When I saw this mood board I thought it would be perfect for the Nautical theme I had in my mind. Gold and ivory is so classy and royal blue always reminds me of nautical.
I knew I wanted to do large anchors for the table centerpieces. The only ones I could find were very expensive. I decided to make my own. I found these on the Oriental Trading Company website. They are plastic and I didn't like the color. I went to work modifying them.
I made the base using foam squares from Dollar Tree and wood grained scrapbook paper.
Then I spray painted the plastic anchor with the "metal look" and glued two together to make them 3 dimensional. With the added rope and shells, I was very happy with how they turned out.
This is how the family center looked....
And it wouldn't be complete without live fish!
I was very happy with how it turned out. You don't have to spend a lot to have a classy party!
Thank you for stopping by!
