DIY Watercolor Table Décor// Place Setting Art & Favors

For the Sage & Sparkle Brunch, one of the elements I wanted to carry throughout the tablescape was watercolor. Watercolor to me is so organic, fresh and lovely. Subtle, yet bold.  We focused on two projects which included the assistance of my pop!TOTs. Can you believe a 3 year old and a 7 year old created these beautiful pieces??!?!?

The first project was a watercolor canvas painting which was used under the clear dinner plate to add the watercolor thematic.  The artwork also served double function. Beyond adding beautiful color to the place setting, each guest was given a custom piece of artwork to take home as a favor.  The pop!TOTs  were so proud of their master pieces and our guests were equally impressed.  Let’s just say I have already commissioned my littlest pop!TOT to create a large canvas piece to sit over my sofa! Details and pictures to come of course.
