My girlfriends' daughter was married last Friday, her wedding theme was Woodland. I helped make the table arrangements,(another of my very favorite things to do).
Father of the bride cut a white birch tree off their property. Cut it up into 25 sections and hollowed them out.
We added plastic containers and floral foam in each, then filled them with greens from the Groom to be woods.
We also made some with artificial greens so they could keep them long afterwards.
All the arrangements were finished with glass bead picks and lots of silver Ting-Ting.
This was the guest book at the entrance. A wonderful slab of wood, later to be made into a coffee table.
The cake table was fill with antique and vintage glass cake stands. The cakes had edible crystal glitter on top looking like snow.
OK, this was New Years Eve with my family. When my husband and I were married in the 70's we received a fondue pot as a gift. (see the red one there, still heating). We've spent many New Years Eve enjoying it, taking them with us as we traveled to the kids homes in Miami and Jacksonville, Florida, and back home again. We now have quite a collection of them I think 7. We always have steak and shrimp to dip in the hot peanut oil. Then one pot with Velvetta cheese for the kids and another with gourmet cheese for the adults which we dip steamed broccoli.
