For each napkin ring
1. Wrap the wired ribbon
around a length of dowel or paper towel tube. Fasten with a clothespin
2. Gather the
sheer wired ribbon by pulling the wire from both ends at the same time. Tie
the wire ends to the wired ribbon between the clothespin and
dowel or tube.

Decorative Luncheon Plates.
The glass plates are fun and easy to do. Place a lace doily (either cloth or
paper in the center of a clear glass plate. Arrange a few fresh or silk flowers and
leaves on top of the doily. You can also twist some ecotwist ribbon through the flowers
if you like. You can also use pressed flower stickers for the design. Add a few blades of grass for the stems. There are also some beautiful preserved flowers and flower petals in the naturals section that you can place under the clear base plate. Place another glass plate on top. The top plate should be a clearplate so your can see the pressed flowers.
Place non matching teacups (the kind you find in second hand shops) around the table and fill with fresh flowers.
For different seasons you change the look. Example in tthe fall do the same with fall colors and place autumn leaves under the plate. In the winter place evergreen and tinsel under the plate. You can also use freeze dried rose petal or silk flower heads to place under the clear base plates. (see links below)
