A few words about the table, Martha Stewart placemats and napkins from her inaugural line @KMart!  I know…who would have ever guessed!  Probably 20 years old already!

The shrimp cocktail service pieces are antique pressed crackle glass sherbets with cookie plates beneath.  Salts are etched w/flower motif.  Napkin rings Onyx Quartz from our first cruise purchased in Jamaica or Cozumel.  Artichoke tea light candles from Crate & Barrel’s Spring 2013 collection.  Water Glasses–last two from set of eight purchased at Anthropologie, they are hand cut, however the cuts were so deep that we broke 6 simply by dropping ice cubes into them!  Working hard to preserve these last  two!  Wine glasses Spiegelau Vino Grande White and Vino Grande Burgundy.  Flatware Community Plate Coronation.  China Studio Nova Bamboo and charger was from our silver rimmed buffet plates.

Had much of the menu on hand, so was happy to make use of those items just adding the fresh Asparagus, Potatoes, Tomatoes and Salad Greens.  And the purchased desserts were last minute decision based on lack of timing!

We had a very enjoyable evening, we frequently go out for our Anniversary but this year realized that at home we can eat leisurely, choose our own playlist and pace the courses to our pleasure, cooking and plating as we went along!  It was quite enjoyable and of course who else to share it with but my best friend, soulmate and the Mother and Grandmother of my Children and Grandsons!

Eat Well….Be Well!
