Winter/ Spring Birthday Table for Susan

Happy Tuesday
 Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you having a lovely
week so far.

It has really been a lovely week since
Friday here in Florida......the weather
has been perfect, Sunny, breezy, clear
blue skies and temps in the low 70's
and just what we all prayed would
happen for my Husband's "70th
 Surprise Birthday party, and it even
carried over for lil darlings birthday
party on Sunday and is still going
strong.....hoping it will never end,
but knowing it will, but think we
might have another good week if
the forecast is right!!  lol

The Surprise I have mentioned
a few times that was coming,
was hubby's party, and it was
a hit......he really  enjoyed it
and so did all of us.

I have just been resting up since
the big surprise is done and over
with......I was a tired girl after-
wards but feeling better as the
 days go by.....This week I have
nothing on the agenda and have
to say I am loving that. Starting
to take down some of the Winter
decor and put out a few Easter
things.....taking my time....lol

Well, pictures today are from my
Sister-in-laws birthday dinner the
end of February.
I called it a Winter/Spring table.

Decided to go with clear glassware 
for my Winter table centerpiece.

Already had this centerpiece on the
table with just the candles and 
cylinders with apples and moss,
So just decided to add some 
flowers to it. White carnations.

Decided to use my white corelleware
as it shows up so nicely on the green
placemats.....which show up so
nicely on the white tablecloth.  lol

salad bowls from my wedding 
china, since they have a green
floral print, along with our
 wedding silverware.

The white napkins didn't show up to well
on the dishes so decided they needed some
pazazzz, so found this 2 tone green ribbon
in my stash.....and then decided to put them
on the placemats instead.....

This is lil darlings place.....

Clear stemware to match the 
clear glass in our centerpiece.

Thanks for visiting today and hope you
enjoyed your visit and maybe got some
ideas for St. Patricks Day....this would
work well for that if you throw a few
shamrocks into the mix..........lol

Have a great week,

Love, Hugs, and
Early March Blessings,
