I bought a bunch of Tolsby frames at Ikea about a month ago, and this seemed like a good way to put them to use. I used a diagram of a boat that I found on the web, and replaced all the part names with clearer text by placing new text boxes over the names that were already there. I printed them all out on white card stock, cut out the 4 x 6 rectangles, and inserted them into the frames, after pulling the frames out of the plastic wrap, peeling two static-laden sheets of protective cellophane off both clear plastic sheets in each frame, and screwing the base of the frame on. I chose not to print in color on these because there will be flowers right next to them and the bright embroidery of the table name itself, so there will be plenty of color around to liven things up.


I hand-stitched all the table names onto muslin, and the names will be displayed in embroidery hoops on each table. One side of the frame could display the boat part info and the other side could house a nice little menu for the evening. I also added some boat-part names that weren’t on the original diagram, but were names of parts that we were using for our tables.
However, most of our guests aren’t sailors, so I wanted to give them all a little more information about boat parts, in particular, the part their table is named after.


In addition, I wanted to provide a menu on each table so guests will know what kind of barbecue deliciousness awaits them!
