River Rock Paperweights

Introduction

Pretty paper goods are no match for an unruly summer breeze at an outdoor party. River rocks (available by the bag at garden centers) help keep plates and napkins where they belong, even after they've left the serving table. Pile them in a bucket on the buffet table for guests to grab along with their utensils; you'll avoid having to chase flyaways.

    I took a white paint pen (You can find them in your local craft store, usually the same store that carries river rocks) and painted inspirational things on black river rocks (Love, Peace, Harmony, Laughter etc) and I use those for weights!

    Hi, I have a whole bunch of river rocks that I intended to paint a little something on them....What a great idea for a outdoor picnic. I still might paint a bug or other pest on them....Cleo
