Just for Fun! Take a guess....

On April 12 I was at the Wedding Salon showcase at The Roosevelt Hotel. There were so many beautiful tablescapes there but this one in particular grabbed my attention not just because of the size but it was truly gorgeous. Just for fun, I want you to take a guess as to how many roses are here. Go on, guess......

Napkin Knots

Learn how to tie some knots before you "tie the knot". I have always been inspired by Martha Stewart's bright ideas and I just love this one.....tied napkins on each plate.The napkins may also include a strip with your placecards.Here's how you do it:

1.Place napkin on a flat surface. Fold it in half diagonally to form a triangle, and fold loosely from the point up to the crease.

2. For the paper strips, start with quilling paper, which comes precut, or cut your own; they should be 1 inch wide and 2 inches longer than the napkin size (24 inches for a 22-inch napkin). Calligraph names on the strips, leaving about 4 inches blank at the end. Place one strip upside down on a napkin, as shown

3. Holding the strip and napkin together, tie into a loose knot.

4. Trim ends of the strip on the diagonal; adjust the paper if necessary so the name shows.

Mashed Potato Bars

I personally love the idea of a mashed potato bar because I just love potatoes done anyway (I can't help it, lol). I have seen the potato bar at a few weddings, more recently at Rita and Jason's wedding (review to come).
You can have mashed potatoes with a choice of dozens of toppings you wouldn't even believe you can put on potatoes. These toppings can be anywhere from: onions, scallions, cinnamon, honey, raisins, brown sugar, sour cream, cheeses and the list goes on.
Your guests will love you for this! Check with your reception hall to see if this is an option.
