again you are amazing! All those special details are what makes everything unique, and you have an eye for detail. Go check out my cottage post, and tell me what you think. Jackie
