Wedding Sentiments Tabletop Design

February 3, 2010 Art of Dining No Comments

Wedding Wishes Table“Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” is the theme of this beautiful tabletop designed for the Daytona Beach Symphony Guild Art of Dining event.  Each of the 4 settings relates to each of the four good luck sayings that brides have, and a different china and flatware setting was used for each saying.  There is a massive centerpiece made like a wedding gift, with a floral arrangement of hydrangeas coming out of the top.  Of course, for practical reasons, the centerpiece is not functional for a real life seating of guests, as they would not be able to see across the table at each other for conversation.  In real world, the box and flowers would have to be adjusted in height, and/or adjusted as well as set up on a narrow pillar, as not to block the guests view.

A ribbon with each of the sayings painted on is streaming out of the gift box towards each place setting.  Each china, flatware, and crystal pattern is different, denoting the “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”.  Additional adornments include an framed wedding photo from the bride’s mother from the 50’s.  An alternative would be to place a photo of each of the bride and groom’s parents and grand- parents at the different alternating place settings.

  You have to look real close, but the gator is resting behind the sago palm and the water’s edge.  Needless to say, I too these photos from inside the house and did not go out to get a closer inspection. The Alligator Trapper caught “the big one” which was 12 foot plus.  Here he […]

Shepherd in a Manger

November 20, 2011

  Found on the Internet / Facebook: A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night, someone came across this. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there […]

Tale of the Missing Socks

September 17, 2011

My cat Penelope wears socks.  Yes, you heard correctly, socks.  She’s a little over 15 years old now and has arthritis in her back legs.  This causes her to be a little unsteady when using the litter box.  Sometimes, not always, but sometimes after she tinkles she looses her balance and steps in the clump of […]

You may […]
