DME Ladies and Gentlemen Tables


The new window displays are up and the DME staff is loving the theme, because it was inspired by them! Each table represents our fabulous ladies and gentlemen that make up the our incredible staff all while including the patriotic theme of this past weekend.


For our gentlemen's table, instead of using a floral centerpiece, we wanted to include items that are near and dear to our staff like their old trophies, childhood toys and of course beer.


Look at those American flag runners aren't they great! Instead of using one long runner across the farm table, we used four runners to create a personal place setting so that each person has their own individual flag. These awesome runners and napkins are from Pottery Barn!




The dinner plate sits on a cool leather charger with a place card attached to a glass buoy in the center of the plate which ties in the guys love of boating. A pilsner and mason jar are used for the boys to enjoy an ice cold Sam Adams Summer Ale.  The amazing farm table and place settings are courtesy of Rentals Unlimited. 

Now for the DME ladies inspired table, simplicity is the key. 

The classic yellow and white striped table linen is complemented by the navy napkins that hang over the edge of the table give the perfect accent color to the bold linen. Again the linen and place settings are from our friends at Rentals Unlimited! 


The white anemone centerpiece sits on top of a cutting board with pewter crab handle,s surrounded by seashells which incorporate the ladies love of the beach and food. Sundae glasses filled with fresh berries and whip cream give the table a touch of red white and blue. The Gurgling Cod from Shreve, Crump and Low provides the ultimate contrast to the traditional water pitcher


 Clear glass plates are placed on top of a dark rattan charger which gives the table texture and completes the overall look that the DME ladies love!

Stop by the Dana Markos Events studio to get a closer look at these incredible displays and let Daniel know you love them as much as we do! Great job Daniel!  






Happy 4th of July!

Fourth of July is one of the best days of the summer. Everyone’s outside having a great time, dancing to their favorite music while decked out in our nation’s colors, devouring all the barbeque foods they can eat and ending the night with a beautiful firework display. However this year, the most patriotic holiday will be filled with rain and thunderstorms. Thanks a lot Mother Nature!!

Even though the day is predicted to be dark and gloomy don’t let it put a damper on your Fourth of July festivities just bring the partying indoors.  Although barbeque just doesn’t taste the same without the grill, here are some really great ideas that we love for an indoor 4th of July barbeque.

Food
Here are two great ways to have hamburgers and hotdogs without having to brave the storm and cook on the grill, all you need to use is the oven. 

Cheeseburger Sliders


Crescent Dogs


Drinks 
Making your own drinks are a great twist to the normal canned drinks that you see at an outdoor barbeque. These drinks are easy to make and even fit with the color scheme!

Layered Drinks (Kid Friendly)



Red, White, and Blue Sangria (For the Adults)


Desserts
These dessert look too good to eat!

Fruit flag


Patriotic cupcakes


Chocolate Covered Oreos


Decorations
Whats a fourth of July party without some red, white, and blue
