We had a party for our youngest daughter's birthday last night - it was a lot of fun!!! My table setting was a green plaid tablecloth and green plaid napkins - Sears Cattail dishes and red handled flatware.
The dishes were made by Sears in the 40s and 50s - I've been collecting them for several years now, and finally have enough to serve the whole family when they come over.
The grandsons had smaller bowls, with flange handles
Red flatware and rattan napkin rings with green plaid napkins - oh and some snow it seems.
I found these green goblets in a thrift store on Camano Island a couple years ago - but only four
And then recently I found some clear ones in the same design - so I alternated green and clear
For a simple seasonal centerpiece I clipped some evergreens from our yard and put them in small bottles with ribbons around the bottles
Picmonkey and I had a lot of fun today with photos.
The evergreens smelled wonderful when I clipped them - but by the time the lasagna was done cooking you could smell nothing but the wonderful, fragrant lasagna.
Before dinner was served I had a little snack set up of Chex Mix - which a friend calls Nuts and Bolts - and so I shall call it that from now on.
Served in small crystal cups, from a large crystal bowl - with a red handled scoop.
It was a wonderful birthday party - lots of family - lots of good food - lots of laughs and of course presents - and dessert was mince pie and apple pie - but I forgot to photograph them before we gobbled them all up - but I can assure you - they were delicious. And I had them all set up on the three tiered plate stand and then forgot to take pictures - maybe at christmas I'll have more pies to take pictures of.
How do you celebrate birthdays that are near Christmas?
