For The Tables
- You might be able to come up with some 'slipper' knick knacks made of porcelain.
- An alternative to 'real' shoes are the princess shoes for little girls in the toy department. They are reasonably priced. (Can sometimes find at $stores)
- Check with a local shoe store to see if they have any shoe store 'shopping bags', the type with handles or use shoe boxes and fill with flowers and greenery trailing out to make a nice arrangement.
- Shoe Display - Make a display with lots of shoe store shopping bags, shoe boxes, and a variety of shoes. Use the boxes as levels, placing all different ways to create some interest with the bags and shoes added in at all angles. Use everything from baby shoes up to large men's boots for a variety. Add in some trailing vines or greenery.
