On Saturday night we hosted an Italian dinner party. To set the table I started with a red and white check tablecloth. For the centerpiece I used assorted "Italian" style cans, filled them with sunflowers, red poppies and loafs of bread. I also scattered other cans through out the table with bread sticks in them, had grapes in the wine glasses, red votives, red and clear swirled water glasses and I used green metal wall hangings (from Hobby Lobby) for the placemats.
To set the stage once the guests arrived I had some Italian music in the background, Chianti ready to be served and the smell of Italian cooking in the air. The final element needed to make it a memorable night - good friends!
Wishing you peace, love and a little pixie dust
