Each year it's all about the place settings. I have done painted terracotta pots - named with lollies inside, gold painted river rocks - named with black writing, 3D White card(as seen in the header above), Ferrero Rocher Trees, Cookie Trees.
This years idea came from Kids Craft Weekly - Cardboard Peg Trees. The kids could help make these and they were very easy. We painted carboard triangles green using our fingers (we have lost all our paintbrushes! I need to get to the shops one of these days) and glued on some sequins and punched stars. Add a wooden peg and write on name. They do stand up but fall over easily if bumped. I might use a little blu tac to keep them up or...
just lay it on the plate like this - still cute I think. The trees are about 10-15 cms tall.
This is what happens if you leave to go check on your baby you forgot about - minutes later miss G had completely covered arms and face :)
