HI Everyone. 9/11 will always be a different kind of day for us because last year on this date my daughter was married. It was a beautiful, perfect day! But we will ALWAYS REMEMBER the awful day that was 9/11/01. Last night we had a little dinner party for our daughter and son-in-law for their first anniversary! We had the same menu that we had at the reception: crab cakes and filets. We served the filets with a Madeira sause and a peppercorn sauce. We also had holiday potatoes, and confetti corn, rolls, and some good wine! My daughter loved the table!!!!! I was so happy! She said she loved the green and black. The centerpiece is a combination of real and faux hydrangeas!!!!! Can you tell???? My hydrangeas are all green now so I added some faux white ones! They are in a footed,glass trifle bowl.

 I used black wine glasses and green water goblets.

 I used a green tablecloth, a black placemat, the white charger, green dinner plate, black and white salad/dessert plate and a faux artichoke votive holder to top off the stack!
 A beautifully printed black and white napkin is folded very simply. I also used my Napolean Bee flatware that I adore!!!!
 I found these pillar candles at Pier One a couple of months ago and got them with this table in mind. The candle sticks are new recently. I got them for fall as I love the leaf design carved into them!

 Here is the dessert plate. I found these at Home Goods several months ago.

 2 black gravy boats were used for the sauces. I will share the recipes in a later post if you would like them.

 I sure will miss my hydrangeas when the frost comes:(

 I used 2 different sets of S and P. These are shaped like a pagoda, you know my love for anything oriental!!!!
 These are cabbage S and P.

 I thought I would take a few shots of the room, since I will be changing out the summer decor starting TOMORROW:):)

 Now it is time to light the candles!!!

 I am sorry I didn't get pictures of our meal. It is always a rush to get everything timed to come out HOT together and everyone to the table!
 Here are the happy couple!!!!! They are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 We do have their top layer of their wedding cake in the freezer but the bakery gave them this anniversary cake for free!!!! It was part of the package, they said! It is just like the wedding cake was: chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse filling and fudge frosting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH HONEY, it was so dang good!!!!! Everyone at the wedding said it was the best wedding cake they had ever tasted!!!!
 How did the baker know that I was planning a green and white table!!!! I was so thrilled when I saw how they had decorated it!
 This was my piece and I ate every crumb!!!!!:):)
 Happy Anniversary Tracy and Dave. We wish you all the happiness in the world forever!!!!  I love you both!!!!! XO, Pinky
