In the case that you can’t use real silverware, whether it’s because of the cost or the inconvenience, you don’t have to give up on a cute table setting. For our champagne showers brunch we came up with this easy DIY that was both affordable and matched our pink and gold decor. The great thing about this project is that you can use any color to go with anything!
plastic silverware (we used the kind that looks like real silver)
spray paint (we used metallic gold)
drop cloth or newspaper
Hold the handle of the plasticware away from you and spray the bottom with a light coat of paint on both sides. Leave to dry and then apply a second coat. If you want, you can create an ombre effect as well. Make sure to avoid getting any paint near the top of the silverware. Once completely dry, wash your plasticware with soap and air dry.
