When we arrive to a venue in the Tampa bay area to start a wedding day, there are two pet peeves that are, well, my pet peeves. Guests wearing jeans and bad martinis. Understand that my mention of a “martini” in this instance has nothing to do with a beverage, it is a décor style of a high top cocktail table. You place a linen on a table and then tightly wrap a sash around the table pole and the table looks like a martini glass. And just like anything else, there is a “good” way to do a martini, and a “what is this?” way to do a martini, also known as bad.
A quick, yet efficient way to determine a good martini. All Yeses mean good:
Step 1: Does the table remind you of a martini glass?
Step 2: Are the table legs covered by the linen?
Step 3: Is the sash around the stand tied in a clean and tight manner?
