Maybe you could decorate each table with a different country theme. An inexpensive plastic tablecloth to match the country's flag, any type of container filled with sand for a centerpiece-each container then filled with each country's "products". For example: Mexico-a red plastic tablecloth-a basket lined with a green cloth then filled with sand-peppers on skewers put into sand-corn cobs pushed into sand-small Mexican flags pushed into sand-maybe even an onion or two sitting on the table next to the basket! And so on, and so forth. You get the idea! Maybe you could do some less well-known countries like Norway! (I have NO IDEA what they produce! LOL)

How about solid tablecloths, and plants as centerpieces with small international flags stuck in them. Probably flags can be ordered fairly cheap from places like Oriental Trading, or found on the internet, colored and cut and made into flags by glueing onto skewers.

You can purchase international flag cascade centerpieces for approx $4 each - place on a square mirror tile available from the Home Depot or other hardware store ( 6 tiles for approx $10). Then place cascade on top of mirror in center of tables covered with solid colour tablecloth. We also added small glass bowls with tealights in them (4 bowls for a dollar at the dollar store).

I live in the UK and our best known dish (I THINK) would be roast beef and yorkshire pudding. Or maybe fish and chips! (I'm getting hungry just typing!) How about colour copying a picture of that countrys cuisine and naming the country underneath?

I would suggest a black olive motif. Look on or other kitchen supply place for things with pretty olive designs.

Grape Vines might be good! I have several long strands of artificial grape vines that I bought one day as I thought they were pretty. Maybe we can figure something out on them, if you are interested. There in a box that hasn't been opened for years so I would have to check them out to assure you they are still in good shape, if I can even find them. If this is against ThriftyFun rules, I certainly don't want to put you or me in a postion where we aren't in compliance with ThriftyFun law. At any rate maybe you can find some in your area. If you really want to have a blast, you could always get a bunch of grapes and let people stomp on them like the old "I Love Lucy" epasode that everyone seems to love. Good Luck!
