Bunny Time

Some of you have asked for ideas/tips designing table settings, one of the most versitile style of dishes to have is simply white (or cream). White can be mixed with any color and look good. And of course white on white is always stunning (or cream on cream, or even mixing white with cream).
In the photo below this one is the Bridal Tea Party. To change out the look, I just removed the "bridal ladies", slid the candles over in front of each diner, and added the white bunnies to the centerpiece with a few bunched silk flowers. Just a simple change, but gives a whole new feel to the tablesetting. So if any of you have white dishes, pull them out and play around with them, look for some interesting items that can be part of your centerpiece.
Something else that looks great with the white dishes is if you have some floral dishes. Use the white dish as the dinner plate and use the floral plates as the salad dish and bread dish, pull in the colors from the floral plate for your napkins and centerpiece idea. OR you can go vis-veras, and use the floral plate as the dinner plate and the white dishes as the accents.
I hope this helps, if you have more specific questins, I will try to help there too.

Engagement Tea Party

Sorry, it has been so long since I have posted, my personal laptop has been crashed for about a week and a half! Just got it back from the Geek Squad, and it still is not right so I have to return it to them AGAIN....arghhhhh. I will try answering some of the lovely comments you all have left too, and thank you for participating in my Poll at the bottom of the page, that helps me alot. Once my lap top comes back I will start to implement your suggestions.
So I am posting on my work break to put up these tea party photos that I had participated on another Board. You will notice the napkins are missing, but it was late and I had just run out of steam. I hope you like them. I like doing "Engagement" type of things, good practice for me if/when my DD of these days.... LOL
