Our son Ben recently returned from a six month stay in Israel followed by a month of traveling in Europe. With the kitchen finally done it seemed like a good time to get together with family and celebrate his return with a welcome home brunch.
A large laminated map of Israel becomes the perfect table runner--spills can easily wipe off. And, the elongated shape of Israel lends itself perfectly to a rectangular table!
Each muffin got a flag representing a country that Ben visited.
The flags were printed out from the internet, cut with scissors and glued onto a toothpick.
For the napkin rings, I made color copies of Ben's passport...
cut them into strips and taped into rings.
Can't wait for the family to come next week!
