Citrus Party!

Summer is a time for hot hot sun, bbqs, and for some reason fruit! No wonder this was the inspiration for a lovely table setting! Check out these fruity ideas from the Hostess with the Mostess!
Such a simple centerpiece, and when you are done it can be dessert!
Dress up paper napkins by tying them with ribbon to match your color scheme.
Using festive colored beverages is a great idea! What a refreshing decoration!
Plain colored flower pots get a makeover when you add playful ribbon!
Anyone throwing a citrus party for the last hoorah of summer?

Napkin Folding

So, I found this wonderful book at Borders for a cheap 4 dollars!! It contains MANY napkin folds. I hadn't really done the whole cloth napkin thing before when I had guests over, but now every time someone comes over for dinner it is my time to show off! 
Here are some of my favorites!
This one is called pinwheel
This one is called fire!
ice cream cute for a neopolitan soiree!
Lover's knot (wink wink)
You've got mail....the envelope fold
The diamond fold...this one wasn't as hard as it looked
It takes very little to please and amuse me. This book and my cloth napkins kept me entertained on a rainy Saturday afternoon..AND I learned something new!
