*One thing I like to do is line the table with craft paper (kind you use for kids easels). This protects the table and also helps set guests at ease. They don't have to worry about drawing on or getting glue on your table. I usually use two sheets of craft paper and tuck it under the table and tape it down. You don't want it moving around when everyone is crafting.
*To cover up the seam and make things a little more festive, I like to add a runner. I've found the best thing to use for runners is wrapping paper. It's long enough for tables and comes in just about every color and print imaginable. Plus, you don't have to worry about it getting dirty. I used a cute little owl print.
*I'm the kind of person that tries to make do with what I have around the house. I used small pails to hold the pens and scissors. Let me just add that small pails are great for parties. They're perfect for holding utensils as well. To display all the tiny embellishments I used my deviled egg tray. It worked out perfect to separate all those tiny little craft supplies.

More projects from other guests. Some of the elements used for the cards were mini gift tags and clip art from The Graphics Fairy.
