Well Baby Bee is 12 years old now and is not always wanting to do things with her mom (or dad for that matter), but she sure has gotten into the table setting contest at the Big County Fair. So glad we enjoy this together.
For the Junior Division, they only need one place setting, but they still have to design the menu, have linens, create a center piece, and coordinate dishes and flatware.
Baby Bee wanted to do an Easter table this year, especially after we found the fabric at Hobby Lobby.
I love the vibrant colors and the pattern. Not your typical Easter colors, but I think it works fabulously!
She used a plate from my wedding a china and a depression glass plate. The glass she found at World Market and the flatware was her great-grandma's (well they're mine now) and the napkin is from the set my mom sewed for my fair table last year! Love when we can reuse things!
One of the things she lost points on last year was her menu, so she made sure to follow the USDA food pyramid and include lots of fruits and veggies. She picked out the background picture and the menu and the font. She glued it to a foam core board. After she glued it she felt it needed a little trim along the edge and I happened to have some ribbon that went perfectly with her table.
Her center piece was Easter grass and some glittered eggs I already had. Again, I love all the colors together.
And she earned 1st place this year! So proud of her!
I'll have more Jr. Division table settings soon, including my niece's, Reader Bee!
