Party Recipe: Leslie's Shower

I want to bask in the success of this party just a bit more! (All photos)

















Flowers - A bunch each of white tea roses, white filler and red berries from the flower market (about $30) made two centerpieces in tomato cans, two other bouquets, and a small arrangement for the bathroom and one for the bedroom.

Table Setting - White tablecloth, vintage green napkins inherited from my grandmother, red ribbon, green carabiners, placecards, champagne saucers. I just realized I put the spoons on the wrong side of the plate, darn it.

Drinks - A strong "Leslie punch" was a hit (vodka, Limonata, Midori, lemon Perrier, blueberries) along with white wine and champagne.

Food - I probably could have gotten away with just the cold tomato soup and baked cheese sandwiches. The wasabi salmon sandwiches were also delish. The BLT's with pancetta were the least popular, but still very good. A veggie tray of jimica, carrots, radishes and cucumbers was a perfect accompaniment.

The photos are gorgeous! And I am notorious for forgetting the correct way to lay out a table, so I can't judge.

Emily, your table looks so beautiful. I have a question for you - how much of a 'drop' is there from your table to the end of your tablecloth? Patricia

Patricia - That particular tablecloth is too big for our table, so it went to the ground.
