I love birthday parties, and my favorite birthday celebrations are the ones that I get to host for my precious Garden Friends Bible Study. This day we were celebrating Barb's birthday.
Barb loves blues, and pinks, and greens...lots of color, color, color! We're seated in the dining room, and I've set a table for ten guests. Come on in...
Not a lot of stacking going on today. There are just some plates that it kills me to cover, and this is one of them. I knew that Barb would adore the Coalport Leighton Sprays dinner plate. I was also certain that she would love the extra pop of color provided by the Bormioli hot pink glass charger plate.
A special birthday deserves a special centerpiece. I have been pretty much gaga over the Mottahedeh Musee Des Arts Decoratifs tureen since I found it on eBay. eBay Tip: By the way there is currently one of these available on eBay, if you should want one. The one that is listed right now is priced for about half of the usual list price.Still not dirt cheap, but comparatively it's a good deal.
The tureen was flanked by our Val St. Lambert crystal candlesticks and the Lenox urns filled with flowers from Whole Foods Market. Easy peasy!
Chicken pasta salad, fresh berries, hot bread, and a chocolate mousse birthday cake was served for lunch.
