Enchanting Eucalyptus

Sage green eucalyptus is the way to go for a simple yet striking table. This table has been spread with butcher paper. You can hand letter or stencil the guests' names on the paper for an elegant place setting.

It looks festive and personalized, yet makes for super easy clean up after.

In the Vine Light

Extend the eucalyptus theme by creating a single hanging light bulb with the strings of greenery extending to the light.

For a down-home feel that matches our Eucalyptus d├ęcor, we'd recommend going with a bluegrass folk band. Look for authentic bluegrass not only with a banjo but a bass as well.

In the Lemon Light

This Sparkling Lemon Suze cocktail makes a pitcher of drinks perfect to balance our sweet evergreen event.

Ingredients
For the Lemon-Sage Syrup:
6 ounces water
8 ounces (about 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon) sugar
2 ounces fresh juice from 2 lemons
Finely grated zest from 2 lemons
10 medium sage leaves

For the cocktails:
6 ounces Lemon-Sage Syrup
1 1/2 ounces Suze
1 bottle chilled Cava or other dry sparkling wine
6 strips lemon zest
6 fresh sage leaves

Directions

For the Lemon-Sage Syrup: Combine water, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sage in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to boil, remove from heat, and let stand 1 hour. Strain and refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 week.

For the cocktails: The night before serving, combine the lemon-sage syrup and Suze in a large pitcher. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. When ready to serve, add Cava, pouring slowly, and gently stir to combine. Split between six Champagne flutes, twisting a lemon zest strip over each and garnishing with a sage leaf.
