I had never seen anything like them before and am always thrilled to find something truly unique and clever. They can be filled again with anything you like, perhaps water with mint, a vodka infusion, or you can just group a trio as is on a bar for conversation sake. Cheers!

How to: Dress your Holiday Table

dress your holiday table


Some years ago I attended a fabulous outdoor wedding in the foothills of Yosemite National Park where one’s place at table was noted by name written on a rock!  I loved my rock place holder and still have it.  I decided to employ this idea to mark the guest places at my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary luncheon.  

I needed a number of small rocks so scampered down to Miramar beach to gather the stones and only as doing so realized how perfectly appropriate it was that the rocks were from that beach as this is where they honeymooned many years ago. I think if I were to do this again I would write something on the reverse that reminded me of the person noted.  

Next time!
