This avant-garde table design was created by EverAfter Events for Exquisite Weddings magazine and is a feast for the eyes. The use of silver, black and white punctuates the power of the red. Clean lines, geometric vases, and the black linen-free table lend a sense of modern sophistication, while the red in the cranberry martinis, carnation-covered seats and bejeweled menu bands call for a festive evening of romance. “I loved the richness and depth of our table; there were so many layers to the deliciousness of the look!”
KISS ME MARTINI:
2 ounces vodka or gin; ½ to 1 ounce vermouth (optional); ½ ounce cranberry liqueur or 2 ounces cranberry juice; fresh, frozen, or dried cranberries for garnish. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with 2 ice cubes. Shake for 10 seconds and strain into a chilled martini glass. Float 3 cranberries for garnish.
