{Surprise Your Guests with Champagne on Tray with Romantic Rose Petals...}

For a romantic {Tuesday May 4, dinner with friends}, I presented our silver tray with Italian Prosecco, in French Baccarat champagne flutes, this way.
On page 41 of the beautiful book from Nouveau Tafelen in Stijl (at Table in Style) you will find this romantic tip for surprising your guests in summer time with a glass of champagne, or Prosecco. Arrange the flutes on a sparkling tray that has been covered by rose petals...
This gorgeous book about Decorations; Recipes; Etiquette and Reception is full of practical and romantic ideas.
Some of those ideas I have put into practice a few times and it gives always a nice surprising effect!
We used our solid silver tray that we had custom made in Kotagede, Indonesia.
For another special occasion, actually when Pieter's Goddaughter Myriam was here.
And what about a romantic toast with the love of your life?
Crystal fluted champagne glasses are French Baccarat Piccadilly and they are available at Replacements Ltd.

  4. Hallo Mariette,
    also, wenn das nicht luxuriös ist. Champagner aus Baccarat-Gläsern mit Rosenblättern - Whow.
    Du weißt wirklich, wie man glänzende Momente in Szene setzt.
    Prost...
    Liebe Grüße, Johanna
