I've decorated my table and it's ready for our party tomorrow night.
I made these napkin rings with the fleur de lis shape that I got at Michael's.
I hot glued them to some napkin rings I already had.
I like to add a LOT of trinkets and treasures to my table. I use a lot of beads, of course. I also add Christmas decorations in purple, green and gold. You can find these items after Christmas at great discounts. I use candles and doubloons, too. I didn't have many doubloons, so several years ago, I bought some on ebay. I got a buy it now deal on a flat rate shipping box of doubloons. They ranged from the 1970's to the 2000's. The designs and themes for the doubloons were all so fun--I looked at every coin as I washed it.
Here are the other decorations I use in our dining room.
It's just some garland with another wreath that I made.
I like to fill a big glass container with beads, balls and coins.
I usually put it on the center of the table with all the other
goodies that I have spread out the length of the table.
Here's a picture of the table with the lights on and
here's one made on a day that we had a little bit of sunshine.
Tomorrow night we will have red beans and rice,
crawfish etoufee', muffalettas, salad, bread and king cake.
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!
