July flew by! Last weekend I chaired a dinner dance for the beach community where I live.
I found these sailboats on clearance at Christmas Tree Shops. And metamorphed them into centerpieces.
I filled them with oasis and stuffed hydrangeas from my garden in them.
I got 8 of them, just what I needed for the tables.
Set on a mirror with shells scattered, they were perfect. I used washable marker for the table number, so I can use them again.
A scallop shell held sea blue kisses for the guests.
The cost of the centerpieces? .70 cents! I think that qualifies for Thrifty!
These are some of the other items I got for 90 % off the other day at CTS.
The polka dot casseroles were .59, the larger blue was .99. They were all in perfect condition.
The white ribbed rectangular were .20, the apple casseroles were .29 and .39.
Glass compotes were NINE cents. I had 4 so added 2 more.
Orange glasses .22, candle holders .39, covered ramekins .16. The large aqua hurricane was 1.29!
Last night a group of us had an anniversary party for dear friends. I was assigned desserts.
The wedding cake...
I did half with chocolate filling, half cherry and iced with whipped cream.
Chocolate cake, filled with chocolate and iced in chocolate. A votive serves as a vase for the flowers.
I made a Lemon Pound cake in the Heritage Pan, and served it with blueberry sauce. Forgot to take a pic, but I will be making it again soon.
And a simple plum cake for those who like something lighter.
Dh is enjoying some of the leftovers tonight!
Thanks for stopping by!Tabletop Tuesday.
My thanks to all the hostesses!
