Surprise, Pat!!! I know you hated the metal pelican, but I had to get it........this will teach you not to leave me alone with the table while you are gone.
Flatware is "Musee" by Reed & Barton
Yes, I know, the stuff inside the shell doesn't all "go together" - but it's my first attempt at a centerpiece......
I originally thought about just setting the pelican out at the party Pat is giving next month, but I couldn't wait. (You can tell we have both have a weird sense of humor.) Don't leave me on my own, Pat, to finish up the table.......
I put one of the mugs on the table so you can see what it looked like
