Tablescape Thursday, Birthday/Christmas table



Hello Sweet Friends,

How are you this fine Wednesday???

Busy as a beaver I'll bet!!

I am sort of on hold right now.............
can't decorate the tree cause hubby ran
into snags with the lights and then we had
to buy a few new strings yesterday but were
out all day and tired when we got home,  so
no work on the tree,  but we did watch a 
really great Hallmark movie called "an old
Fashioned Thanksgiving".  I know we are 
a lil late on that,  but it was a great movie
in case you want to rent it thru Netflix,  we
highly recommend it!!

Hubby went to a seminar with his old boss
today.  His boss signed him up just in case
he wanted to go.  Can't wait to see what
the Lord is up to in this!!  Probably teaching
on something he needs for his new business
I would be willing to bet!! Well,  not really
bet $$, but you know what I mean!! lol

Well, guess I had better get it together
and talk about Tablescape Thursday 
or lose a few people!!  lol

This cute lil gal below is my new
daughter in love to be!


and this post is about her birthday 
celebration table.  Her birthday was
really Nov. 29th,  so I tried to make
it not quite so Christmasy and maybe
a lil bit Wedding looking since they
just got engaged and are starting
to plan the Wedding.
So see what you think!!


Thought the green print china looked Christmasy
but like a wedding as well, as all the white !


 This was the napkin for the guys plates...
it is a suppose to be a small candle fold.
Got it idea from MarthaStewart.com


This is a view from above the table.
This is the Christmas tree I made from
coffee filters.


I sort of ran out of time and used what
I had to decorate it.  Liked the wreath
around it,  but would have liked to do
something more with the tree itself,  but
haven't figured out quite what yet.


This is the girls placesetting, I added these
beautiful ornaments that a sweet friend
made for me last year!!


another candle fold napkin shot!!


This was my Wedding China from 40 years ago,
just in case you are new to my blog.




This pic was taken at night


This pic was taken in the daylight!!


Got these lovely satin poinsettias years
back at Kmart,  they are from Martha
Stewart Living.  I just love them!!


Here is a closeup of the ruffles on the tree!
No one could believe it was just coffee
filters. Megan said she thought it was
some sort of nice fabric.



This was a closeup of the pick on the wreath.
Loved that I was able to catch some the irridescience
of the bulbs on it!!  It is really even prettier!!


I like the candle shining thru the goblet.



This has a posterized affect on the picture.
Gotta love photoshop!!


This shot is equalized and in film grain.
Love how it made things pink!!


These are repurposed yankee candle lids.
Turn them over pull off the plastic with
 needle nose pliers, add some epsom salt
 to look like snow and insert candle,  looks
 very pretty.......... and you don't need to
 throw them away, cause they are quite useful!!


This is also my wedding silverware and crystal.
Love it as much today as the day I picked it!!
Only wish it was dishwasher safe!! lol


Lens flare affect.





This is a stainglass affect!!
thought it was very pretty and different.


I am still trying to figure out where to put this
lil tree next!!



Posterized affect!!


  This is a palette knife and posterized affect.



One last look at the tree..........
Can you tell I really like her!!  lol

Well,  sweet friends..........
hope you enjoyed your visit!!


Can't wait to see all the new Christmas
inspiration that the Tablescape Thursday
 gang have come up with this week!!
Be sure to go over to Susan's at between
 naps on the porch and check them out
for yourself. Click Here!


See ya tomorrow!!


Hugs and Christmas Blessings,
Nellie

What a sweet table for your future Daughter in Law. I can't believe that tree is made of coffee filters! It's so cute!!!

Totally beautiful, Nellie!!! My son's birthday, also, is November 29th. He turned 19 this year...seems like he was just born, so how can he be 19? And, how can he be 19 when I'm only 30, right? I must've been breeding quite young!!

Anyhow, again, huge congratulations on the engagement. Not only are you getting a precious daughter-in-law, but Megan is getting lovely parents-in-law as well.

I had to go to the ER on Monday due to horrendous kidney stone pain. I've been on pain meds since then and am quite loopy and groggy from them. So, I'm not spending much time on the computer.

Your table is lovely though. The china is beautiful...and I totally love the little white trees and the way you've decorated them.

Have a lovely evening.

Love,
Patti
So sweet of you to do a table for your DIL to be! I don't ever remember seeing that candle napkin fold. I love it! I'll have to see if I can Google some instructions.

I love the tree. It looks very delicate. What a beautiful tablescape too and such a sweet picture of your DIL to be.
I like Martha Stewart stuff too but our KMart closed a few years ago. I really miss it.
Are you being affected with that cold weather in Florida? It is rainy and 50 here in Oregon.

Have a woderful week!

Have a Resting Sunday!

Happy Sunday Morning to You Sweet Friends, And Happy Spring!! She has finally officially arrived. I decided to try a new meme today,  it is called  "Shadow Shot Sunday". I am going to combine it with my Sunday verse   for  the day  which I haven't done for  awhile.  Thought it would  work great  together. I am linking up to the "Hey Harriet blog" So.....if you want to check out all the other shadow shots,   just click here. The header photo is of my bathroom  window,  very early  in the morning,  just as day is breaking. You will see the sun coming up more and more. I only wish the camera could have captured the way the light was dancing on the window pane, truly a beauty to behold! I took these at different stages as you can probably tell from the amount of light coming in the window, and now onto the valance. It was truly fun and fascinating to watch! Remember.......................... He who dwells in the shelter of th

Psalm 148:3 NIV   Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope you week has been a good one.

So on with my Thankfuls...... #1 Thankful for a nice time with our  Son  and Lil darling,  He was sweet to bring dinner for all of us, and then we played some wii and a card game.  A Fun Surprise..... especially
