For Fun And Giggles

So for fun I thought I would see if I could put together a fancy~pants Thanksgiving place setting....at the Dollar Tree! Here is what I came up with...


This was fun....



The details...


I found a super large plate...and decoupaged it with
the paper that they wrapped my items with....isn't it
purdy paper?

Instant charger!

I then placed another plate on top of the charger...

I found this little candle holder....cool huh?



I slipped an autumnal plaid dish towel into
a little circle~ly, loop~de~loo, thing~a~ma~jig that
I found in the the 80% off bin at Michael's...I let it join the party
even though I bought it atMichael's
because it was about 80 cent~olas...


Presto!
And the fun continues...I'll run to the grocery store in the morn and they will probably have a big freezer full of turkeys and I will sing a quiet zippy~do~da to myself....the prep for Thanksgiving is like my own little party...and I love every thankful minute of it....see you all tomorrow.

I LOVE the Dollar Tree paper...I wonder each time what I should do with it (as I'm throwing it away...)

These are beautiful place settings!

Beautiful job Ramona. We don't have a Dollar Tree nearby, but I am surprised that for a buck they have such nice paper to wrap fragile items, or that they even wrap them, ha! It also reminds me that I have a metal leaf candle holder dish thingie somewhere; need to find it.

Have a good one.

These look great! You can make Dollar Tree stuff look like a million bucks, Ramona. I'm impressed.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :-)

Wow this turned out beautiful! What a great idea to decoupage charger plates....I have been stocking up on them from thrift stores, and didn't know what to do with them since they are all different colors. You did a great job putting this together!
