Well, the Kindy parents have all been welcomed in style. I worked from home today and ducked out to attend to last minute decorating hassles and the actual lunch. We did most of the (cough) styling the night before so it was an easy job just before the lunch began.
Keen Maxabella lovelies will note that the garlands were recycled from my Australia Day bash. And they have already been snapped up by one of the mums to feature at an 11th birthday party next Saturday. There is satisfaction in my efforts getting more than one outing, I can assure you!
I made the bunting out of oil cloth (the very same oil cloth that I photocopied to make the garlands!). I made the flags a little smaller than usual so the scale looks grander. I like.
Look at those ugly napkins scattered everywhere, wrecking my photograph. Really, I'm sure one pile would have been sufficient, no? And, seriously, who bought the red plates!? *
It seemed that 150 circles was not enough for me in the end. At the last minute I pulled together some little 'food identifiers' that tied in with the cake toppers.
So, project complete. Now... what's next!?
* This is the control-freak in me coming out. I am so not a team player.
