Chinese New Year Dinner and Centerpiece Wednesday

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Welcome to Centerpiece Wednesday!
Gong Xi Fa Cai which means "Congratulations may you be prosperous" is the most common Mandarin Chinese way to say Happy New Year! We celebrated with our family by getting out any and all Chinese decorations we had to create a fun tablescape.
We bought this huge Chinese fan at a Chinese store in Texas a few years back and used it for
This dinner we hosted for our daughters prom dinner. Can you see it on the wall?
We put some little cuties in a glass jar in the center of the table which represent good fortune.
We served edamame, 2 different kinds of satay chicken (recipes will be posted on Friday)

Pot stickers from Costco

Long Life Noodles (recipe will be posted on Friday)
Stir Fried rice with broccoli (recipe will be posted on Friday)

For dessert we had pineapple tart cookies homemade directly from Singapore (a friend of my hubby's) and another kind of flaky New Years cake from Taiwan!

It was a wonderful evening and we stuffed ourselves!

Can't wait to see what has been the centerpiece of your week! Please share recipes, DIY posts, tablescapes, mantlescapes whatever you have been working on. We will highlight some of our favorite posts next Tues!

Hey, girl! You did it up right!!! My goodness....so colorful, and SO much food!!! I have tasted those Costco pot stickers, and I think they rival the taste of those in any good restaurant! VERY tasty! I love the big soaring purple dragon(?) above the chandelier! Have a great weekend!

Looks like a festive celebration. Sadly I didn't get a Chinese New Year table set for this year as I was out of town. Thanks for sharing yours.
