But it lacked color, so I used the souvenir plates that I collect. Everyone really liked these and I think it will be fun for my children to see which plate they get each year. I also added the brown runners (actually a curtain from Wally world that I cut to size).
I also created a desert table. I wasn't really happy with the coffee urn; so I have replaced it with a silver one. I've seen that someone painted a crock pot with blackboard paint (sorry I can't remember this clever woman's name), So I may paint this urn. It would be so great to write what's in it on the side. I got all of these cake plates from thrift stores. I especially like the cut-glass butter dish top that I use to hold dinner mints.
