Tablescape Thursday - My Birthday table done by hubby




Hello Sweet Friends,
How are you doing today???
Very Well,  I hope!

It has been a great week around here so far.
My actual birthday was yesterday, so I got to go 
with my daughter to get a pedicure last night,
while hubby and her fiancee hung out,  then we
 ate Mexican food,  it was a very nice evening.

Well,  wanted to show you a few shots I was
able to get of the birthday table hubby did!!


He did really well,  he got all the silverware in the right place,
as well as the bowls!~!   Good going honey!!


I love peach,  so it was a peach and green
 tablescape.


These were the lovely carnations we got at
Sam's,  I thought they were so pretty with the
yellow touched in pinky peach.  So Pretty!


A nice look at the centerpiece.  Those lil urns are
holding candles in case you can't tell!!  


I love these napkins because you can fold them 
differently to show different fruit or flowers giving
 you a different look.
One way they look like in the above picture,
  another they have grapes and you can accent 
purple or lavendar,  and another way they have
 raspberries with that pretty raspberry pink color. 
 So they are nice and versatile.



Thought you might like to see inside the urn,
  the clear glass is repurposed!!
It is the top of a yankee candle jar, with
the plastic removed.  

The family made me a delightful dinner,
it felt like I was eating in a fine dining
restaurant for sure!!

 celebration.  Just  click here!

Glad you dropped by................
and thanks for sharing my
 special days with me!!


Love, Hugs, 
 and Non -Tornado Blessings,
(We are under Tornado warning till 8 P.M.tonight!!)

Happy Birthday! I'm trying to picture a table that my husband would set for me. He knows his flatware, but the man is color blind. It would probably be brown and purple or something.

Your peach and green is so pretty. I love those two colors, too. Also, you make me want to dig out my napkins and see if any of mine are versatile too.

Great job, Hubby!

He definately did do a great job. He's been paying attention to what you do!

Whoa, the lights just dimmed. Storm's coming!
I'll let you go!

I love you all,
Susan

Rebecca said...

Clearly, he's been paying attention to your great tablescapes! Belated happy birthday, Nellie! (I've never had a pedicure. Maybe one of these days. It sounds so special and it is getting closer to "sandal season"....

Beautiful! He did such a good job.

Hope you are safe with the weather conditions. There is nothing that used to scare me more than tornados when we lived back in Nebraska.

Love that you are going so spoiled....

When you visited my BLOG you asked about if we knew about Skype and indeed we do. In fact we just skyped the other night. The kids were tired and really didn't want to talk although Emma showes us a dance and sang a song. So cute....

Blessings & Love
Janet

Nellie, what a wonderful hubby you have! He did really well! It's beautiful! I know you felt truly special to have your guy set such a lovely table just for you! :)

Tricia said...

Tell your sweet hubby I am much impressed! And happy birthday! Pedicures and Mexican food sound just about perfect to me!

CAS said...

Happy Belated Birthday! I'm so sorry I missed it. It sounds like you had a great day. I'm kinda thinking that maybe your hubby needs his own blog. I mean, very nice work on that tablescape. Good luck to the both of you regarding the job situation. Have a great weekend.

Hello Nellie,

Love how positive your blogging is. Can't help but rub off on others. What a man, to do a nice table setting. Pretty napkins! Florals are so appealing to me right now. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog.

See you soon,
