Hello!!! This past Saturday night we participated in our neighborhood Progressive Dinner! It was alot of fun! We hosted one of the appetizer courses here. I confessed to Yvonne, today while we were shopping and having lunch that I shamelssly copied her idea of the white cherry blossoms for my table. It is such a beautiful and dramatic look and so simple to do.  I started with a white cut out tablecloth that I just LOVE and then used my green, white and brown Spring runner for the centerpiece. I added nests, birds etc. The square willow chareger/trays are another organic element for the table. I love LOTS of textures! My faux terrarium is in the center of the table.
 My Napolean Bee silverware was a must for this table too.

 These little bird topped cloches were found several years ago and I placed them down into a nest that sits in a glass bowl for stability.

 This was the only shot I remembered to get of Joe making the wam shrimp in a slaw that was delicious! I will share the recipe soon.
 I also made individual taco dips. I used plastic cups for easy (and quick) clean up since we had to leave to go to the next house:)
 Cucumber sandwiches are always a hit too.

 Paper plates, again for ease of clean up:)
 The bar. We also offered a drink that Joe created called a "Peachy Pink Martini" in my honor. My maiden name was Martini, so I was Pinky Martini til I got married. The drink was a big hit too, even the men liked it:)
 This is the shrimp in the warm slaw.

We had such a nice evening. Everyone who came to our house hadn't seen it yet and they all seemed to love it. This neighborhood is very unique in that there have been 3 phases and 3 different builders so there are MANY styles of homes in here. I like that alot. It does NOT look like a "cookie cutter" development at all. I hope you have enjoyed this little tour. I will share more Spring "feathering of our nest" soon. XO, Pinky
