50th reunion table centerpieces
My 50th HS reunion is coming up. There are 4 Catholic HS's in this city and we pretty much knew everybody in the other schools back in 1956-1960.
For that reason, we'ce decided to celebrate with a joint dinner/dance at a local spot.
Each school is responsible for decorating its tables. One of the schools (all male) has decided not to decorate its tables at all. Another has decided to have balloons in their school colors as their decoration.
It's not in my nature to decorate a table this way.
So, we'll do something, but not in such a grand manner as to look like we're showing off.
The tables are round tables, set for 10. As a starter, I'd like to have a clear glass candleholder, cylinder shaped, surrounded by grape ivy . Then maybe some "pretend diplomas" tucked into the ivy.
Perhaps also some wide ribbon going across the table and meeting in the middle under the candle holder.
I didn't mention there's a budget of $10 per table. The candleholders are mine, so those are free.
Any suggestions from the creative members that post here?
