Quick and Easy Party Placemats

“It’s more fun to talk with someone

who doesn’t use long, difficult words

but rather short, easy words like

“what about lunch?”

-Winnie-the-Pooh-

journal entry:

A person doesn’t have to look very far to find “happy things”.  When I spotted this scrapbook paper, I knew instantly what it was meant to be.  I traced each flower onto a contrasting card stock and cut them out.  I attached the fronts and the backs with a teeny tiny piece of tape just to hold them in place. I used some clear contact paper I had on hand.  I put the flower onto the peeled contact paper and sealed them.  I trimmed the edges to within one half inch of the flower. I can picture little girls in pretty dresses sitting around a tiny table. I can see their little dishes on their place mats and their little, tiny cups and saucers. Everyone is happy to have such a bright and happy party table.  Why . . . I think that  even a busy mother could make these pretty placemats for her little daughter’s birthday party ! She could send them home as favors.  Now, there’s an idea !


p.s.    The cups and saucers are tiny. The little napkins were very easy and quick to make.  They are just little squares.  The little napkin ring is actually a shower curtain hook.  Goldfish and M&Ms always go together and everyone loves them.  Did you know that you can have a party even when no one is having a birthday?
