now that melissa has introduced me to tablescapes, hosted by between naps on the porch (her blog is beyond inspiring) i am in love, and already feel an addiction coming on. so, i was hosting a girls night, and figured what better time to try out my first tablescape.
the colors black, yellow, and white immediately came to mind..
i instantly thought of black square plates, and was delighted when i found the perfect plates and bowls at world market.
i love anything polka dot! i have had these placemats for a little while now, and had yet to use them. they were perfect.
izze drinks are not only one of my favorite drinks, but who knew they would also make the perfect accessory?! haha
fondue fork wrapped on top of a napkin with white tulle
i love ribbon, and love any opportunity to incorporate it...so i wrapped some bows around the glasses...
made simple yellow place cards
put some yellow and white flowers (i found at joann) in mason jars, filled with black and white striped tissue paper and tied with a little yellow ribbon.
i found the white daisy with the placemats at homegoods
this was the great cookbook we used for our fondue
sun went down..time to light the candles
here's a few pics of our fondue..we had two bowls of different chocolates, and one big cheese bowl...with all the different dippings our hearts desired :)
melissa made these delicious salads..and yes, they tasted as good as they looked! maybe i can convince her to post a recipe on her blog ;)
a toast to great friends!
decorating + fondue (yummy food) + great friends and conversation = the best girls night!
