"Life is so Delicious" with Show Me Decorating Step Two

by showmedecorating |  | 1 comment

Show Me Decorating's Step by Step techniques apply to "Life is so Delicious" ladies event!

Step Two. Putting it all together.

"Life is so Delicious", especially when you know how to add pizzaz to your table decorations and invite friendly conversation over appetizers, dinner and dessert! Our theme and color story was based on the Keepers Cookbook cover that is black and white paisley and our bright-colored napkins. We used our vinyl squares (cut & purchased at Hancock Fabrics) in paisley and check, alternating on tables, topping white round cloths. Next we gathered our supplies of ribbon, pots, plants, paper placemats, tissue and cellophane and the assembly and decorating begin. I like to carry with me a tool and supply bag with scissors (extra for helpers), tape, wire, wire cutters, trash bag (for cleanup) and a bottle of water. Let's start decorating!

Now it is time for some centerpieces.

Being organized is key and setting up an assembly line will help speed up the process. Plants were purchased the day before the event to insure freshness, we chose some flowering and some herbs to match our cooking theme. Next tissue and cello were cut and placed on plants as we dropped them into the pots, you can secure with a rubber band if necessary. Yellow shred was added to top of plant for more color and to hide any ugly areas. Bows were tied ( see the step by step in our Show Me decorating app) and the wire was used to insert into the dirt to hold in place. Wooden spoons carried out our cooking theme and were inserted into dirt.
