Mickey Mouse Tablescape

Mickey Mouse TablescapeOddly enough, this Mickey Mouse Tablescape was not for a child but for a 23 year old (hence the wine glasses on the table) with a love of Disney and a great sense of humor!

Pulling together a quick fun tablescape should be fast, easy and inexpensive and this tablescape was.

With just 3 elements I was able to make the whole table look  Mickey Mouse inspired. This theme would also work well for a baby shower.

It was a fun lighthearted party that the birthday girl truly enjoyed.

how to make the perfect breakfast in bedBreakfast in bed, it sound so romantic and indulgent. 

It can be a real treat for someone who has been overworked and frazzled. The most lovely way to start a day is to be pampered.

But how can you make a breakfast in bed perfect? It takes a little bit of planning and knowing what the person would truly appreciate.

Most of the time fancy foods and fussiness is not required. What they would really appreciate is a simple well made breakfast that they would enjoy presented in a beautiful way.

how to dress a bottle of champagne
Dressing a bottle of champagne gives it an extra bit of prestige when presented on a table.

This was something that I was taught to do years ago but doesn't seem to be done so often anymore.

In the high end florist store I worked we were routinely brought bottles of expensive wines and alcohols to dress them or the cradles that they were being served in.

For one of our own recent parties I dresses this Methuselah sized (yes, that is the correct term) bottle of bubbly as it was the show piece of the wine table.

how to make a tea towel chef's apronYou need to get ready for some spring cleaning and to get yourself in the mood why not whip up a tea towel chef's apron.

Tea towels often go on sale and it is a pity just to use the great colors and patterns that they come in just for mopping up.

This apron was made with two 99 cent tea towels I picked up at the Cambridge Towel Outlet Sale.

Easy to make this tea towel chef's apron is meant to be washed many times and still look good.

These can also be made up quickly as gifts for the cooks, barbequers and bakers in your life.
