so elements of his fabulous winery
were a must for his 85th Birthday Celebration.
I am definitely not a florist.
When asked to do the centerpieces,
I knew I wanted to do something simple and potted
so I didn't have to do any arranging!
The etched glass hurricanes reminded me of sparkling wine
and I loved that they were slightly whimsical...
The hyacinth were so elegant.
They were in the perfect shades of white and purple,
and topped with corks they would remind everyone of Bob.
I topped the table cards with grape leaves...
and placed the place cards in cork holders...
(different colored leaves signified their entree choice)
across the street from the new Facebook headquarters.
Thank you Bob, fifty years after its debut,
your wine will be enjoyed by a whole new generation.
