Table set up 6 course tasting menu and cake tasting Our Guests In the kitchen

Table set up

Kristie and Kevin's wedding is in less than a month and I am in charge of getting desserts for the reception party.  Kristie and Kevin did not want a traditional wedding cake so I suggested getting a bunch of individual cakes, pastries, etc..

Tonight I am inviting our friends and family to come over for dinner and then having a cake tasting afterwards.


I always decorate my hallway with seasonal theme so now that Fall is here and I am bringing out the decorations with lots of yellows and brown.


Table is set up for 17 people

I brought out my colorful plates to create a fun mood...



Doan and Tuan went shopping at Stanford and they saw this arrangement at Anthropology.  Doan really like it and so they bought it for us.

What a lovely arrangement.


I decided to use pine branches as the main theme and added white roses and bring pink flowers and the funny thing is, it went perfectly with Doan's arrangement.


These 2 large arrangements were supposed to be the centerpiece but now they are on my kitchen island.
