White and Red and Fun All Over!

Saturday night we went to our annual Christmas dinner at the Scott's.  It is a grown-up evening with great friends, excellent food and incredible design all around.  
Suzanne always does an amazing job with the table and this was no exception.  
The pictures aren't the best quality because I forgot my camera and had to resort to using my phone, although I am actually pleasantly surprised at the quality.  

She painted the candelabras and the chargers. 

Darling breakfast room

Southern Living Red Velvet and White Chocolate Cheesecake dessert that was just the other side of Heaven!

  4. Who could ask for more than Red Velvet and White Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert? Love the concept of red and white. Just look at Santa red and white, right?
    Have a great Christmas and New Years,

  5. Pretty tablescape and what a gorgeous cake. I'm sure it was delicious too

  6. Oooohhhh....I love that napkin treatment! She really did a great job! ANd I really like the way she clustered the small individual poinsettias to create one long centerpiece and then dotted the ends with singles. Very pretty!

    THAT CAKE!!!!!!!!! THAT took some real doing!!! What a terrific hostess Suzanne is!!!

  7. 'OMG - that cake is to die for. The tablescape is gorgeous and I love the red and white. Suzanne is sure a great hostess.

  8. Beautiful table...but I am having a hard time taking my eyes off that luscious looking cake!

  9. Love all of the photos, but the cake really struck me. I have a page in a "Southern Living" magazine with that cake or a similar one marked to make for Christmas. Yours is beautiful! I hope that I can do as well, as you have done! Merry Christmas and save me a piece of that cake - lol!!

  10. I will have a piece of that cake! Yum! I love Red Velvet. The poinsettias are so stunning on the table. Love the look of just white and red. Joni

  11. You just can't beat red and white and I must admit it was the cake that drew me to your link! I have been drooling over that since I saw it on the SL cover, yours looks just as good! I might try this for Valentine's day! Your table is gorgeous!

  12. Lovely! One of the best examples of carrying a theme completely through...

  13. That painted candelabra is genius. Thanks for sharing your friend's lovely table with us.
