Earth Day 2012

Happy Earth Day!
I'm joining Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish. Although I'm a little late to the table (pun intended), I'm accepting her Earth Day Challenge.

Placemats are made from artificial grass with a cord edging. Napkins match the edging. Chargers are terra cotta dishes that normally catch drips from potted plants. Napkin rings are made to represent small terra cotta pots.



Place card holders and candle holders were made from a tree that had to be removed some years ago. The place cards were printed on yellow card stock.

The floral font used on the place cards is semi-replicated on the menu board that hangs over the buffet.

Be kind to our planet.

  1. I love your candle holders. Such a fabulous idea :)

  2. There are so many good ideas here like the terra cotta charger and the tree branches as candle holders! Perfect for Earth Day! Linda

  3. Very nice! You are always so clever! Did you see the cake pedestal I made the same way you made the candle holders?
    Love your place mats, and the candle holders and card holders. Thanks for joining in Let's Dish! I am afraid you won't get as much traffic as the early posters, people move on quickly in blogland!
    Next month is a Mom's Day theme, using something of your Mom's, or her fave color or fave flowers!
    Have a great weekend, Denise!

    1. Oh, I don't think I did see that cake pedestal, but I can certainly imagine it! In fact, it may be the center of next year's Earth Day table at my house.
      Honestly, Kathleen, I am really enjoying your Wednesday Let's Dish get-togethers! I can't always chime in, but I'm there! You have such nice people following you.

  6. Very nice! I love to eat out on the terrace. Looks like you have the perfect setting. Cute idea to use the saucers as chargers. I'm going to remember that idea.

  7. Denise this is fabulous! I love the idea of using saucers for chargers! It looks great! Your napkin rings are adorable too. You have really been very creative on your setting as well.
