One simple natural element, oh the possibilities!
The idea started with a magazine copy cat challenge. More about that at the end.
And I thought, why stop there.
I wanted to show how you can reuse the nest for each season.
By combining the starfish, nest and white dishes, you have a summer look.
Same place card (a stencil was used to write my name).
You could use this idea to label food items on a buffet.
Add a colorful leaf, simple beauty.
You could use any fall shape, a pumpkin, a turkey (these leaves came from the Dollar Tree~10 in a pack for $1).
The nest made an appearance all year long.
The next time you see them, I’d buy 8-12 and find a way to use them.
Now on to the magazine challenge,
I love these challenges because they make me think.
And I have a gazillion magazines. This is from an oldie, but a goodie.
I used some real and faux flowers.
A pinecone, the same nest and place card.
Add some greenery.
The inspiring magazine:
(click on the above link to order her magazine-she didn’t tell me to say that-but I did see her in Sam’s in Savannah one time, but that was before I started blogging-and I did go up and talk to her-because I do stuff like that-just ask The Nester

The inspiration page:
and here’s what I came up with:
My page take 1.
I couldn’t decide which one to use.
Go through those magazines and get inspired!
p.s. I love Paula Deen!
