Yes dear readers the pressure is on, with Purim rieally right around the corner, but you still gotta make your table look festive right? So how about whipping up some paper cup flag centerpieces which are really quick, look great and can be embellished however you like. Not to mention you can use them again and again for different occasions! I'll tell you a little secret, shhhhh. I actually made a few of these for my son's bar mitzvah dessert table, and have since used them for Chanukah, Tu B'Shevat, and now Purim! Yes I did in some cases add something different and taller to the center, which one certainly can for Purim, namely with a crown, or a clown or a pom pom......so let's get started!
- paper cup flags, check out my tutorial here
- small ceramic pots, mine is from Ikea
- a piece of styrofoam to fill the pot
- kosher salt
Make flags, cut a piece of styrofoam that fills the pot and is level on top. Push flags into styrofoam, and then cover with kosher salt. Ta da, looks great!
