**Update: The "crayola" next to each place was a party favor. It is a very flat pen that can be left inside a book for making notes. I keep mine in our current cookbook as we always pull out our books at Cooking Club during dessert and jot down comments about that month's recipes.**
In November 2008 my Cooking Club met at my highly creative friend Ellen's house. She had such a clever table setting, but I neglected to bring my camera to the gathering and I only recently got these pictures from her. I thought you would enjoy seeing them even though it's well past Thanksgiving now.
For this darling cornucopia at the top of each placemat, Ellen steamed the end of an ice cream sugar cone to bend it, then dipped the opposite end in melted white chocolate and crushed pistachios before spilling multi-colored jellybeans from the opening. I believe she credited Martha Stewart for the original idea

Seventeen and Spring Break!
