As an artist I am infatuated by all colors and patterns. Typically animal print is not my thing but I am a lover of African art and textiles.?I stopped by to visit my aunt yesterday and caught her and her neighbor in the midst of centerpiece making for an upcoming safari themed party. I of course rolled my eyes at the sight of the leopard, zebra, & tiger print adorned work room. My aunt is a table-scaping extraodinaire, she taught me how to decorate for a party when I was toddler and she of course won me over with this project (I’m even?going to try this trick with the fan in the vase with the flowers this weekend for a bridal shower). I thought I must share this today- so please welcome and thank Aunty Maureen & the lovely Mary for this week’s Workshop Wednesday!
