Ballet Dinner Tablescape

"In a dancer, there is a reverence for such forgotten things as the miracle of the small beautiful bones and their delicate strength." ~ Martha Graham

We celebrated Mary Ashley's recent performance at the Briarwood Ballet with dinner at our house before the show. The production was a retelling of the children's classic You Are Specialby Max Lucado. The tale centers around a village of wooden people, so a little art model from Hobby Lobby made an ideal cake topper -- especially with the addition of a tutu fashioned from a doily. I neglected to photograph our menu, but I hope you will enjoy this glimpse at our festive table.

(Cake from Publix.)

Above, one of my favorite scenes. These girls were amazing!

Our sweet little Wemmick is in the center. Isn't she a cutie?

Coming up, fresh-picked teachers gifts. Have a lovely weekend!

Thank you for sharing! I do miss your delicious long blog posts about the menu, food, tablescape, invites etc.

Do you mind sharing what dinnerware are the green plates and white plates?
