The tables were set with hand stamped items and I decided to try limit as many disposables as possible. The room looked natural and calming with a monochromatic look.
Here are the things I used:
Flour bags did have a plastic bag (ziplock type)inside with the pre measured flour inside. The bags were from here and I stamped them with a black fabric ink pad from here and letter stamps from here on this. You will also need the base to stick the stamps onto, which is from here Â (This allows you to easily spell words you wish to stamp).
The sugar bags were these and were also stamped using a different typeface stamp. The sugar was pre measured into a glassine packet and folded neatly and tucked inside. (choose a small size like 2.5 x 6.25).
The mini glasses were used to check the eggs and were from here.
The wooden spoons from here, were tucked into the apron pocket which was from here. (The color I chose was light taupe). In addition, I tucked in a pair of disposable gloves and the packet of yeast. The aprons were hand stamped with a personalized stamp I made from hereÂ Â (the size was 4×4)I used a fabric stamp pad and used an iron to set each one so they could be washed.
I also stamped flour sack cloths which were used to cover the dough when it was rising and it was also a take home gift. The flour sacks are from hereÂ (size 13″ x 13″) and stamped the same as the aprons.
(The bowls were borrowed from a fellow shlucha).
What is really nice about this set up is that I can re use many of the items. So if you have a smaller group (I had 60 guests) although there is much work involved, you can easily do this event with less preparation the next time.
(Next post will be center pieces!)
