Each little hard cardboard tent got handpainted with gold paint. Then each one got a strip of gold paper attached to it. Then there was a lot of punching out names and hearts and attaching them to the little tents.
Here you see the finished project. Table place cards. A dear friend is having her 90th birthday and her stepdaughter and I are doing the table decorations for the party. In an earlier post I showed the ribbon bookmarks we made for each guest. We have also done candy bags with a cute header and edge punched and hearted with Happy 90th Elsbeth on them.
This is the special place card for the birthday girl. I think she will be pleased with the extra attention. This will be a grand celebration for a grand lady.
So never look at anything with only one purpose in mind. Anything is possible if you just imagine. My Grandma would be so proud that I learned such a valuable lesson from her. Thank you dear sweet Grandma. I absolutely know she is watching me from heaven and smiling.
My dear friend Lindsay reads my blog and guessed correctly. I think I may be putting the creative vibe in her mind as well. Good job Miss Lindsay Lollipop. :o)
Another week comes to a close and may you each have a terrific weekend. Celebrate the men in your lives as we have Father's Day this Sunday. I will be spoiling Mr. C as I am so fortunate he is in my life.

What a wonderful idea, to use them like that, and they looks wonderful, as do the place card-she will have a gorgeus day, your friend.ReplyDelete
of course, it is obvious now that we see your creativity. Lovely!ReplyDelete
I never would have guessed yet as you said back then - so obvious!! I love them, and I'm sure your friend will too - beautiful!ReplyDelete
It's funny isn't it, how we can all look at the same thing and yet something totally different. I love that - I think it is the essence of what being human is.
Well I am delighted to see what you did with the little tents! Such a great idea!ReplyDelete
I just saw Sherry's post about the lovely flower pin you sent her and read your post about luncheon with a friends. The flower broach was a lovely way to end a wonderful day with friends.ReplyDelete
The items you are making for Elsbeth's 90th birthday are fabulous. What a joyous celebration that will be.
Have a great weekend. Tammy
