Bridesmaids' Supper




Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen is hosting Let There Be White, Part II, featuring all white tablescapes. I'm also linking to Susan's blog, Between Naps on the Porch, for Tablescape Thursday. Please visit both these lovely ladies' blogs for lot of tablescaping inspiration.

~~~

Since this is an all-white table, it got me to thinking about weddings, so I thought I would do the table as a bridesmaids' supper, a last night alone with the girls before the big day...



These cute little bells came from Dollar Tree...


Hydrangeas, one of my favorites, and always appropriate for weddings...


Linen napkins embroidered with the bride-to-be's new initial.


I used Heisey sherbets in the Orchid pattern.


These cute little placecard holders feature a heart on the front, and they're also little vases. I just put faux daisies in them this time.

This little candleholder came from Colonial Candle. They feature them on their Website as being great for centerpieces for a wedding reception. You can find them HERE.



I love the soft glow of the table as evening falls...
