Let me start by saying I have to give my husband alot of the credit for this idea. We were in an antique store which he usually hates, when I caught him looking through a bowl of pool balls. I didn’t know what he was doing. I kept on looking and then he came up to me holding 3 balls and said, “Our Anniversary.” I was a bit shocked, and very pleasantly surprised. I later asked him what had made him think of it, he said it was something that I had done while he was looking at the balls, but he doesn’t remember what…oh well at least I know I was his inspiration. 🙂
So then the fun part came of figuring out where to put them and how to display them. My mom, aunt and I headed to another Antique mall (this time my hubby was at work). While looking through some adorable wooded candlestick holders that had been painted white caught my eye. I thought they would be perfect. However my mom found these GORGEOUS crystal and silver napkin rings that had roses etched in the crystal. I decided to go with them. I still got one of the candlestick holders to use elsewhere. Needless to say I later decided to go back and get the 2 other candlestick holders and liked them better. I am still going to use the gorgeous napkin rings to hold my napkins once I find the perfect ones. 😉 At first I had it sitting off to the side, but then decided that it would make a wonderful table centerpiece.
Without further ado, I think that this is a great way to display a special date. Plus it gives my husband touch in the feminine decor. 😉 It was a breakthrough to say the least.
