In winter wonderland mode, there were handmade snowflakes hanging from the tent's roof.
And on the table, olive branches from our very own olive grove.
Peacock Pavilions intern Sarah, a florist in Salt Lake City, made these sweet napkin rings. She also stenciled place mats on craft paper, using Royal Design Studio Moroccan stencils that were originally made for Peacock Pavilions! I purchased the embroidered napkins in the Marrakech souks.
Crafty Peacock Pavilions intern Dave (Sarah's husband) crocheted these little capes for the Egyptian hand blown vases.
We used our peacock plates that I bought at Anthropologie. And Sarah made darling handprinted place cards, this one for Peacock Pavilions artist in residence, Todd.
There were some delicious things on the menu, including smoked salmon and foie gras that lovely best friends had brought from France. And of course a champagne toast.
But most of all there was laughter. Because that's all a good party really needs, anyway, don't you think?
