Katie's table
yin and yang From 2013-07-16 (by Eye-Fi) From 2013-07-16 (by Eye-Fi)

With the help of the computer the symbols were easy to find. From 2013-07-16 (by Eye-Fi) From 2013-07-16 (by Eye-Fi) From 2013-07-16 (by Eye-Fi)

Wow did GREAT!
How cute that your DGdtrs..challenged you and with such unique themes too!
Love the Yin & Yang setting and how you used the symbols for the placesettings.. I like the simple yet elegant look to everything with the b&w and the pop of color with the flowers...very nice >>> Two Thumbs Up!!
Your Duct Tape Table is really Unique and very colorful. I didn't know you had 'hidden duct tape flower making talents' !! LOL I think they came out fabulous! You have to share how you made them. This table also gets a 'Two Thumbs Up'...each one is so different and done beautifully - with lots of thought...How did the girls like them?

Sorry I'm late to the table party....but WOW. You rocked both those challenges! I'm pretty much speechless over what you did with duct tape! I didn't know you were a magician as well as a decorator! That was just incredible!!

I find it so wonderful your little DGD's got so involved in your tablesetting fun, and came up with such creative ideas to challenge you. What special girls you have! And what a special grandma you are!

You sure made me smile with this post and the pictures.
It all just shouts "HAPPY".

hugs, Karen

Thank you so much everyone.
Jane, I Googled how to make the flowers.
The girls liked their tables.
Jeanne, I'm glad you liked the Yin and Yang table. It was one of the easiest ones I've done.
Party, I got the duct tape at AC Moore. Michael's and other craft supply stores carry it too. It comes in many colors and patterns.
Thanks for the 10, Candy. I hope the girls don't have any more challenges for me!!!! Thanks, Karen. glad to see you posting again!

Nana, Looks like you passed with flying colors on both of these tables. I have one of my sisters necklaces from high school that has your yin and yang symbol on it!LOL Not sure why I ended up with it but perhaps I should give it back to her after all these years.

I didn't realize duct tape came in such a variety of colors. Your flowers and place mats are wonderful creations, talented lady! So happy to see your still entertaining us here.

We will be moving to our new location this weekend. After all that is done maybe life will slow down and I'll find time to come and join in more. Right now I've been working at both locations and it's a crazy life I lead. Nothing could of prepared me for what would take place after selling one of our businesses. And to think we've started a new one also. I must be a slow learner.Geez!!!

I so miss ts and decorating here at home. Just no time in my life for that right now. I have DGD and son's little yorkie so best get in the shower and get ready for another day in Paradise!HA I keep thinking it's retirement time in the near future so that's what I'm working the hardest on.Sigh! Miss all of you and sending lots of prayers daily to our Dear Jeanne!!!!!
