I know it’ll be months before most of us get to see brightly colored flowers blooming, so I hope you don’t mind seeing them here on my blog again! With Valentine’s Day and Easter right around the corner, I thought I’d share some pretty table decor today that would work for a nice dinner or even a super girly springtime party.
For each piece, I colored a cabbage rose that I die cut and embossed from some Crafter’s Companion Watercolor Cardstock with my Sparkle Pens. Starting in the valleys between the embossed areas, I added my darkest color (colors listed below). The lighter color was then applied to the inner portion of the embossed area and blended toward the outside of the petal or leaf with my clear sparkle pen.
For the placecard, I simply cut a piece of Gold Dust Shimmering Cardstock to 4″ by 6″ and scored it down the center. Then I added a pretty edge with the Cottage Lace die. The nametag was printed on my computer using a purchased font and was inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink around the edges. Foam squares were used to adhere my cabbage rose and give it just the right amount of dimension.
The napkin ring was formed by die-cutting a 2″ by 8″ strip of Gold Dust Shimmering Cardstock with the same Cottage Lace die. After gluing the ends of the ring together, I adhered my purple rose over top with foam tape to hide the rough edges.
The straw topper was probably the simplest of the three to construct – a scalloped circle was die-cut from gold shimmering cardstock and the red rose was adhered on top using four layers of foam tape to form a track just wide enough for the paper straw to slip through.
Since all of the pieces contain just a few simple die-cuts and some very quick coloring, they could be mass-produced for a large dinner or even a wedding pretty easily. I hope you enjoyed this sparkly table decor project and I’d love to hear your comments!
