Morning Sweet Friends,
How are things going in your
neck of the woods?? Well, I hope!
It is a beautiful sunny day at the present, but amazing
how quickly it can turn into dark clouds and rain! lol
Typically, this time of year I would be planning a table
for our daughter's birthday, but since she want be here
on her birthday but am hopeful that she is coming in
early September, I decided to go ahead and plan
a table early, and then can reconstruct it when she
I had come up with this centerpiece way back when I was
planning a table for my SIL Susan's Birthday, the end
of February but decided on another one, thinking I might
use this one for a friend's Birthday, and since that didn't
happen, I realized it was perfect to go with these plates
and napkins I found, don't remember where now!! lol
Anyway, thought they were very pretty with there gray,
white and tan print
Was gonna use a tan tablecloth but decided since
it was still summer to go with the baby blue.
Maybe when I redo it I will use the tan
since it will be in September...........
I used my corelleware plates, the pretty paper
plates, and a rosenthal silver edged dessert plate.
Scouted the house for all things silver, then found some
white things to add in to tie it together.
colored pencil affect
Decided to use the napkins sort of like a crown,
I guess you would call it.
If you want to know how I did it........let me
know and I will do a tutorial, it is very simple.
Shot from opposite end of table, where the window is...
this lil candle holder is just silver napkin ring with
a tea light candel in it.
a tea light candel in it.
with gradient map affet
With diffuse glow affect
Had to tuck just a few of these cute lil birdies in............
A nice overview
Have had this antigue looking pitcher for
at least 36 years................so now it is at
After I took all those pics thought where else could I tuck
a lil more of this print in and thought to open the napkins up
all the way, and sure enought the print was all the way
around, so I ironed the creases out and used them as like
a place mat.
Liked the look, just a bit more festive.
Thought it looked traditional enough to use stem ware.
This table cost me all of $2.00
Was too lazy to relight the candles!!
Too many pics as always, it is like you don't
realize how many you take then trying to
choose which ones just takes so much time,
I just do them all, sometimes cropping if
necessary and ocassionally an affect.
Much easier and much less time consuming.
Well, hope you enjoyed your visit,
and come back real soon............and
would love for you to let me know you
