This is not a problem for me normally, since Kris could care less about the table settings, but I've been planning a little something for Kris' 30th birthday that is
Luckily for me, I found this adorable DIY tutorial at A Creative Day for a DIY Leopard Print Tray - made with a gold leaf pen! (angels singing). Check out her cute blog, and her lovely DIY here!
Ikea has great (cheap) white dishes, and you can find a gold leaf pen at Michaels for less than five dollars! Done and done! I can't wait to whip up a few sassy serving platters and plates!
I love this irregular shape of this bowl, the modern look of this platter, and the classic lines this tray (which coincidentally would also look amazing on a coffee table or entry way to corral keys, mail, and the random nickles I find scattered around our house).
