Entertaining Women comment:
Now you need to know that I can be biit bossy. Mama used to say, "Nobody likes a bossy little girl." And I would reply, "But Mama, they'll like me.". That said, I think that you should definitely go with the white elements and those glorious hydrangeas. But how about amending it all with black charger plates and a touch of plaid ribbon in your centerpiece and as napkin rings. Black chargers can be found at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each...if you have a Hobby Lobby. All white will be gorgeous, too with silver & crystal to add a touch if shine. I'm excited to see your final result. Merry Christmas! Cherry Kay
I love bossy girls, and am one myself!
I love the classic simplicity of the black and white with accents of silver and candlelight.
Okay, I'm liking it a lot! I like the silver/grey napkins, too. I think that it's going to be a very sophisticated design, and the plaid ribbon is going to add just the right mix of masculine and whimsy that's going to make the men feel really comfortable at the table. Such fun to see the process; I'm excited to see where you go from here. A thought: pull some of the greenery into the plaid ribbon "napkin ring." Will help keep the eye moving across the design...will be a good balance technique.
How smart is she?!
Luke 2:9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
