is pleased to present:

"Picnic Paraphernalia"
Design Studio

Saturday, May 24, 2014
Beginning at 12 p.m.


Producing a beautiful picnic or table setting requires the correct paraphernalia.  Tablecloth and placemats, napkins and napkin rings can be made in colour schemes that will beautifully coordinate or contrast with your dishes, glassware, and cutlery.  Lacy doilies weighted down with beads will keep leaves and insects out of your drinks. 

To transport your precious china and glassware safely to and from the event, padded bags and cozies complete with padded discs to insert between plates can be constructed.  A padded holder will protect your cutlery.  A pretty cloth bag will ensure that your delicious food arrives intact.  Modern coolers donít enhance a lovely period atmosphere but a padded cozy will insulate and disguise your cooler so it blends in.  Colourful chair covers or padded cushions can be constructed as well.

To aid you in creating these items, we will hold a workshop where you can create each of these items for all of your future picnic and potluck needs!

Our instructor for this Design Studio is none
other than the talented and well respected
SITU Workshop Coordinator, Miss Karen!

She will be presenting various creative ideas
to consider and use to make beautiful picnic
paraphernalia to compliment your style.
