Simple felt flowers make an adorable place setting

Brighten up your table settings with felt flowers. In this DIY, you'll learn how to cut and glue together simple felt pieces to create flowers with stems. Then, you'll use puff paint to add each guest's name to their flower. This brings a sense of fun and lightness to your gathering and makes an excellent conversation starter.
Get creative when deciding how to seat guests at your get-together. Many hosts seat friends or family beside each other, but if you seat strangers side by side and separate the people who already know each other, then you give everyone the opportunity to get to know someone new. This is an ideal way to break the ice and get your party going.
