Summer Entertaining Ideas

Summer is a great time to entertain and I’m always looking for quick and simple ideas to decorate. Designer Terry Ricioli created a centerpiece, plastic utensil holder and even cocktail pics you can make in a snap! You’ll find complete instructions and a supply list on Terry’s blog here:


Using our Taffy Stripe Ribbon, she trimmed a painted wood lighthouse. I just love how the stripes dress up this centerpiece.

Next, a little ribbon around a blue metal pail and a bow store red plastic utensils neatly on your table.

Don’t forget the cute little toothpicks made into nautical flags. I can just see these on some shrimp or crab bites, ready to “sail” right into a hungry mouth!

Last but not least, a Taffy Stripe napkin ring, complete with painted wood stars. Cute. Quick. Easy! That’s my kind of crafting!

Until next time,
