This beautiful table was created by the designers at Craig Bachman Imports and we'll show you more it later, but today we wanted to focus on the silverware packet.
The combination of paper mesh products, burlap and lace is demonstrated through the table arrangement and setting.
The silverware packet was made from 4" Deco Paper Ribbon. One nice difference between Paper Mesh and regular Deco Poly Mesh is that the Paper Mesh product will lie flat, whereas the Deco Poly Mesh has a "memory" and will roll up onto itself.
The packet was made by cutting a strip long enough to fold the edge up and still leave an opening that will show the silverware as above. You may have to experiment on the size with the dinnerware that you will be using. You can cut your paper edge and pull out a couple of strings to make sure the Paper Mesh is straight. Just hot glue the edges together.
The contrasting bow was also made out of Paper Mesh using a ruffle technique. Just cut a strip and scrunch or pinch up down the middle of the ribbon. Use a fine floral wire to secure the center and hot glue pearls or a tiny bit of bling, or blossom, even a little polished stone would look nice. Then hot glue the whole thing to the packet.
There are more crafting ideas to share from this table setting......and we'll share those a little later.
Lots of option for the silverware packet......Red and White Paper Mesh
for a backyard party.....could hot glue little ladybugs or a star for a Fourth of July feast.
Halloween....Black and White Paper
or one of the Halloween styles of Paper Mesh with a little plastic pumpkin or acorn.
