Easy-Peasy Centerpieces/ Take One


Hello, dear friends.  
I hope you had a good weekend.  
Ours was a lot of fun.  

The sous vide held center stage again.

We went out to dinner one night and had a couple of friends over for happy hour the next.  Here are a few of the nibbles that the Mister prepared. 

We also went back to the empty theater to see Lucy and Ricky in action.  I enjoyed it very much, but I will tell you it is by no means a lighthearted flick.  Nicole and handsome Javier gave stellar performances.

Today is an encore post from years past.  I added a few new photos and tossed a few as well.  This is the first of two parts. 
  As with almost every decor post on this blog, I cannot take one ounce of credit for the hard work and creativity.

This would be pretty easy if you have a few polar bears hanging around, like Martha.
