I am working on a Mexican-themed tablescape for a P.E.O. dinner coming up in June. It is another meal that two sisters and I offered for auction at our chapter’s annual fundraiser. Once again, we will hold the dinner in a backyard surrounded by a beautiful garden, weather permitting.
I want to get everything organized now so that I am not stressing at the last minute (like usual!). So over the past couple of days I have been shopping at Meijer and all of the local dollar stores trying to collect pieces. I have especially been looking for small, colorful planters and maracas to use for place cards/favors, but neither are to be found in my metropolis. I think I will scour Oriental Trading Company for what I need.
Anyhow, below is a “test run” using a (WRINKLED — oh no!) table cloth that one of my cohorts brought back from Mexico a few months ago. The flowers in the center are just something I threw together (er…threw in the cart at Dollar General) this morning. Any suggestions? I am game for ANY.
