Double Post: Tablescape Thursday and Foodie Friday...June Wedding


Welcome to Tablescape Thursday and Foodie Friday. Please visit our gracious hostesses Susan and Michael to see more participants in these events.


This week's Foodie Friday's theme is June weddings. And how nice was it of my friends Debbie and Sid to accommodate me and have a June wedding? LOL!

This is a second marriage for both Debbie and Sid, so they wanted to do something small and casual. And since they're going to be honeymooning in the Bahamas, they went with a tropical theme. The wedding and reception took place on Debbie's sister's back patio.

I had seen a post on Kathleen Ellis' wonderful blog about floating tables, and thought it would make a neat cake table for the wedding. I brought my bistro table from my garden and covered it in a white cloth. Next I placed six clear votive cups upside down around the table (these will end up being the support for the glass). Then I put a strand of icicle lights all around the table top and votive cups. Next comes the glass, and voila! You have a floating table!

The cake was so cute, and the little adirondack chairs were edible!

The lady that made the cake also made these yummy little palm tree shaped cookies.

Here are the food tables. Debbie's sisters did most of the food. I brought shrimp ceviche, but didn't think to get a closeup picture of it. You can kind of see my shell-shaped bowl that I used.

And here's the happy couple. Congratulations, Debbie and Sid! May you have many happy years together!
