Divali - table setting



Table setting without flash, I was a bit rushed so I never got the second layer of smaller coloured flowers to go inside the white ones, but I was still pleased considering I had 10 minutes to rush something together.



Table staken with flash, but showing how it is reflected in the mirror to create a full circle, but again, the white flowers hardly show without their coloured centres, not that we were looking at the flowers, we were looking at the (top corners of shot) sweets! More pics soon, trying to sleep off the intense sugar rush.

It really was a lovely night, peple looked wonderful in their outfits and I had an unexpected guest that I hadn't seen for over a year, so that was extra special.

Best of all, it was warm and toasty, my stove was on top form (though it switched itself off 10 mins before people arrived!) and the music I had keyed up on my Mac went down really well, particularly as I finally found the cable that connects my Mac to my stereo.

The music was accompanied by some incredibly gorgeous photo's from the internet shown as a slideshow, they really gave a wonderful Indian feel to the whole night. Happy Divali.

Ooh, never knew I had lots of comments for this one, thank for taking the time.

Paola- you know I'm thrilled for you to be blogging my pics, I never mentioned that the red and white tealight holders are mini disposable jelly bowls... which I won't be disposing of, of course, so it was a very Marth moment.
