Do you know about erosion cloth???

We seem to constantly be giving parties of one sort or the other: wedding showers, rehearsal dinners, baby showers etc. etc.

Therefore, we (my neighborhood  party elves) are always on the lookout for new and different ideas.

Yes, we love Pinterest.

But this erosion cloth has our little brains buzzing!!!

 

It looks like something Peter would have used as a fisherman’s net. It is a fabulous texture and color and will allow you to morph it into just about any shape.

You can stretch a hole in it so that candles sit flat on the table without rocking.

 

Then you can pull it and the hole will heal itself. It’s just great.

HOWEVER!! You must plan ahead. The reason it is called erosion cloth is because it is used in

landscaping to prevent…. erosion. It is treated with some sort of oil. Therefore it has a really

“unique” smell. Something akin to burlap + motor oil. I know…

We left it outside for 4 days before the party to air out and it was fine after that but you don’t want to be closed up in a car with it for too long. haha

 

 

 You could make it as elegant or rustic as you want.

We can’t wait to have a barn party and use it for drapery on a bamboo pole.

 This time we went with a boot scootin’ barbeque theme that included everyone’s favorite pulled pork BBQ, baked beans, coleslaw and bread.

Along with beverages of the adult variety there was homemade lemonade, and refreshing lime water.

Then we get to the fun category… dessert!

Neighbor Gayle came through in a big way with these adorable cookies

 and THIS

 individual Paula Dean banana puddings. She was really showing out and we were glad.

 

 A fun time was had by all. Go get you some erosion cloth and let me know how you decide to use it.

Do you like my new find?
