Call me Martha Jewart

by Decemberbaby

I learned something about entertaining a couple of weeks ago. A beautiful finishing touch is all you need to make people think you’re completely ready. When I had my family over for Shavuot, everyone focused on the adorable napkin rings and nobody noticed that I hadn’t yet put out any water or wine glasses!

Look how nice these are:

 

 

I cut strips of textured scrapbooking paper (about 1 1/4 inches wide) and tiny tags of white cardstock. Then I made a ring out of the scrapbook paper and secured it (and the name tags) with small brads. Voila! I think the whole process took 10 minutes to make 8 rings… and my family commented all night on how well-prepared I was for this dinner.
