Thought we would dine by the fire, but with a sixty-degree temperature, a fire would have heated things up a bit toooo much!
The roses were on special at Fresh Market, and they were so beautiful and such a great price, I couldn't pass them up.
I've been watching these salad plates (Galaxy by Sahura) for a year at a local antique mall. When they were finally priced at half off, I couldn't resist! They are paired with simple white plates with gold rims that were purchased at Pier 1 years ago, and a larger black-rimmed charger plate from a kitchen specialty store.
I found these champagne flutes in a closet still in the box, never used. I purchased them years ago at Tuesday Morning, they are Vincennes by J. G. Durand.
These beautiful napkin rings were a Christmas gift from a dear friend.
After appetizers of cocktail shrimp, pecan-cheddar spread with strawberry preserves, and smoked salmon (I was full after this) we had a salad of romaine, strawberries, grapes, feta, and toasted walnuts with a blush wine vinaigrette, lobster tails, crab cake, and spinach squares. Our wine choice was Sebastiani Cherry Bloc. Too full for dessert!
First light of 2012!
Thanks for stopping by! I wish much happiness, joy, prosperity, and good health to all in the New Year!
