The Feast 2010 — The Pix

Back a few posts I uploaded a video of this year's Unboundary Feast along with some explanation of how I came up with and executed the theme. Here are some pictures (thank you very much, David Naugle!).

Here we are stringing and hanging all of the "thankfuls."

The finished venue. With thankfuls above the dining, hors d'oeuvre and dessert tables.
At the entrance to the space we have a lone thankful . . . The Feast.
I really wanted all of the focus to be on the thankfuls, so I kept the table simple. A white butcher paper runner over our dropcloth tablecloths and candles in clear and frosted glass holders.

Simple paper napkins wrapped around the bamboo utensils, then tied with the organic yarn used to hang the thankfuls. The utensils are super cool, found at Party City of all places. Very pilgrim-y and colonial. The spoon is like a miniature version of a wooden mixing spoon. And the knife cut very well. No splinter injuries reported.

A great Feast was had by all.

That is a great blank canvas to work with. What is it usually?
Your vision and theme were perfect, simple but elegant.

Love that the dogs were included in the Feast. Must be a dogs delight.
