Seeing as how we’re all swept up in Baz Luhrmann’s Gatsby, seems only fitting we’d curate a few headpieces to go along with the timeless glitz and glamour vibe. We’re loving these goodies from Enchanted Atelier . . . now if only we had reason to wear them to on just any old day?
I’m one of those die-hard napkin nuts- a pretty napkin makes a table. I was raised in a cloth-only household, and I take great pride in ironing mine to crispness and setting our table each night- even the wee ones get a real deal napp’un. So it only figures that I die over the below napkin rings, even if they do create a bit of artful chotchke on the table once removed. The hot pink World’s Fair 1939 vintage bakelite perisphere one takes the cake- and they also exist (though rare) in root beer bakelite, aka “poor man’s tortoise”! Die again.
When you have a flower girl like this . . .
Then how can you not design some high jinx + silliness at the kids’ table?
Start out with a playful place card- like this die cut wood plaque with calligraphy wood-burned name.
Lure them in with a fun party favor. Ours was a foundation of play foam (addicting stuff) topped with a plastic globe ornament (December wedding!) filled with silly band bracelets, glow-in-the-dark balloons, and other trinkets.
Switch up the centerpiece. Little folks don’t care about les fleurs, mes amis. We had our florist plant wheatgrass from which were “blooming” flower lollipops. You can imagine the reaction!
Let the centerpiece be lighthearted. Chargers = damage/not necesssary. Teak flatware was easy to grip, curly straws make everything taste better, who doesn’t love those wee birch pencils, and a craft paper topper made for lots of “art” throughout the night!
