Decor on a shoestring budget


I helped a fellow mum with the table settings for a School Fundraiser located in the school hall. The budget was $150 for 13 tables. The inspiration came from Magnolia's Square's exquisite styling. We bought striped material from Spotlight for $10 metre. Scissors Paper Cake bottles and bottles/jars collected by mum's for centrepieces and filled them with single stem flowers. The 'sweets' table also had the same fabric as a tablecloth, Kraft wrapping paper was used to cover the not-so-pretty wall and paper doilies taped together for paper prettiness. Discarded tomato pasta sauce jars covered in Kraft and tied with twine created inexpensive vases. Best of all the night was a huge success!
