This weekend we had a couple of friends over...
Inspired by the Oscar colors of gold and black I created this Table Couture by sewing this beautiful sparkling black tablecloth.
This fabric isn’t usually used as a tablecloth yet I love using non-traditional fabrics and use them as beautiful palettes for my tables (a little secret; so many friends are convincing me to start selling them!!)
The branch was found near my house and painted in gold spray paint. I just fell in love with the way it arches in a natural way don’t you? The beautiful roses are from my garden and the menu……ahhh it was exquisite!
Keep in mind that the concept of the dinner was an Oscar wine party, hence the combination of raw materials found in nature with a little Oscar touch by combing the glamourous black and gold!! I think that combing non related objects and materials creates a look that is fresh and effortless, just like saying "oh, i just through this dress on and left the house!"
The first course (in pic): 3 Hour tomato salad bliss (recipe in previous posts) served with a spicy beef Moroccan cigar!
Main course: Lamb in a red wine & vegetable roots sauce served with wild rice and mashed sweet potatoes!!!
Dessert: chocolate mouse topped with sugar covered pecans served with refreshing mint tea.
Enjoy and tell me what you think good or bad....
