Today, I chose to feature some cute and pink napkin rings I found while surfing the net.
This is a wooden bangle type of painted napkin ring from Alibaba dot com
And these pretty roses napkin rings are from Country Living dot com
When we had to move to Texas, we had to drive through New Mexico on highway I-10. Since we were in for a long drive, I pulled out the camera and started take pictures of anything interesting. A little bit of sightseeing- in a moving truck! (Ha, ha, in a moving truck that was moving! LOL)
Come see what I found:
Gigantic rock formations lined the freeway! I wondered if when they were plowing through, these are what they uncovered and they placed them in groups before moving the next one because:
Each pile were positioned almost diagonal of each other across the road. It went on like that for several miles.
Look, they even have some tall ones on the other side! Some, on the background are massive hills of different sized rocks!
Some look deliberate in groupings, some very random... And some...
Look like no machine was able to move it due to its sheer size, so the freeway adjusted to where it was though it seemed straight on, the map layout on Google show you otherwise. The last one was truly massive- it is one solid rock!
Thanks for joining me and Christine today in our sightseeing adventures today. Dust those sneakers, binoculars and replace the camera batteries, America is waiting to be photographed! And the world!
TABLESCAPING IDEA: (The awesome and beautiful "Brain" just keeps getting better and better at this!) Gather friends and families you've traveled with. Prior to the party, upload pictures and print them all out. Place them in smaller albums of each location you've been in. Place them in front of each placesetting, but not for the person in that album. Using pink linens or dinnerware, create a garden like setting on your table: green moss, flower pots, blossoms, etc. Use natural napkin rings. You can even do this in the garden, at dusk. Set up for later lighting and candlelight ambience. As the guests arrive, tell them what you're doing (reminiscing) and to take a seat. Tell them not to open the albums until food's been served. Buffet style is great here. When everyone's plate is full, ask them to take a look at their "favor" album. Because you put them in random, watch the fun begin when comments of "Oh, this is at... I wish I went with you. or "Hey, that's my album then, I was there!" Let swaps of albums and memories flood the evening. To sweeten their departure, surprise them with some delicious chocolate to savor on the way home while remembering another great time with you!
