Recently I filmed a segment for FOX29’s GoodDay Philadelphia.
(TG for interns)
I shared some ideas for how YOU can have a crafty summer party.
I started with some slate tiles from Home Depot and some green carpet squares from IKEA.
I want to create a base on the table that resembled an English Garden.
I thought it was pretty darn clever.
The first segment we filmed crafts.
So we painted a few mason jars.
After I cleared the crafts, I set up my version of a Ralph Lauren type picnic.
Each guest would get a tray and a clean dish towel.
(I like dish towels in place of napkins for their size)
The table was simply decorated with paint swatches and twine.
You’ve seen me do this before.
The water bottle labels are covered in duck tape.
To create more time with the guests, most of the side dishes are pre-made and put in mason jars.
Easier to handle too.
I stole the watermelon idea from Kelly at Eclectically Vintage.
Other drinks we color coordinated and places in mason jars.
Fill a bucket with ice and place your mason jars in them if your not in the
There’s even some table top games color coordinated with the party.
Don’t forget to accessorize your straws with washi tape too.
