Picnic Table Decorations

I attended a meeting and potluck. The tables were decorated with red and white gingham checked tablecloths, with red napkins and red drinking cups. Small individual dishes of jelly beans were the favors for everyone to take home with them. The biggest hit of the decorations was the plain, white paper placemats with black ants drawn and colored on, along with word "Picnic". Cute! Eye catching!

I've taken quart Mason jars and filled halfway with glass gems(craft dept) in whatever color I needed, nestled a glass votive holder down in the middle of the gems with candle inside. On the outside of rim tied raffia and hotglued silk flower. Pretty cheap and looks nice too. Oriental Trader has really cheap tablecloths too in prints and solids.

Reading one of the previous entries about the placemats being plain white with ants drawn on them made me think of something you might consider doing along that same line. How about a plain white placemat decorated to look like a recipe card? I think it's a cute idea if I do say so myself,LOL

I am hosting a cookbook sales kick-off picnic for all those who have helped on the organization of the cookbook. I am looking for outdoor table decorations for this theme. Or any other ideas?


Picnic Table Decorations

What about crocks (or other containers) filled with cooking utensils or wooden spoons, decorative drink pitchers or nice serving bowls. They could even be raffled off at the end of the picnic (07/16/2005)

Use the green grass type floor covering that you buy by the yard ... looks very festive and you can also wash it off if it gets spilled on! (08/10/2005)
