Party Boo Welcomes You

Boo Bird put his party hat on.

So I had to set the table.

Party Boo is perched on a humble white pumpkin.

Rough hewn rope and brown craft paper
anchor the earthy side of this table setting.
Black , white, and brown
are the centerpiece colors
with pops of autumn
in the dinnerware.

The Sisal Mat was easy to make
gluing manilla rope onto craft paper.

Keeping with the humble simple
I made paper placemats
with brown craft paper and a sharpie.
Going with the Panera Bread
graphic line styling
I sketched the lines and circles
there you have it
simple paper placemats.

The black and White ribbon ties
keep connection to the centerpiece colors
and are layered on the colorful plates.
(my dinnerware design "Cinnabar" with Demdaco 2004
and "Florentine Bloom 2005)

I show how I made the black and white striped tray here.

Party Boo Welcomes You!

Looking forward to our Fall guests!

Sure! I bought my bird at Nell Hills in Atchison Kansas a few years ago. She has an online store but I don't know if she is still selling them.
