Creative Table Settings. Place mats made of Food!

I was totally wowed by award winning Chef Debra Desaulniers in 2000 when I attended an event where she had designed place mats out of pasta, beans, and candy.  I’ve always remembered that great idea so at a recent dinner party decided to give it a go.  Organic (not that it matters) split green peas!  Take a look at the finished table.

Afterwards, have a contest for your guests to create the best design based on a theme.  All four of these are winners!!

When you’re done, simply store the peas in a container for your next party! Or, rinse and cook until done.   Experiment with all kinds of objects for your creative table top design.  (designs by Troy.)
