I gave a gift bag to each Steering Team member with a journal and pen...Gift bag above with a vintage girl image.
For our very low cost table centerpieces...
We took a wide mouth Ball jar, tied gingham ribbon around it, and then added the table name tag to it. We're going with famous TV housewives for the table names...(Lucille Ball, June Cleaver, Carol Brady, Aunt Bea, Betty Crocker, etc...)
Inside the jar we put pens, 3x5 cards,etc.. Our handmade name tags were made using wood clothespins, scrapbook paper, flowers, & old buttons.
I stamped 3x5 recipe cards with vintage cooking images, from a Crafty Secrets stamp set. The cards will be for birthday girls.
We also bought red plastic gingham place mats (a July 4Th clearance item) for our tables. Can't wait to begin the year! I love the "homey" feel of all our decorations.
