Also while Elizabeth was away was the 25th Anniversary supper for the Czech Heritage Society of which we are members.
My MIL was asked to do decorations and recruited me to help with them. Since it was the Silver Anniversary, we decided to go with silver, red, and white as our colors.
We made two different centerpieces. One single pearlized white candle hot glued to the bottom of a cylinder vase with silver netting swirled around the bottom, sitting on a white embroidered napkin.
And three white votive candles with ivy accents, also sitting on an embroidered white napkin. All along the center of the tables as a "runner" were Hershey Kisses. It all turned out very nicely and we received many positive comments about the decorations.
Members were also asked to bring a raffle item, if they wished. Of course, I had to put a plug in for FM and Sara's Garden!
