Depending where you live are there old dried flowers? thistles or vines from
last winter? Spray them silver,dark green or even a bright color and scatter
mums or pansies through them, just the flower tops-they'll last a dinner.
There is also those "ropes" of tinsel often with stars or something that can
be laid out on the table or cover the table with colored kraft paper and
scatter crayons down the middle or put in cups and let the guests design
their own tablecloth. Have the doodles judged and give a funky ribbon to the
winner- or not it's still fun. There's a ton of things you can do. Have the
kids create "waterlillies" having some petals stick up and cut out organic
shaped "pools" of a pretty blue to scatter them on. Have fun!
