Entertaining in style
I like to make many of my own designs but sometimes I just don’t have the time! I was looking for a simple idea for summer entertaining ideas and came across an idea at thoughtfullysimple.com that I would like to share.
This idea is for placemats that can be cute, classy, or fun. You can use it for summer parties like barbecues or graduations, birthday parties, or for your messy little one as they get older and their “tastes” change! This is a quick and easy way to personalize any occasion!
First, take a trip to your local craft or paper store. Pick out your favorite scrapbook paper (typically 12x12). I found adorable summer prints that were double sided with different patterns so they are versatile.
Then, head to your local FedEx Office® to have it laminated. (Find the location nearest you here.) Lamination is inexpensive and fast – just ask a team member for help and you’ll be done in a jiffy. Your guests will be impressed with your style and the lamination makes them reusable! For some lamination tips, see this post by blogger Leah.
Bonus idea: You can even take pieces of corresponding plain colored paper at FedEx Office, cut it into strips and finish your decorating theme off with matching napkin rings. Hope this fun project makes your summer entertaining a breeze!
