Have you ever wanted to dress up your Sunday Brunch (or any other gathering you host in your home revolving around food!) with your paper crafting expertise? Well, Certified Celebrator is here today with Kim to share how she makes simple and special touches to her table scape, her grocery store flowers and even goodies she sends home with her guests.
Let’s start with the overall table decor. You might have picked up a bouquet of flowers at the grocery store when you bought your food supplies. Well, there’s no need to leave them drab. Let’s use our Craft Shears to turn these into a beautiful, yet unique, arrangement perfect for your table. Let’s see exactly how Brittany and Kim put this beautiful bowl of blooms together!
Let’s move into individual place settings! It’s a brunch and everyone is going to need their own something sweet to enjoy our meal.
How about we make that something sweet some individual jam in their own tiny mason jar? This is super simple, yet sure makes an impact on the occupant of each seat. Would you like to see how to put this together? Let’s watch!
Mmmm! But that’s not the only thing to eat. We knew you wanted to send your guests home with a little something, so why not something that they can eat?
Brittany suggested granola and we totally agreed with her. You can use it at home in various ways and it fit with our Sunday Brunch theme. You knew we had to dress up the bags, too! They look good enough to eat and definitely serve as decor before the guests start snatching them up. Brittany and Kim had fun putting these together and we’re pretty sure you will, too.
