My creative space...

You know, last night I made a promise to myself that I would do this blog post bright and early in the morning so I could link up and be in the first handful of people linking up to My Creative Space.  I failed.  It's 5pm and I'll be 100 and something down the list.  So if you actually read this let me know!!  Haha!!

Sunday night husby and I have been invited at the last minute to a Valentine's dinner with friends.  I volunteered to decorate the table!  I didn't realise I was volunteering to do it until I had already said it.  And then of course I realised what I had got myself into.  So today I have spent forever coming up with something!!

First I put the stones in a vase..


Then made the florist foam base for the flowers on top.. 


I just made a tonne of red fabric rosettes and pinned them on, and added a few pearls & leather rope for effect...


Bought the white tableclothe for the night, and whipped up that runner last night.  Now to make name cards & maybe little gift boxes for each person.

Go here for more Creative Spaces...

It looks great! Fits the theme without being too mushy :-)
btw, you were #127, and I'm #128!!! We had a breakfast at the school (so I had to be there at 6:30am to help set up) and then swimming lessons, and then doctors appointment, then the supermarket, then pickup the kids, then dinner, *then* 'my creative space'!!
Same thing every week :-)

Your centerpiece looks amazing, not too over the top. Would love to see pics of the final setting.

I AM READING THIS POST! :-) I am also jealous of your ability to come up with instant awesomeness! Looks FAB so far and can't wait to see more and pics from the night (DO NOT FORGET THE CAMERA and they will let you take pics right???)
