Place Settings

This afternoon the kids made those pine cone and peanut butter bird feeders, so I decided to search 'pine cones' to see what else we could do with them.  I came across this place setting and I my interests shifted from pine cones to place settings. 

Place settings are one of those 'better in theory' type things.  They look nice and you like the idea of the place setting, but when it really boils down to it, people just want to eat...they don't want to have to be picking leaves and apples off of their plates.  None the less, I got lost in the pointless, yet enticing, spin offs of the typical place settings.  Now all I need to do is find a reason to have a fancy dinner...Thanksgiving's not for another two months!

Brace yourself.  This might get complicated...not just anybody can do these.  Once you figure out how to do just one, you may too exhausted to do any more!  Do you think you can handle this?

Are you kidding me?  This is like the easiest thing ever and I have to say, I kind of love it!

Oh, wait...maybe this is the easiest thing ever, and it's free.  I hate these.  Ever step on them barefoot?  It hurts.  I have to say, I never would have thought to do this.
These may all be a little hard to see, but the thing I wanted to point out is that the names are literally written on the leaves and the stick.  Who comes up with this stuff?

It's ridiculous how cute this is.  I think I'll have a Preschool Graduation just so I can do this!

So for those of you that are now sucked into the 'pointless, but give me a reason' place setting vortex, this may come in handy:
Go ahead, knock yourself out!


  1. For simple can this be? What a great idea! I'm thinking maybe being real creative ain't such a good thang!!! Maybe simple is the best route to take from now on! Love- The Grammama

  2. Watch out. Sunday will be here soon. You will be enjoying one of your, all so cute, ideas. Thanks for sharing.
