Since I was throwing a New Moon Premier Party on Friday, I decided to stick with this. I’m not hosting Thanksgiving and all of our fall decorations are already down in preparation for the party. Here’s what I came up with:
I wanted the table to be dramatic. So, I started with a black tablecloth and a red runner. My aunt loaned me the lovely antique candelabra and I dripped red wax on the white candles. I found inspiration for this on the internet.
I drug out every red votive I own (which is a lot because we used them on tables at the wedding). Then, I scattered apples around (to play off the cover of Twilight). I think it turned out really fun.
We actually didn’t serve a formal, sit-down dinner, but I set up the place settings for the photo. I was making some themed food, so I thought I’d use these little cards of Edward and Bella for place cards for the table. I thought it would be funny. It was.
I even dug out my old skill of folding napkins from my past life as a catering manager.
I think all the red really looks cool. And, I think this could be modified for an elegant dinner, Halloween or even Christmas (sans the blood of course).
And, here is the overview of the different elements of the table.
