The Year of the Sheep
We'll do the top left year first! That's the year we invited our Family
Tree readers to send us thrift store sheep! And send them they did! We
had mail that "baaa-aaa-d" at the post office and "baaa-aaa-d" when it was
delivered to the library! We received big life-sized sheep and teensie
itty bitty sheep...and when the big weekend arrived...our decorations were
unique and fun. You'll also see a few photographs of the decorations when
they were done.
What color tablecloths? Why, sheep must have green pastures, of course!
So, green tablecloths. We used green plastic cups with sand - donated by
our friendly local concrete company - and Dollar Tree green candles.
So, it's simple enough. About 50 green tablecloths...the sheep
artistically arranged down the middle of the tables...Candles every few
feet...garland and ribbon and glitter (Don't forget the
glitter!)...placemats, programs for the evening...our little paper cups of
chocolates...and our Scottish Weekend pins at each place...and the tables
We blow up balloons in coordinating colors using helium and shiny ribbon
for streamers...We attach balloons to greenery and allow some to float
free around the edges of the room.
The room has been transformed.
We needed some goodie bags for our special
Scottish Weekend the year of the sheep. We used a rubber sheep stamper.
