JUST AN IDEA....

I am always on the lookout for cute table decor. A centerpiece can make a huge statement on a table and bring an otherwise boring menu up to a fun food party! Here is a cute idea I ran across the other day. It would be perfect for a cook-out or even for a child's party!

Simply use a jar or vase and place a rubber band around the center. Carefully slide colorful straws underneath the rubberband...covering all of the glass.


Add water and flowers...and tie some matching ribbon around the rubberband to hide it! There ya go! A quick and easy centerpiece. Well, actually, you will probably need several of these to go down the table, but, you get the idea! Enjoy!

Lovely and quite to the season, Tonja!!

With the Fourth coming up, I can see sales of red-white-blue straws skyrocketing.

Did I just say that?

What a neat idea, Tonja. That would be great for the 4th of July, if you used red, white, and blue straws.
