Greetings Sweet Friends,
How are you this fine day????
I just came back from mailing Bonnie's package,
(the winner of my drawing last Thursday). Can't believe
it takes a week to get from Florida to California. So
she will have a long week of anticapation, which hopefully
will make it even more fun when it gets there.
Told yall before that I had done a casual pre birthday
table for my daughter too, just cause they happened to
be coming over that evening anyway, So here it is......
I decided to use purple only because I have these napkins
that depending on how you fold them you can use different
colors, so have never used them with purple or lavendar,
so decided to raid the house to see what I could find
that was lavendar or purple.
So.....I found this lovely large glass, think it is a
margarita glass maybe, that we had been given from the
Wedding of my son's best friend. He was also like a 2nd
son, cause he used to be at our house so much when they
were younger. So.... when he and his wife got married
these were the centerpieces at their reception, and they
had candles floating in them. Also, her aunt did all
the lovely hand painting on them that you see!
I think they are just beautiful!!
Found a lilac swag in the closet from some years back, when I was making
floral arrangements to sell, and it had yellow and several shades of purple
You can now see the napkins, and as you can see they have some green,
gold and brownish colors as well, so decided to use a tan tablecloth.
and thought I would use my white basket weave plates,
cause they seem summery and flowery to me!
This looks like it has white in it, but it is really pale yellow.
Thought my smokey green wedding crystal would go nicely
Thought this just looked interesting............
a shot looking down thru the glass of water,
hadn't added the candles yet!!
I like that the napkins have petunias and grapes
in the purple tones.
This is a swag, but I just tied it together with pipe cleans to make it
a large candle ring, and at first I was going to use crystal candleholders
but then decided.................
on the birds since it matched the white dishes!
Loved these unexpected shots looking up thru the
glass.....it looks like writing on the walls, but it is
really the writing on the glass that you are seeing,
It says "Count your blessings" on one side
and on the other "one by one".
This was suppose to be a blue hour photo,
but doesn't really look all that blue..................lol
A lil look down the table....guess you can
see where the birthday girl sat!
and here is a similar picture with a photoshop affect,
Gradient map.......love the colors!
Now with the candles lit!!
This is with a posterized affect!
This has a lens flare affect!!
I get a kick out of these affects, don't you???
Birdie thru the looking glass! lol
More pics of the great painting she did and also with
the candles burning!
I cut out some flowers and the dragon fly from some
pretty lilac wrapping paper I had and taped it on
the gift bag, and made her a card with lilacs on it
as well. This pic has a posterized affect too!
I love seeing candles or flowers floating in water,
Just so pretty!
This last one has a posterized affect!
