I then planted each of the pots with a variety of herbs. Why, herbs and not flowers you may ask. I don't know. I just think I like herbs better and thought Mikey might might prefer it. (Who the heck am I kidding, he won't even notice).
The next step was to create little herb signs for each of the pots. I started with a bunch of plain wood sticks:
And with the help of some paint and a few of my stamps and ink pads, I turned them into these:
And....drumroll please, here are the finished pots:
Again...I doubt anyone will even notice these little signs in the grand scheme of things, but I like them. (Caity & Krissy will notice, but that might be because I've been talking about this for days.)
I promise to share some photos of the finished tables when they are done.
Hopefully, they will have tablecloths on them. I ordered some last week and haven't heard a thing since. Friday could mean a panic run to Bed, Bath and Beyonce for 90" round tablecloths. Keep your fingers cross that the white ones arrive on time.
UPDATE: THE TABLECLOTHS JUST CAME THIS AFTERNOON. YEAH!!
