Dinner is Served

Hosted a soiree for my garden club fundraiser auction winners. 
Lovely group purchased the dinner.
Fun was had by all! 

Aren't the rosette napkins about the cutest thing you have ever seen??? Go Christi! How to here.
Vintage valentines were the centerpiece for the placecards. Again, Christi.
China is courtesy of my relative, Laura.

The house was glowing with the homefires burning.

The ladies regaled in our "Paris at Night" theme! Many thanks to this lovely group for generously supporting our garden club efforts & helping our projects to bloom.

Robbie, Mic & Betsy Tom showing off their festive Parisienne garb.

 Chef Paris Mishoe knocked a home run with his "over the top" menu. The guest were "gaga" over the delicious courses.  The meal was truly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!! Wine pairings were exceptional from Wine Authority. Our sommelier Mic did a wonderful job choosing the pairings  & entertaining the ladies with information on each wine.

Let's get this party started! Southern Baby BLT's kicked things off.

Tuna Tini's were the bomb!

Flowers were ridiculously awesome. As always Flowers by Lisa with her side kick Betsy Tom. They were positively breathtaking.

My "flying nun" light fixture always gets the conversation going....

Guest went home with a sweetheart rose nosegay & their vintage valentine placecard.

With heartfelt thanks to Paris, Robbie, Mic, Betsy Tom, Lisa, Robin & Christi.

Christmas is Something More

When you have a December birthday you can sometimes get the "short end of the stick." Not the case for my Mother. This year proved to be a stellar event. Petals by Powell floral arrangements were off the chain. Don't believe me??? Just see for yourself! She does weddings, funerals & private events... by appointment only....

And then there was the star herself & her sidekick.....

Def these memories did not come from a store!

Thanksgiving Poinsettia... Who Knew???

It's called "gold rush" and has just the right amount of warmth for
a Thanksgiving setting. So unusual; it just fit right in nestled in with my glass pumpkin collection.

Flamingo Affair

Had a little "Flamingo Fling" for a friend. 
The flowers were "off the chain" and wanted to share.

While "Flowers by Lisa" is not a real business thinking for sure it should be. The gal's got talent! As we say she might not cook but she shore has a flair with flowers.
She out did herself & these centerpieces.... well what can I say other than......

As you can imagine the raves just kept coming!!!

The flowers seen here (above & below) all came from my sweet Mama's yard.

Now I have been known to run a theme into the ground from time to time but this time I think we got it just right!
