You guys remember me posting about how I won a gift basket at the "Chari-tea". Well, in that gift basket was a gift certificate for a floral arrangement from "Rembrandt Floral Couture" here in Colleyville. I decided to use it for my party. Thank you Rick Wilson for helping me with this beautiful arrangement. I walked in the florist with exactly what I wanted in mind. I had a vase, pieces of driftwood and some sand that I wanted to use. This is what we came up with. I really wanted the flowers to be the focal point in the center of the table where all the salads were going to be. Putting flowers in a tall vase gives you this grandeur. I'll be ordering my flowers from Rembrandt from now on!! Inside the vase, I put a small note that said
I made cake balls for all to enjoy. Simple and easy and they look like you slaved for hours. Just place them in pretty cupcake paper and place on a silver tray. It's all about the presentation!
The great thing about my arrangement is that Rick created it it so after my party I could display it somewhere else without having it in such a big vase. It's now on my dining room table. Also, everyone bringing a salad really took the pressure off of me. I was able to enjoy the party without preparing food all night. The combination of all the salads was absolutely yummy! I think sometimes we are hesitant to have a party in our home because we feel like we are responsible to prepare it all. I think my friends would say that they don't mind bringing items. We have to make getting together easy on each other or it's never done!
Happy Summer Sista's!
