Dare to Entertain Features + Sneak Peek!

Thanks to everyone that joined Monday's Dare to Entertain party.  There we lots of great projects this week.  I'm sharing three of my favorites.  Rachel {Maybe Matilda}, Kim {NewlyWoodwards} and Katja {Shift Ctrl Art} are sharing some of their favorites as well!

First up we have the ever crafty Amber from Wills Casa.  These hand stitched napkins are simple yet elegant. They are festive without being over the top.  A nice pairing to any table setting.  (I act like I know what I'm talking about.)  They're pretty, ok?  Also, I shall steal this tablecloth when I visit her someday.  (Invitation's still open, right?)

Cindy from Made 2 Style was in charge of her family's Thanksgiving table setting.  Who cares about turkey and pie when you're eating amongst distressed vintage crates and mood setting candles?  (Okay, I still care about the pie.  I'm only human.)

Last but not least is this woodland animal tablescape from Gretchen at Boxy Colonial.  Gretchen always has a nice mix of class and quirk.  Two qualities I also look for in blog buddies.

Next week's Dare to DIY challenge is to give handmade! The party will be over at Maybe Matilda. I'm looking forward to lots of great ideas.  And it's still early enough to complete them.  Here's a sneak peek at mine.  I think.  If it turns out.  Jury is still out.

It's going to be tough to beat last year's dog treat jar.  Ike now thinks all Dare to DIY projects should be about him.

Big weekend plans?  We're birthday partying, Christmas shopping and finishing off some decorating!  Enjoy!
