Summery Dinner Table

3 May

We recently had a dinner party at our house and I wanted to get the feeling that the summer is really coming. So I started with golden table clothes and some yellow candles I bought at Ikea!!!

I love our dining room but it is sometimes drafty so the candles tend to drip. I thought if I created some cute medallions, I could put them around the candles and hopefully prevent the wax from dripping onto my pretty table clothes. This is what I came up with…

To create one, I used Spellbinders S4-345 Picot Edge Circles, cutting two per medallion. After cutting, I scored the die-cuts four times and then folded the score lines into alternating peaks and valleys.

Next, I cut the radius of one of the peak folds. After I completed two medallions, I glued the cut edges together and cut a small hole from the center of it. I used two different patterned papers to create a dozen of these.

It’s easy to simply slip them over the candles.

Also on the table are a collection of hand-made place cards, colorful rose buds in small wine glasses and a center strip sprinkled with colorful buttons, paper scalloped circles, and other fun elements.

By the time the party started, salad plates were set, dinner rolls put out in baskets, water poured and candles lit.

Thanks for stopping by…see you soon. Eli
