A galvanized metal tiered stand from Pottery Barn, (used here) is holding appetizer boats, netting, and glass fishing floats for a centerpiece.
And a fleet of sailboat napkins were launched with the help of a how-to video. Small bottles of Pellegrino will quench our crew’s thirst and just happen to be the right size to fit under the napkins and prevent our boats from capsizing :)
I hoisted scrapbook paper sails for lemon wedges and then cleared the deck to set sail with a watermelon boat. . .
A dowel and scrapbook paper/card stock make a quick sail to transform a watermelon into a vessel for serving a medley of fruit.
Shells from fresh water Asian clams left on our dock as parting gifts by resident muskrats are sprinkled alongside glass floats. We’re keeping our fingers crossed the muskrats keep clams on their menu instead of our boat hydraulics!
Caprese Stacks are topped
with basil leaf sails~
And a little balsamic glaze
keeps our stacks afloat~
