I was just setting my dining room table for a dinner party tomorrow night. The invited guest and his partner is an associate of my Honey Bee and I want to make a good impression. I was trying out different dish patterns – wondering if I should go the china or every-day-dish route. I ultimately decided I didn’t want a formal, stuffy feeling – I want it to be comfortable and free flowing.
I chose an all white dinnerware with vintage silver elements. I remember this past summer when we were in Florida that I had seen a cute place card holder made from a new fork. I loved it – but priced at $15.00 each, I passed. Today I decided to give my crafty hands a try at recreating these place cards.
I have had these forks with other silverware for a couple of years. They were free to me…I purchased a trunk for $25 at an estate sale. I didn’t realized there were boxes inside this trunk and the seller told me he would include the boxes at no extra cost. Lucky me 🙂
I then bent the center tines to the back. Also, on the back tines, I spread them apart for a little of stability. I did have to tweak each one a little to make sure they would be stable once they were on the table.
This is how they looked when I finished!
Standing tall at the place setting 🙂
