I used a tutorial that I saw on a Pinterest pin from Dandelions and Dust Bunnies called Ants . Except for the really bad burn on my left thumb, they were fun and easy to make. I also wanted to make some red gingham ant plates from some material I had found on Ebay a while back. I laminated the gingham ant material to plain clear square glass dinner plates.
Enough talk - on with the pictures.
There are ants walking on wooden watermelon slices from a garage sale (I think)
There are watermelon slices and lanterns acting as the centerpiece down the middle of the table.
The watermelon slices came from a garage sale for 25 cents each.
Watermelon salt and pepper shakers.
The lanterns came from Marc's last winter.
The napkins were bought at Pat Catan's Craft Store for one dollar each.
The flatware came from Marc's last year. $2.99 for a 20 piece set.
The black and white gingham check tablecloth was made from material found at Goodwill.
The desert plate and the bean bowl are from Marc's, three for one dollar.
I originally had three square lanterns with lit candles on the table. They looked cute but I like the watermelon slices better.
In this picture you can see the square lantern candle holders.
I will be sharing my extra set of Sunny Days serve ware with Laurie Ritchey. Thank you to everyone that visited my first anniversary blog posting.
