We are having a very large International Food Festival at school and I need some table decorating ideas - any help?
Kimmers in Wien
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?
Go to the following site and search the different countries it will give you templates for crafts you can do. I did the same thing for my project: i made a model of the eiffel tower. The website is: http://cp.c-ij.com/en/contents/1006/
