We had our 25th anniversary dinner last weekend so I am sharing pics of that for todays Tablescape Thursday. I used a white lace edged tablecloth, w/ a piece of silver lame used as a runner & then on top of that, layered a sheer scarf embroidered w/ silver thread. I hung pearl bead strands from the chandelier.
For the centerpiece, I used my glittered church (I've used it @ Christmas & Easter ...it is soo versatile) & a vintage bride & groom on a mirrored base. You saw the bride & groom in a recent thrift finds post. I also scattered a few "diamonds" from Hobby Lobby.
I used diamond ring key chains for napkin rings & tucked in a sprig of silk lilies of the valley. I stamped Mr & Mrs onto a battenburg lace napkin w/ fabric paint. At first, I accidentally used dimensional paint, (don't do that!) so I had to use 2 more napkins & redo it.
Love this shot! I may make a photographer yet! ;o)
Not perfect but neither am I.
LOVE this 25th anniversary apothecary jar, hubby & I bought a couple of weeks ago while 'tiking. I filled it w/ Jordan almonds but then you couldn't see the silver detail on it very well. So I moved them to a crystal bowl.
Aren't the bride & groom doves sweet?
And I LOVE this vintage cake topper! I'll treasure it always. I think it's cake topper...maybe it's just a figurine. Either way, I adore it.
Bought these paper coasters @ Tuesday Morning to go w/ the table. They came packaged like a diamond ring.
For the appetizer, we had steamed artichokes w/ butter dipping sauce & parmesan focaccia bread (we bought the bread @ Central Market & I didn't get a pic of it)
The entree was Baked Bay Scallops ......
And a Cat Cora beef tenderloin recipe (we tried Kobe beef for the first time....extremely pricey but they're right...it melts in your mouth!) w/ Corn in Browned Butter . I topped the corn w/ some parmesan.
For dessert we had Silver Glittered Wine Jelly w/ chocolate truffles (store bought). By the time, we had dessert, we had had several Flirtinis though & I didn't feel like taking pics. ;o) I was really disappointed in the wine jelly anyway. It tasted good & went perfectly w/ the truffles but I wanted it to be silver since it was our theme. The recipe calls for edible silver leaf foil but I couldn't find any @ either Michael's or Hobby Lobby so I subbed silver edible glitter & it didn't show up at all. Other than the gelatin, it was a great meal....hubby is STILL talking about Kobe beef.
Happy Tablescape Thursday everyone!
