Smooth Talking At The Dinner Table
SUNDAY, AUGUST 15, 2010 | Comments: 6
Love rocks. A recent trip to the beach provided us with these beautiful, worn stones. With the addition of a few vinyl adhesive letters – we created alphabet rocks.
We're having friends over for dinner tonight. Our plan is to scatter these around the table – spelling out words with these stones will provide entertainment for both children and adults as well as add a bit of natural beauty to the setting.
These stones are incredible to touch – the waves of Lake Michigan have worn them down into smooth treasures. They feel so good, they're hard to put down. We used vinyl adhesive letters from Office Depot.
Since I am using these at the dinner table, I wanted them to be clean. So, I boiled the rocks before adding the letters.
A circular grouping of flat stones make a natural trivet.
Nothing is more appealing to me than natural beauty.
I plan on letting each of our guests take a handful of these stones home with them as a pleasant reminder of our time together. Perhaps they will choose the letters that make up their name – or an inspiring word. I like party favors at any age – and something like this so easy to make and memorable.
