Little Red Wagon #82 - Use A Number

This week Joanne challenged us to use a number on our creation.

A couple of weeks ago I hosted a Sweet Sixteen luncheon for my daughter Brittany and created several decorative items with the number 16 that I've been waiting to show until today.

First up the entire table:

I decided the theme was rustic elegance and used silver chargers, silver cutlery,silver napkins, kraft paper, burlap, crystal glasses, canning jars all set on a battenburg lace tablecloth.

I also put tulips in twine decorated canning jars. The canning jars also have rosettes that I made embellished with the number 16. And do you see the silver pinwheels I made mixed in with the tulips?

A closer look at the place setting:

You can't really really tell but the rosette napkin rings also have 16 on them.

And the table favours:

They are little peat pots embellished with silver pipecleaners and silver glitter then filled with little organza bags with a tag featuring the number 16.

On all the 16 embelli's(table favours and napkin rings as well as rosettes on the jars) I embossed the 16 in silver then edged with silver glitter. And they were so fun to make too!

Then I also decorated Brittany's gift bags and card in the same theme:

Kraft coloured bags with doilies and siver numbers.I used the Cricut Storybook cartridge for the lettering and numbers.

I hope you enjoyed this look at Brittany's 16th birthday decorations as much as I enjoyed showing it to you.

And if you can please join us over at Little Red Wagon with your numbered creation.
