Does this tie make my napkin look fat?

by Decemberbaby

We’re organizing a retirement party for my father-in-law, and I’m working on the decorations.

The theme is “no more ties!” because, holy cow, this man hates wearing a tie. With a passion.

In that spirit, I present to you a terrible snapshot of my prototype napkin ring.

The colours in the photo are a bit off, but you get the idea. I have three different fabrics: this peacock-feather pattern, a blue argyle, and a green plaid (I think).

Next up: how to turn his ugly old ties into bouquets of flowers for the centerpiece. Or a runner for the buffet table. Or something decorative.

  1. How cute! For the tie bouquet, could you use pipe cleaners wrapped around the ties to hold them upright in a vase?

  2. Love it!
    There are a million things you can do with the ties. Tie up balloons, make camera straps, apron straps, etc.

    Good luck!
