Our menus are always a big secret, but this year all three of us chose a tropical/beachy theme and menu...crazy coincidence. The photo below is of Karen's table, it was so much fun...she said the pots of grass were her starting point and she went from there. Lots of beach glass, driftwood, seashells - all down the length of the table....absolutely charming.
Tami set hers up under a tent on her patio...the dessert house is always "all about the lighting"...and this was so cool. She used a lamp from her bedroom as the centerpiece, it made for such a romantic setting. Sorry about the photo quality, I'm bummed I didn't get better shots at her house, I kept trying and failing..fooey.
Check out the menu for dessert at Fred and Tami's, she had it set up on a little corner shelf in the tent - each corner held photos of past garden parties. This photo is from the first year...I think that was 2002. The menus at Mark and Karen's house were set into scallop shells at each place setting - what a great idea..I tell ya, these girls are like idea machines...sheesh...if I didn't like them so much I would be intimidated.
