I love the look of a table skirt on a table for entertaining. It gives the table more depth and style compared to a plain table cloth. I was at Party City one day I saw that they had table skirts, but they were made out of plastic, more of a throw away item. It got me thinking how I would love a table skirt made out of fabric that I could use over and over again. But how would I attach the table skirt to the table and still be able to put a separate table cloth on the top? I know they make table skirt clips, but I wanted something that was seamless looking. Then an idea hit me, magnetic adhesive strips might work if I put them on both the table skirt fabric and the actual table.
With these supplies in hand I started my project
I happened to see these ruffled bed skirts on 4 Men and 1 Lady‘s Joss and Main curator collection and instantly knew they would be perfect for a ruffled table skirt. They were exactly what I needed to try out my magnetic idea. So I ordered two in the king size.
I took apart the two 15″ ruffled bed skirts and sewed them together to make a 30″ x 17′ long ruffle panel. My finished ruffled skirt was heavy, I was afraid that the weight of the fabric would be too much for the magnetic strip to stay in place. So I decided on a whim to staple the magnetic tape directly to the table

I had a Pinterest Patriotic fest this weekend. I may pin a lot, but I also do
sometimes make things I pin. This round I made all things Patriotic for our Memorial Day BBQ. All recipes and links can be found on my 4th of July board here
I love all things jello. Must be something from my childhood. I improvised on the white filling than what the recipe called for. I added about 8 ounces of cream cheese to the cool whip, 1/4 c of white sugar and a dash of vanilla. Then I mixed it with my hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
I was on a roll making mini desserts.
Some of my mini cheesecakes caved in the middle so I added some cherry pie filling to the the top
I found that the lattice tops were harder to do on the apple pies, so I only did half that way
I also made fruit salsa, but I probably won’t make it again. The fruit gets all soggy and not so fresh looking very fast.
I really just wanted to try the new spoon maker kit I got to dip the salsa
