I wanted to share with you a project my daughter,
Katie helped me paint.
I've seen lots of creative ideas on Pinterest and
wanted to paint a rustic runner for the table.
I found the patterned paint roller at
~Flock Patterned Paint Roller~
We decided to use butcher paper to see
how the design would look.
The Painted House has lots of different patterns
you can choose from. Also Etsy sells them too!
We really liked the way it turned out.
Katie had to leave the next day,
so we planned on painting a linen tablecloth
when she comes home soon.
I decided to set the table this weekend with it.
Our youngest daughter, Carly, was leaving for New York.
She's helping out with opening the new
Westfield Shopping Complex
next to the World Trade Center.
So, I wanted to have a special dinner for her.
I wanted to use vintage napkin rings for some ideas I had.
Figs, Brie, Grapes and French Bread for appetizers.
I never thought to decorate my candelabra with foliage,
I love it!
Roses from the garden added to the cake and decor.
Just a little color on a painted runner makes everything look
