My sister’s annual luncheon is a great example and my mom was always doing crazy inventive things for parties or school projects.
I don’t have quite the same gift – or at least I have it on a much more basic level. Whereas I tend more toward the “Eureka! that round thing could be a different round thing!” they see a round thing and think “three of those round things could be serving platter shaped like a Christmas tree!” So, although I’m not quite in their league I do enjoy prowling around the aisle of Home Depot playing the “what else could that be?” game.
My latest Mod Podge Rocks project comes from the plumbing section of Home Depot and I thought it might be good for upcoming spring/summer parties.
And while I’m not really under the illusion that anyone really NEEDS wine bottle coasters I thought they might be fun to have on a table. The project is so inexpensive and so simple you could do one just to coordinate with a specific event and not have blown the budget.
Head on over to Mod Podge Rocks if this might be up your alley.
It also occurred to me as I made this that you could do the same thing to make cool little dishes to hold keys, coins etc.
