DIY Floral Plate Chargers

DIY Chargers

I am super excited to share this DIY with you today because every time I look at these in my house I am more and more obsessed.  I really love the way they turned out. They are so bright and beautiful, and they are just perfect for an outdoor garden party this summer. You might remember these from my Shutterfly Garden Party Bridal Shower. I think they totally made the shoot! The great thing about these gorgeous chargers is that you can use plastic plates and utensils and your party will still look fancy. Let's get started ... shall we?

Paint your design. I free-handed the design based off of the Shutterfly Garden Bridal Shower Invitations I used. Let the paint dry.
