It's really hard to compete with some of you creative geniuses out there, but I think the following idea may make me a contender in the Thanksgiving table contest. *wink* What do ya think, Edie?
Tessa got a nifty sewing/embroidery machine for her birthday last month. She mastered that machine in record time and has been personalizing everything in sight! Instead of place cards, she did the guests' names on placemats from the Dollar Tree. We put them on the table opposite of how you usually see placemats, so that the name is visible above the plate.
I really love coming up with the idea and having someone execute it for me! Tessa's quite pleased with herself as well!
