Simply Elegant

As quickly as you can pickup ingredients for your meal, you can pick up pizzazz for your table.

A $5 mixed bouquet from Publix added to what I already had on hand and brightened the table for this quickly planned dinner party for 4.  All I had to do was arrange the flowers in a vase when I got home, and place the white candles in silver holders on each side.

The place settings consisted of silver chargers, pale blue china, khaki linens, and pearl napkin rings.

Suddenly, this impromptu invitation took on a Simply Elegant appeal that made my guests feel treasured and they should!

You're absolutely right about the flowers. They really do play an important role in setting the tone for a nice dinner. That shade of blue along with the silver is so lovely.
