A Table with Frosted fruits and silk flowers...:)

Late December  has always been a time for celebrations. The holidays are filled with reunions of family and friends. For occasions like this table settings along with beautiful center piece decorations play an important part . The season too like no other season  provides citrus fruits Oranges, shiny Tangerines and other fruits like Apples, Grapes,figs, strawberries etc.

During this season there is excitement in the air and many have in their mind how do I present my table in a fresh and impressive way.It is not always possible to go for expensive shop bought decorations. A table arrangement with fruits and flowers along with China wares for a holiday entertainment  is most welcoming. If you are thinking of giving a festive sparkle to the center piece the theme is expanded to frosted fruits and flowers .

I created a pastel table setting with frosted fruits and silk flowers to give a festive touch. It was fun creating this table as well the frosted fruits. 

Idea to create frosting fruits: Brush egg white (after beating lightly) on the fruits where required. Then sprinkle powdered sugar over the painted egg white. Remove the excess sugar from the fruits by gently shaking it off. 

 This arrangement on a holiday... sets the scene for you and your loved ones...:)

Wipe Chennai's Tears.

 Dear blog friends and visitors of  this post.... you may be aware that our city of  "Chennai " and  Tamil Nadu State  in Southern India had heavy to very heavy rains for the past one month. The pictures and video clippings I have posted below speaks in volume of the prevailing catastrophic condition of Chennai city and surrounding areas. Due to lashing of  rain and subsequent flash floods,have caused unprecedented heavy damage and loss of lives. People have lost their near and dear ones, homes and belongings. The stray city animals in particular the dogs, cats and cattle have also not been spared.  The Government of India, the State Government , voluntary organizations and individual groups are working hard and pooling all the available resources to bring the city back to normalcy and to extend all possible help to the victims who lost everything due to Mother Natures fury. I too with few friends of mine have engaged in helping the less privileged and unfortunates. Towards this I seek help from you friends in sharing this message and contributing for the cause. The need of the hour is to provide them with comfort cloths(Shirts, T-shirts, Jeans, Pants, Trousers, Children cloths, Baby cloths and clothing's for women) Blankets, Bed sheets etc used and unused. Please don't hesitate to do your bit in removing the tears of the victims.Your contribution may also include food for animals. Thank you all.
