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:

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
You can get all of the above if you purchase FAY&MAMIE’s GREN* kit.
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.
