When my family were posted to Mauritius from Australia and we lived there for a number of years I once threw a bottle in the water with a message in it, the water is so beautiful and clear in Mauritius and I hoped that someone would get it and send me a message back!
So when I got this gorgeous party land in my email box I loved it…
As Elise says “Wouldn’t we all love to receive a romantic message in a bottle from some mysterious source? Whether the sender is anonymous or someone we know, how romantic to receive a beautiful love letter – floating atop the waves!
To style the dessert table for this set I used lots of nautical items mixed in with the Valentines theme – anchors (which I am in LOVE with right now!), hooks, bottles, twine, sand, starfish and sea shells. I love all these elements mixed with the white, pale pink, red and gray colors of the printable set.
I kept the food for this table very simple and easy for any host to re-create including vanilla cupcakes, creaming soda jell-O pots, meringue cakes, strawberry milk, lollipops, Hershey’s Kisses and assorted candy.
The location I chose to photograph the table is very much in keeping with the nautical theme at the William Gunn Jetty, Manly, Brisbane. I was so lucky that this beautiful replica Schooner sailing boat was in dock and made THE perfect background for the table.’
