Carmen and I added little wire spirals to ours. Nice for holding a photo or a placecard. I still need to add some fabric to the empty spools. My favorite is the itty bitty yellow spool. Also, we didn't have wooden spools which is what Cassi used. Also, I didn't have floral tape and stupid Walmart was out so I bought a roll of green crepe paper which I ended up liking better. The color is a brighter green so it has a more cute cottage-y look.
The sad part is that my little elves are not as eager as they used to be for crafting with Mom. Carmen was gracious, Max was fairly willing, but easily distracted and Eric pretty much had to be bribed with chocolate. *sigh* Well, that's the way of it, I suppose. I sure am going to enjoy having grandchildren!
