Merry Christmas! In case you were looking for some last minute inspiration to jazz up your table I thought I would share this tablescape with you. I mentioned in my last post about the DIY cornstarch dough ornaments I made with a cookie cutter and here they are on the table as place cards, laid on everyone napkins and are adorable keepsakes to take home.
I love the idea of salt dough for ornaments and hand print crafts but have found that its a little more porous and not quite as smooth, so I decided to try this recipe for cornstarch dough when making these ornaments. I made these ornaments as place cards for my work Christmas Party. These ornaments are inexpensive to make so its cost effective when making quite a few and can be painted and decorated anyway that fits your decor with any personalization you want. They also make great little take home gifts.
The Holidays are already flying by that I haven’t had a chance to share this lovely little get together with you. This month I hosted our book club meeting which varies in size of participants depending on everyone’s schedules, offering a simple meal with a Mexican style rice bowl bar that had very little cooking making it great for a week night.
