Close your eyes and pretend. Pretend you are on a lake or by the ocean, the sun is quietly setting, the clouds unhurriedly going by, the wind silently blowing … Let go. Let go of your will, let go of self. Let go of your power. Let go. Let it be. Breath. Yes, it is real. Yes, it is heaven!
The location, church wall. Lights decorated. Italian posters, curtains and chandeliers were up. Candles, flowers, glasses, utensils, Chiantis bottles. Tables were set. Music, food. We were ready!
Each of the tables sat six and it was on first come, first serve basis. However, some were reserved. The Chianti bottles, the tablecloths, the utensils, the wine and glass glasses were all donated by a local Italian restaurant, the green table runners confectionated by us were added to the table to give the flair of the Italian flag.
Simple but elegant decor for a beautiful night celebrating Italy!
