A few weeks ago it was birthday party time for one of our son-in-laws and I thought a Valentine theme would be nice. It is a good chance to get out all the red and white dishes (well, not all of them).
I started with a red lace tablecloth - add red and white dishes - and some crystal
Add in some milk glass
And treats on the side - brownies - candies and cheesecake (made by our youngest daughter)
White dinner plates - clear red salad plates-translucent white soup bowls, crystal napkin rings on heart napkins.
Then I decided to try the crocheted tablecloth over the red lace and liked it much better
Red handled flatware
Also some silver filigree napkin rings
Adding in a bit of pink glass
Since there were more people at the birthday party than would fit around our table - we quickly re-set it as a buffet.
Flatware in a white enameled pail
Ready for the salad dressing
Here comes the food
While I was setting the table - Don decided to help out with the red and white theme - so he brought several things that coordinated with the them - like his baseball.
Can you find the other things in the photos that he "helped out" with?
It was a grand birthday party!
