Add a personal touch to your Summer table and set a dotty, fuzzy, cloudy garden party table with a couple of FAY&MAMIE kits and bits from around the house.
Dotty napkin rings
Create a set of lovely pink napkin rings with FAY&MAMIE’s MIDDAG* napkin ring kit. No sewing required! All you do is cut the ribbon in four even lengths and ‘fuse’ the ends together using the especially made fabric tape.
Here is a quick video showing you how easy the kit is to assemble:
For more details, please see How to guide.
*Midday or dinner in Danish.
Use colourful vintage glassware
A great way to add a bit of colour to your table is by using colourful vintage glassware – a lovely and typically cheap alternative to setting the table using new tableware.
Get a hold of some blue candles and paint them with cloudy patterns, this is easily done using a small round stamp rather than attempting to paint on the candle using a brush.
2-4 blue candles
Cream or white coloured non-toxic acrylic paint
Small, round stamp (approximately 5mm in diameter)
Instead of sourcing the materials yourself, consider purchasing FAY&MAMIE’s LYS* paint candles DIY kit.
What to do: See FAY&MAMIE's painted candles LYS kit how to guide:
*Candle or light in Danish.
Fuzzy table runner
Create a lovely wrinkly and fuzzy looking table runner with a piece of fabric.
A piece of fabric
Seersucker fabric is particularly good for creating a fuzzy-fluffy effect
Optional: Sewing machine & thread in matching colour
What to do
With the scissors, cut fabric so it approximately measures the length of your table x 1/3 of the width of your table
Tip: simply lay the fabric on the table and measure it that way!
Optional: finish off the edges with a zigzag stitch using your sewing machine.
Dotty candle rings
Give your candle holders a makeover by adding some dotted candle rings made with large beads.
How many? The number of beads needed, depends on the size of the beads; in this guide, seven beads measuring 1.5cm in width are used for each candle ring.
Preferably the same colours as the beads
Approximately 20cm per candle ring
What to do:
STEP 1 Cut a 20cm string
STEP 2 Thread needle and add seven beads to string
STEP 3 Tie a knot while holding the string of beads up ensuring no gaps between beads
STEP 4 Tie one more knot to tighten
STEP 5 Cut off excess string
STEP 6 To hide knot, gently push neighbouring bead over knot.
