I knew that I had plenty of cut glass items to use as serving pieces , and a friend offered up her extensive collection. This will be a breeze. My color inspiration came from the bridesmaid's dresses (pink) and also the paper that I chose for the invitations. I draped my tables in simple white linen clothes topped with some sparkly organza fabric for a bit of glamour.
I chose to use my favorite white dishes, accenting them with magenta napkins. My shiny Romantika (Crate & Barrel, early 90's) water goblets and wine glasses added a touch of color.
For the centerpiece, a used these shiny gold and magenta branches (from the holiday collection this past season at Target) tucked into a simple white vase.
I wrapped the gorgeous paper from the invitations (Paper Source) around small clear glass votives. Cute, and so simple.
Oh the fun I had sourcing the party favors for the guests. I explored the many antique stores in my area...
...and found a unique little piece of crystal for each lady to take home.
One was lovelier than the next.
Wishing Crystal a lifetime of happiness. She deserves it.
