I’ve had such a productive day! After work I got my hair cut (for the first time in SEVEN months!!!), ran a bunch of errands, and then we had our friends Jana and Wade over for dinner! I made my new go-to fast dinner: pre-marinated Carne Asada from Trader Joes (LOVE it!), baked asparagus, and roasted rosemary potatoes…with flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Yum. It was such a nice evening!
I forgot to take pics of the dinner to share with you, so instead, I’ll show you one of the projects I worked on for our reunion dinners last weekend. We needed a way to mark the tables so the various reunion classes knew where to sit. We found these paper mache numbers online for a few dollars each:
and I found these fence post toppers at a hardware store for a little over a dollar a piece:
I screwed the numbers to the post toppers with a wood screw and then spray painted them alternating white and blue. These were the finished project:
and THIS is what they looked like on the tables:
I just LOVE how they turned out (the white numbers went on tables with blue tablecloths). I’m guessing not a lot of you have a need for class numbers on tables, but these would also work quite well for table numbers at any wedding or other big event!
