We had a dinner party the other night and we thought it would be fun to have an exotic animal dinner party. Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my!
Liz from Infuse With Liz, do you remember sending me these leopard print curtains?
I used them for the center of the table,along with our cool monkey lamp.
I recently ordered a few things for Halloween at Pier 1 to pick up the other day. My husband went with me because we were dropping off our previous cook top and windows at
Foothills Habitat for Humanity.We both went into Pier1 and ended up browsing around. My husband found the leopard print glasses, cocktail shaker and the gorgeous wooden bowl and platter.
Hawthorn Wood bowl and platter from Pier1.
One of our guests made a comment to my husband, she could be his second wife,
after looking around at our decor and hearing the story of my husband picking out the glasses, cocktail shaker and wooden bowl and platter....LOL
I happened to have the grape leaves salad server, which matches perfectly.
The menu was: Braised Short Ribs - Mashed Potatoes - Gravy
Roasted Brussel Spouts, Pear, Walnut Salad with Gorgonzola - Leaf cut-out bread
and Carrot Cake.
