Summer is in full swing here. Lots of camping, parties and BBQs. I hope you are enjoying lots of the same. That is probably my absolute favorite thing about summer, even more than the pool (but make it a pool & BBQ party and I am in heaven). I love every excuse to gather with friends and enjoy a meal in the warm evening. If you have a party coming up, you have the check out this easy 10 minute DIY dish decoration hack to make your dishes more festive!
There is just something about festive dishes that makes parties more fun. I hope I’m not the only one that thinks this. And I swear the kids eat more vegetables when they are served on a fun decorative tray. But I do not have room in my kitchen for lots of decorative dishes and trays. If I did, you better believe I would have some for every holiday and season, and a few for in between.
Instead I decided to find a way to make dish decorations that could be switched out for the occasion. Seriously, how much better is it to stock your cabinets with plain white dishes, then decorate them up for whatever theme you want before filling them with your favorite treat? Even better if it only takes 10 minutes to make? Well this 10 minute DIY dish decoration hack will have you ready to party in no time.
To make this hack even faster, I reached for my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine. I am not a card-maker, but I love all the different ways I am able to use the die cutter. From art to storage, decor to organization, I have used my Platinum 6 for so many fun things. And it is super quick to pull it out for a 10 minute craft.
Using some etched dies that made me think of summer, I was able to quickly cut out vinyl to decorate my plain white serving dishes. I used tropical flamingos to decorate a bowl and plate for hummus with vegetables. Then I couldn’t pass up a chance to add a cactus and southwest decor to another bowl and plate for some delicious guacamole. They are so fun and festive! Perfect for a summer BBQ.
But this awesome DIY dish decoration hack will work for any season or event! There are so so so many etched dies to choose from. Think balloons for birthdays, snowflakes for winter, animals for baby showers, and everything in between. I can’t wait to decorate every dish around!
