Hosting a dinner party can be as easy or involved as you want it to be. This one leans more towards being involved but the finished result most definitely will put you in the running for hosting Queen. I think it’s a nice touch to use place settings because it makes your guests feel super special and it let’s you have some fun if you like to play matchmaker in addition to hostess (*wink wink). This DIY Personalized Clay Dish Place Setting is a great touch for your next dinner party table.
This project is for someone who really loves to make crafts as well as food and really enjoys the process of preparing and setting a beautiful table for their dinner party. If that’s not you, that’s totally cool! Casual family-style is awesome too and doesn’t make you any less of a hostess because we all know that good company & food (and wine) is what trumps everything when it comes to a great dinner party.
BUT if you’re the hosting Queen type then you’re going to be all over this. You need to give yourself at least 2 days for this project because of the drying time. I say you grab yourself a few bottles of Kendall Jackson Wine and make a fun mini-craft night of it with your BFF or the kiddos.
All you need is some air dry clay, some stamps and simple acrylic paint. You can find all the instructions for this DIY clay dish including step-by-step images over on the Kendall Jackson Wine blog. Not only will your guests know where to sit (avoiding utter chaos) but you and your dinner party will literally be unforgettable with this sweet little personalized take-home token.
