Anyone who entertains knows that its not always so easy but we always want to make it look that way.
After years of having guests over for holidays, and special occasions, I definitely know that my parties come together a lot easier these days. My biggest challenge is always creating something new and exciting for my guests.
The most recent party in my home was a collaborative effort. My mother in law wanted to celebrate the birth of her new grand daughter . I set up the flowers and the table decor, and my mom cooked the food.
Now you must know that the last party I did in my home I covered my entire table with grass and had very tall vases with orchids dripping out of the sides. So I knew I had to come up with something that would at least compare to last time.
The only difference was that now I had about 2 days to prepare, so I really needed to really put my thinking cap on. Here’s what I came up with………
I had my local mirror guy use my table pads as a template to cut the mirror and also cut some mirrored squares to serve the mazza (Syrian appetizers) on. All of the other serving pieces are the platinum Annie Glass mixed with Michael Aram platters. To add height and dimension, I used glass cube vases to prop up the serving platters. I poured pink jelly beans into the glass cubes to add the sweet softness to the table- after all the party was in honor of a baby girl.
The only thing missing was a spectacular centerpiece to really make the table pop, and the pink amarillo lillies really did the trick!
