Reader dyp sent me this simple idea that her mother used to dress up some plastic flatware for a family holiday party.

Dyp says:

Last year for Thanksgiving my sister forced my mother to use * Gasp* disposable flatware for dinner. My mother, not one to under-do any event, surprised us all with this EXTREMELY simple flatware embellishment. Literally people talked about the spoons for the majority of the meal; people took the spoons home instead of doggy-bags. I wish I was joking, but I am not.

She used one pack of ornament hooks, some plastic spoons… and voila…

I told mom I was going to send this to your blog, she thought I was bluffing ;)

Project Estimate:

  • Package of plastic spoons, $1
  • Package of ornament hooks, $1

Total cost: $2
