I have one of those GIANT Wilton tips and it just comes out this way when you start from the middle and swirl around to the outside. I bought it {and a giant coupler} at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

NICE!! You made the paper plate setting look so formal! Totally going to borrow some of your entertaining ideas. Where did you get the place cards for food items?

Michelle said...

Hi Freedom, I made the cards for the food items. Just a pretty font and brown kraft paper from the scrapbooking aisle! You can totally do that!
