A group I belong to is having a potluck dinner tomorrow night.   I volunteered to head it up.

Since it's February, the theme is Love.  For centerpieces, I bought tiny red gift bags at the craft store and flowers from Wal Mart.  I inserted pieces of floral foam in each bag, then stuck flowers in and added tissue paper on top to cover the foam.

Here's the 20 centerpieces, which will be arranged on tables covered with pink, red, and white plastic tablecloths, Valentine's conversation hearts candy, and Hershey's kisses:

We're expecting approximately 200 people. I've bought plates, utensils, cups, and napkins. Now all I have to do is figure out just how much coffee, tea, and lemonade that many people will drink!


  1. Oh wow! This is really going to be fabulous! I just love what you did. It'll really make the place look festive and classy.

  2. So much work--the pretty centerpieces must be the least of it. Have a great time.

  3. lovely centrepieces! 200 is a large function, good luck with that!

  4. love the centerpieces! I bet you had fun!

  5. Love the centerpieces. Did you give them away or did you get to take them all home again?
