A Girls Luncheon with help from Rhonna Designs

Hello friends! Wanted to share with you just a few photos from the luncheon that I hosted this past weekend.  We had a great time catching up, having some yummy food then spent some time creating a banner with the new Spooky Junque Banner kit found HERE

Remember this invite above and that cute mason jar I shared last week?  Well, let's get to that party now OK?
I wanted to share with you how easy and affordable it is to decorate a table with digital art! 
You can click on all the photos to view them in a larger size.

In the photo above you can see the table decorated with various items created with some of the Honeycomb designs.  Love them!  I created a paper table runner by using one of the digital pieces from the Honeycomb Pieces kit found HERE  I simply used Photoshop Elements to digitally stamp the image several times.  Then printed it out on a 110lb 8.5x11 card stock which I bought at Office Depot.  I then hand cut it out and laid them out on the table. If you don't use PSE not a problem, just print out one of the designs from the Honeycomb Backgrounds Kit found HERE and cut it out as I did.  Easy as that!

Another idea I had was to print that design out on an iron on transfer then transfer it to some linen I bought at my local Hobby Lobby.  BUT, there wasn't a coupon in the paper last week and I wanted to do this on a small budget so that will be for another day. (Yes, there is a coupon out now and so I will be sure to stop by HL and pickup that transfer paper, you should too.)

 
OK, here is another view of the place setting, here you can see that I created some Menu's.  I used PSE to create these but not to worry, if you don't use PSE then simply print out some of the honeycomb background pages found HERE. Then create your menu in any word processing program such as Microsoft Word then run the previously printed background page through the printer.


Here is a closeup of the pocket I created for the silverware.  I simply printed out one of the pages from the Honeycombs Background kit found HERE again.  I then cut the paper down to the size I needed, cut out a scrap piece of burlap and using my sewing machine did a simple stitch on three sides.  I then printed out one of the designs from the Honeycomb pieces kit and then punched it out using my favorite Stampin' Up punch.  I added my guests name, inked the edges with some Vintage photo ink, glued it down and called it done!

Flags anyone? It's all the rage to use cute small flags or pennants if you will on Straws and toothpicks and so here I created some of my own!  Once again I went back to the Honeycomb Background Kit found HERE and printed out a page of the yummy yellow honeycomb.  I then typed out some affirmations then ran the background paper through the printer a second time to print the affirmations on it.  I then trimmed out the pieces, folded them applied some glue and poof I was done!

Are you seeing a recurring trend here?  With one kit you can do so many things and you can use it over and over again!  Print them out at home or run them up to the local Office Depot.

How about some chair decor? Well, another easy idea for this too, went back to Honeycomb pieces kit found HERE and added some words to it.  Sent it to the printer, trimmed it down added some ink and hung it on some burlap.


Here is a terrible photo of the delish Ham & Swiss Sammies we had, you can find the recipe at my friend Kristen's blog Here .  I also made a Peach Dump cake for dessert and you can find that recipe on her blog Here.  And I included another shot of the table, that was a yummy simple salad :)

Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check back this week.  I started playing with the new Spooky Junque Banner Kit found Here and will be sharing what I have in the works. 
**Frames used on all photos above are from the Simple Photo Edges Kit found HERE
