Beckon guests to a festive candy buffet adorned with lanterns (add battery-powered mini lights if desired). To create the lanterns and jars, we employed a mix of vintage and designer fabrics from one of our favorite sources, Mood Fabrics. Spray the prints onto sheets of paper, then cut them out and fold in to cones. Use the scraps from that project as wraps for the containers.
Votive holders sporting floating balloons send centerpieces to new heights. Print our clip art onto paper vellum (it's compatible with most home printers). A few scissor snips and pieces of double-sided tape later, and your tablescapes will be ready to take flight.
Give guests sprightly bouquets of their own: arrangements of 'Ping Pong' mums, chamomile, and lady's mantle (or other blooms to fit your color scheme). The flowers are held in small plastic floral tubes filled with water; cones of decorative green paper hide the tubes. Pairs of the bouquets are propped in glass cylinders customized with bands of grosgrain ribbon around their bases. Narrow bands of green paper wrapped around the napkins and taped in back serve as place cards.
When printed on translucent vellum in soothing colors, lace appears even dreamier and more ethereal than it already is. To make square luminarias beautiful enough to be centerpieces, we simply magnified the lace pattern. Placed in a row, with no extra flourishes, the presentation positively glows with sophistication.
At these blossoming tables, conversation will be anything but garden variety. For centerpieces, print our exclusive clip art onto 11-by-17-inch paper, wrap around square candleholders, and trim the bottoms with ribbon.
