High Hopes Holiday Decor

Hello everyone....

This week over at the High Hopes Blog
we are showcasing how you can use your
stamps to decorate your house for the holidays!!

I created a table setting for Thanksgiving!!

I decorated a flower pot, made a menu, napkin ring,
flower pick and a treat box. I could have kept
going and going with all the wonderful
High Hopes images but had to draw the line
for the sake of fitting it all into a!!

For my centerpiece I chose these beautiful
purple Asters and decorated the flower pot with

"Angel Bear Scarecrow"
"Single potted Daisy"
"Corn Stalk"
and a few extra crows.

The flower pick is
"We're all Ears"
"Happy Thanksgiving"

My menu is a gate fold card with the menu
printed onto parchment paper.
I used the beautiful
"Bountiful Harvest" stamp.

For my napkin ring I used
"Chubby Pumpkins" stamp.

I made this treat box using
"Sm. Turkey stamp"

I couldn't resist these chocolate
and caramel pumpkin candies...yummy!!

The pot is a wooden paper covered pot and I just
recovered it with cardstock and layered
the images with foam tape.

Here is a close up of the flower pick using
"We're all Ears" stamp.

I hope I have given you some ideas for
your holiday table setting.

Be sure to pop on over to the High Hopes Blog

"Winter Wonderland" table setting to inspire you!!

Have a great day
