Courtney started a Book Club this past Monday, and to kick it off, she hosted a dinner party for her girlfriends who joined the 'club'! They are reading "When God Writes Your Love Story" by Eric and Leslie Ludy. When she told me she wanted to serve dinner the first night I said "Could I puleeeze to do the tablescape!!?" It didn't take much too much persuading to get her to agree. ;-)
So, of course, I ran about the house gathering old books for the center piece..
made personalized bookmarks for everyone, which served as 'place cards'..she also made journals for each friend..
The napkins were brand new from Goodwill...and serving as a placemat is MacKenzie Childs' paper napkins. I wanted to keep the setting fresh, colorful and fun.
Another view...oh yeah! I just got those blue water (or wine) goblets at the Dollar Tree!!
The blue 'crystals' hanging from the candleabra are Christmas ornaments I purchased at 80% off a couple of years ago..
...Thought this was a fun title, given the theme of the Book Club! :-)
There's a local antique store that sells these beautiful books for $2 each!! I just love the illustration!
So here are the journals Courtney made for her friends..
...and the back.I think her journals are lovely... I'm trying to encourage her to open an Etsy shop...Whatdiya think? Do you think she should give it a go?
