I wish I was the type of person who threw candlelit dinner parties every week. Alas, that ain’t going to happen any time soon. The closest I will get is a frozen pizza with a friend on the couch, watching The Real Housewives on Bravo (**ZOMG you guys, did you see the New Jersey premier last night? And her CRAZYTOWN fingernails?!?!?!?!?!?!**)
…ahem, so, about those elegant dinner parties…
On the rare occasions I do have people over for a sit down meal, I think it’s nice to fancy up with place cards and fingerbowls and oodles of candles….the whole nine yards. As a sidecar to yesterday’s post on resist “plaid painting” with rubber cement, I thought I would share some fun and funky place card luminaries. If you didn’t know, I’m crazy about luminaries. And wouldn’t it be fun to sit down to a seat with your name all lit up and glowing?
Tip: Don’t try to control the rubber cement too much. The more precise you try to make it, the sloppier it will appear. Just embrace the sloppy from the beginning. You’re writing with snot. Give your self some credit.
Tip: Get friends with short names. Good luck trying to print Manahethites on there.
PS: Rubber cement not your thing? Try some melted wax luminaries.
