Today's TV Tuesday post by Kirsten Earl:
My dear cousin married a wonderful woman in June, and I am a procrastinator, so they still do not have a wedding gift from me and my husband (I have to admit that this, unfortunately, is not the first time the one-year rule has saved me). I managed to purchase one small item from their registry before it was completely wiped out by their many friends and family -- this set of 12 Crate & Barrel appetizer plates (right).
Clearly this is not a complete gift, but luckily I happened upon this set of 12 Crate & Barrel cocktail napkins soon after (not on their registry, but it's a new product, so I'm assuming they would have wanted them were they available at the time). I loved the variety of colors and decided I could personalize them by machine-embroidering our family monogram on them in white. Using the fantastic Pfaff Creative 2.0, I completed this project in a matter of hours! I'll present the 12 napkins and 12 plates to them this weekend with a bottle of nice champagne - a sort of cocktail party "kit" - I hope they'll be glad I procrastinated long enough to be inspired.
