While preparing my Memorial Day Blessings Tablescape, I pulled out my white ceramic napkin rings. Pure white looks so nice and clean. Do you agree?
To make the rings special for our occasion, they needed a little something – a little jazz.
I use Sharpie™ markers to write Bible verses and special quotes on white ceramic decorative plates from time to time. I didn’t have a red Sharpie™ handy, so I used a white-board marker.
On white board, the Vis-a-Vis wipes off easily. Consider this a test.
I didn’t have any of the marker smear as I inserted napkins or as I moved them around the table to decide on their resting spot.
When I removed the napkins for this final picture, there was still no smearing or smudging going on – just a little reflection from the ceiling lights.
But, if you for sure don’t want your guests to have a red star on their palm after removing their napkin from the ring, use a red Sharpie™. 😉
A little rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball removes either Sharpie™ or white board marker. The ceramic napkin rings are back to the fresh, white finish…and can be marked later for many different tablescapes.
This test proves more than one thing. The first is that you don’t have to use Sharpie™ markers, but it’s preferred (and I will not be compensated in any way for saying that – just my opinion).
The second thing this whole decorating-with-marker thing proves is that I draw like a third grader. Sorry, Painter Artist Mom, but I didn’t get any of your artistic ability in that area. Oh, well, God chooses only a few very patient people for that talent. 😉
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I have a question for you before you go. Do you draw like a third grader? Or am I alone here…?
