DIY Table Decorations for Spring Brunch

By Afcpam @Yes

Inspiration for creating an event or wedding design can come from the tiniest thing.  I’m ever looking for new designs, color combinations, or products to create something fresh.

Saturday morning our Women’s Ministry, of which I am the director, hosted a Mother-Daughter Brunch.  The event included women of all ages in addition to young children, and teens.  The challenge in planning the decor and the program was to appeal to all age groups.  The hostesses did a fabulous job decorating their respective tables.  All of the ideas were unique and creative.

I decorated three of the tables, so I was on the lookout weeks ago for inspiration.  My favorite of the three tables was one that was inspired from some Martha Stewart stickers I saw at Michael’s.  The stickers were in a strip, which was just long enough to cut in half and create two napkin rings.  To give them stability, I added a backing of scrapbook paper:

The felt flowers and Lady Bugs on the stickers inspired the theme of the table.  I went with over-sized chip bowls, found at Big Lots.  I already had the over-sized daisies, but I purchased the orange pot at Michael’s.  Those 40% off coupons came in handy!

Adding little touches like the colored rocks and visors made it all come together.

I enjoyed making the place cards for each person.  I layered the card stock with their names and two other scrapbook papers.  The lady bug and flower stickers are also from the Martha Stewart sticker selection.

Our theme was “Beautiful Me”.  I did a play on words with” Katrina is Beetle-ful.”

The second table had a vintage theme to it.  I used softer colors in cream, yellow, and pink.  I found the china on E-bay.  The compacts were a guest favor.  I found them for $2 at Michael’s.  I made candy wrappers out of scrapbook paper.   I had fun making those; the guests had fun eating the Hershey’s chocolate bar!

For the diy centerpiece, I purchased this small, tabletop mannequin, and made a dress for it out of ribbon, rhinestones, and scrapbook paper, all purchased at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby.

The hat box, perfume bottle, and hydrangea for the centerpiece were purchased at Michael’s.  It made a beautiful vintage table.

The third table was my spa table.  When I think of becoming beautiful on the outside, I think of getting a mani-pedi and a massage.  The women loved this table!

When I decided to go “spa”, I thought it needed to have an earthy feel to it, as well as a relaxing appeal.  I think I accomplished both with this brown and turquoise color scheme.

It being a spa table, it needed a water feature.  Since this was a brunch and no candles were used, I brought the feel of a spa by using submerged tulips and river rocks.

I found these adorable little white buckets at Target for $1 each.  I switched out the ribbon to match my table and Voila!  I filled them with spa goodies.

Brown terry cloth wash cloths served as napkins, and I made personalized napkin rings out of scrapbook paper.  Notice the bar of soap above the plate.  It’s made out of marshmallow creme and Rice Krispies.  I was running out of time, so my friend Martha Rhoton made them for me.  The clear crystals surrounding the plates, added sparkle and they looked like big water droplets.

Whether you are planning a wedding or a party, you can use these ideas to make your own favors, place cards, or napkin rings.

Which is your favorite table?  Tell me what you like most about it.  Where do you get your inspiration to create?
