There’s nothing like sitting down with a good book, unless of course, you discuss it over a glass of wine with fellow book club members. Next time you host your group, set an appropriate table that they’ll truly appreciate.
Hard cover books are only $1.79 at Goodwill. Since I planned a green and black table setting, I chose books in different shades of green. Look for titles that your guests will appreciate. Carefully cut the pages from the binding with an X-Acto knife.
Arrange and overlap the covers to make a placemat. The shape will be asymmetrical. Hold in place with heavy tape.
As I always recommend, keep adding layers of dishes. The basic white plates (you should have a set by now) were only $1.99. I found matching black salad plates and mugs only $.49 each. The little plate adds a punch of color (also $.49 each).
Tucking a black napkin into a stemmed wine glass, gives some height to the table.
For the place cards I folded several pages from the book, accordion fan style. Write each guest’s name on a little scrape.
I love shopping Goodwill stores looking for things I can re-purpose. Someone donated a glass shade from an old bathroom light fixture. I turned it upside down, added moss I bought at a craft store and little tea lights. The polished river rocks (from Goodwill!) fill in the empty table space and bring black to the centerpiece.If you want a fun centerpiece idea for Easter, added colored eggs and jelly beans!
