Calligraphy and Christmas

With this new post i’ll show you how to use Calligraphy for Christmas.

Since last year I became more confident with brush pens and other writing instruments, that’s why i choosed to insert Calligrahy for my last Christmas table setting.

The idea is simple but spectacular!

To make it you need cheep tools:

  • plastic sheets
  • a permanet black pen/brush

  1. Just cut the plastic sheet in a roud shape with the same dimension of the plate of your table setting.
  2. Write on the round shape using your best calligraphy as in the following pictures.
  3. Just place the round shapes on the appetizer plates.

For Christmas is perfect to write greetings as I did.

I choosed for my Christmas table setting different languages to honor my guests coming from Spain.

Here following are more pictures of my special Calligraphy table setting. I know i still have to learn and improve my self with handlettering and calligraphy, but i think the result of this table setting  is gorgeous! What i I like the most is the shadow that words creates on plates. Isn’t it nice?

Was your Christmas “Merry and Bright”? Well,  mine was creative and tasty too…gnam!

ps. The idea for this project is new and is “totally” born from my creativity. Please feel free to share it or copy it, but please don’t forget to tag my blog or my original post too.

Thank you 😀

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Juicy loves Juice

Did you read my last post about DIY drink coasters and a special summer Juice?

If not …well it’s time to “fix” your lack ;).

Here you can find my DIY post where i explain how to create the FAB drink coasters in the pictures above, made from an Escher drawing.

Do you like this project?

You still can use them on your table and enjoy with a sweet juice and your friends.

Summer in Rome is very hot, if you can’t go to the beach the best solution is to drink a cold juice on a terrace.

The Juice in the picture is a very simple making Grapefruit Juice made with a juice extractor.   

This Grapefruit Juice recipe is very simple, you only need:

  • grapefruit and cucumbers, mint with some added ginger and mint leaves. The cucumber is perfect ’cause gives hydration to carry you through the sweltering heat.

Here you can find another Juice recipe idea based with oranges and apples , perfect for summer time, Check it!

And even if my holidays are gone…i think Summer is a state of mind.

Centrifuga: Opera Prima

SIGNORI E SIGNORI vi presento il mio POST N#1 ovvero

“Centrifuga tutto quello che hai in casa”.

EMOZIONE!

Ho pensato e ripensato a quale sarebbe stato il post migliore da presentare , alla fine la scelta è stata quasi scontata ed in tema con il nome del mio blog JUICY. Ecco a voi una ricetta succosissima.

Sembra un banale succo di frutta ma è una Centrifuga con la “Ci” maiusola e potete stare tranquilli, piacerà a tutti per la sua semplicità. Della serie “Ti piace vincere facile“! Le dosi che vi consiglio nella foto qui di seguito sono per due bicchieroni.

Procedimento: scegliete frutta fotogenica lavatela e  disponetela con armonia su un canovaccio pulito…prendete la Reflex di vostro marito ed iniziate a fotografare, meglio se in un posto luminoso, io ho scelto il terrazzo di casa e per fare questa foto sono salita su una sedia. OPS!
