I created place cards with a picture of us from 30 years ago and put the menu inside. She loves these Pottery Barn plates with yesteryear letters embossed on them. Fiddle head napkins accompanied.
Otherwise, the festive table was mostly orange and green with a few other friends scattered about.
Pugs in the form of salt and pepper shakers!
Behold the centerpiece! A set of serving trays with a fine giraffe stretched across found companions such as some Meyer lemons and an artichoke!
