Celebration by the Sea Side.....:):)

Hi there..Everyone.....I share here photos of our 25th Wedding Anniversary, which we celebrated a few years ago at a beach resort. The day also sees our elder son Prashanth's birthday. Our idea was to celebrate it at our home town Chennai/Madras with family and close friends.We narrowed the venue down to a beach resort outside the city on the East Coast Road (ECR) along the Bay of Bengal. The East Coast Road is charming due to its soulful ambiance, leisurely atmosphere along  with availability of terrific food giving a different world at the waters edge for a wonderful romantic rendezvous. It was indeed a memorable day, celebrating by the sea as everyone enjoyed and wished us.

Since it was our Silver Jubilee Anniversary, we chose a colour theme of silver and white. We placed a order for a three layered white cake which had touches of silver and a bouquet of white roses with some greens to adorn the table. The give away gifts for the guests were tiny little white doves wrapped in a silver paper and put in a small silver paper bags. A bottle of champagne was opened to mark this day of double celebration. It was indeed an evening to remember and it goes down the memory lane.

The calm sea in the photo gives an impression that the water is quiet & harmless. But, in fact just forty days earlier to the anniversary, the resort was badly hit by the devastating Tsunami which also hit countries like Thailand,Indonesia, Sri lanka, India and some parts of Africa.This beach resort was badly hit by the Tsunami but luckily no one lost their life. Before the third huge wave which was as tall as three stories high could arrive, everyone escaped from the resort. The sand looks blackish in the photo as a result of the Tsunami.

Sea Side Dinner for two..:):)

Summer by the seaside is a refreshing inspiration.It's always a wonderful feeling to have meals by the riverside or by the ocean.I was inspired to do a beach table by using a big white shell along with fish and oyster vignettes.The beach/sea/fish theme continued with shell filled candle holders in the middle.A tiny crab and a fish placed on the plate looked perfect along with a hurricane lamp.Bloomed white lilies as a backdrop matched the table as well.The little touches are pleasing--and offer a pleasant time for two.
