Church Dinner Centerpieces

Our church is having their annual parish dinner. I need to create 33 centerpieces with an international theme. I would like to spend between $3-5/each centerpiece. Any suggestions? Help!

Here's an inexpensive centerpiece. Collect a nice looking variety of rolls from the day old section of your bakery enough for the amount of centerpieces you will need for your event. Set them out in a place with lots of light or in the microwave until they are rock hard. Coat them with a coat or two of varnish. Let dry.

Take some cloth napkins. You could make some out of scrap material or look for them at thrift shops. Possibly members of your church would donate some for use in the centerpieces. They could be returned after the event.

Use wicker bread baskets or other small baskets, one for each centerpiece. These could also be purchased at a thrift shops, dollar stores, or borrowed from the church members. Lay the napkin in the basket and add the varnished rolls. Take babies breath or other dried flowers and stick the stems in between the rolls. Decorate with ribbon either by tying around the basket or around the flower bunches.

A similar centerpiece could be made using fresh fruit.
