Has it really been that long since I last posted on here? I have been such a busy little bee trying to get items in my shop. It takes more time than I had imagined. I actually do need to learn to manage my time better. Am I the only one that gets on my computer and opens my Dashboard to post only to be sidetracked reading other blogs instead of updating my own? I'm terrible!!! I've mentioned before that I am a goal person, so I am making a list of things to get done with deadlines for completing them.
I wanted to share these little baskets (for lack of a better word) I have put together. I just added a bunch to my ArtFire shop. The little green containers were toothpick holders. I decided to dress them up with some beads and trim. Each one is different.
Isn't it amazing what a little lace and silk flower can make, and so easy!
Above is one of the sets I put together without the lace and flowers. Below the same set with the added florals.
Here they are on the table along with some of the aprons from my ArtFire shop used as placemats. As reference, these are luncheon plates.
I really like them with the lace and silk flowers, but think they would also be great for those picks often used on buffet tables for picking up fruit chunks, cheese pieces, etc. I also think they would work well for nuts and/or mints. I don't know how food safe all the pieces and parts are, so I would first wrap the treats in a circle of tulle or tissue or something, even a paper doily, to be safe. Cinnamon sticks would fit nicely in these also, for your tea or cocoa.
I even like them just as little ornaments or small gift holder for a small necklace...or money! I could really see these dressing up a luncheon table for a garden party or tea party. I would love to hear your thoughts!
