    This week I've finished the table plan and printed all the tables out and made all the table names!

    [​IMG]

    We eventually decided to name our tables after some of the places we visited in Canada. I was going to cut out the hearts myself but then I found some ready cut so all I did was paint them pale green then stamp different shades of green stars all over them. While the star paint was still wet I sprinkled green and pink glitter on them and then stuck the ribbon around the edge. I stamped the names onto the hearts rather than painting free hand.

    [​IMG]

    I used 3 suitcases to make the table plan. I covered them in paper and my sister is going to cut out hearts and stick those all over randomly along with some buttons and paper flowers.

    [​IMG]

    Then we are going to peg the tables onto ribbon something along these lines...

    If I'm honest though, when I saw the title of this thread I thought you might be selling some of your stuff. ;)

    Thank you ;) The table names are my favourite and turned out far better than I thought they would.

    I've still got some sewing to do, I need to do a couple more table cloth centres and one short string of bunting with the flags closer together for the gate.

    Thanks :) No hadn't thought of that I didn't think anyone would buy this sort of thing as people who like that style are generally crafty and like to make it themselves. Might consider it if I thought people would buy it, hmm.
