A Quick Table Decoration

A simple and elegant table decoration used for a dinner with acquaintances. At the bottom of the dish is glass crystal shavings bit I've used plastic wrapping before to much the same effect. Paint some dried twigs white and then rose petals. The town in the background is St tropez port where we were moored that evening. Ive spent a lot of my time as a stewardess in St Tropez, the playground of the rich and famous. 
At First I didn't see the fascination with the place, everything was over priced, there is only one road leading in which means during summer time it can take upto four hours to get to from Cannes when it should really only take one. But now Ive grown to love the place. There are many hidden gems there that the 'rich' will never get to experience like Pierre the fish man. He works in the little fish market in the port where all the chefs go to buy the seafood for their clients. Talk to him for half an hour one day and he will remember you for years to come and when you say its a fish for your own table your most likely to get it free. He and his family make a killing because in St Tropez, the higher the price the more people will want it. Crazy place.
