|NOW these plates look ready for a party :)|
we have settled on 25 crafts that will be available to make on the day so people can pick and chose which ones they want to make and ensure they have a couple of pinterest projects to take home. with there being 25 we have had to spread them out over our three barns including our large shed. i didn't want my nice serving platters going down to the shed so i have opted for plastic ... as a bonus there will also be less dishes to do after the party :) the plastic plates did need a bit of modifying to be acceptable for a pinterest party though and luckily this idea from lauren geiger is perfect! what a great way to dress up a plate and not worry about whether it comes back to you or is broken or destroyed during projects in the shed ;)
all you need to do is punch holes evenly around the edge of the plate and then thread ribbon that matches the theme for the occasion through the holes, tie a bow, and fill as required. i obviously had to go with red and white for my colour scheme ;)
|... you can see why i don't want my serving platters heading out to the shed ... honestly with this guy in charge, would you trust him ;)|
outcome: totally impressed with how they changed the appearance of the cheap plates to something far more funky and exciting ... hopefully just like the party projects will be!
my thanks to lauren geiger for this cool idea, in fact, it's so cool i have stored it away on my pinterest 2012 advent crafts board for the peeps to use at christmas. and thanks to my hard working team tonight, you guys saved me heaps of time, i had better head back to it ... see you all tomorrow :)
