Winner Dinner (not related)

Aaron from mudpiesandmarigolds.com is the winner of my giveaway! Congratulations!

A couple of weeks ago, I served prom dinner. I had great help from "Mr. Grill Master," and my "Super Talented Don't Know How She Can Fit so Many Creative Ideas Into Her Head" niece.  Our dinner was in my son's casual family room, so "Super Niece" had the idea of decorating with crayons and paper.

Rhinestone gems were glued on the ends of crayons to create a crayon topiary. Super Niece constructed a crayon candleabra and crayon napkin holders.


My favorite part of the table was the artwork that my niece incorporated into each place setting. She outlined the fork and knife with some funky graphics, and provided a different theme frame under each plate in which each guest could doodle. 
IThe The room was finished up with white lights and paper lanterns. In the evening it looked fabulous.  And yes, the guests had fun doodling on  the white tablecloth. 
Don't you wish "super niece" was yours?.....sorry, she's all mine:)

I hope you are having a wonderful week.
Blessings,
Ele
