Traveling without leaving the House

For my husband's birthday, Zachary and I created a Tour of Europe Dinner. This is the second time we did something like this, so it wasn't a huge surprise, but it is great fun. Zachary made a menu on the computer and all these little flags and he helped with the cooking.  In case you are interested in the menu, we had wine from France, Gravlax (smoked salmon) from Denmark, Belgian Endive salad, a cheese plate representing France, Netherlands, and Spain with crackers from Greece and peas for England.  The main dish was a home-made pizza representing Italy with dark chocolate fondue (Switzerland) for dessert.  Here is my layout about the dinner, you can see Zachary being the waiter with his French hand-towel. I used the paper-clip to attach the actual menu to the back of the page.

I used this sketch from Paper Secrets and the following items for the challenge: T- toothpicks, U- Uniball, L - Letters, I - ink, P- paperclip, papers, S - stitching.

Thanks for looking!
