WELCOME through my red door!
I am really behind with posting on my blog…even worse than the last time! Taking a few hiatuses. But hope to eventually keep up more in the future. Anyway….
This table was for my husbands birthday celebration…2 1/2 months ago!!
His birthday was on April 18!!!
This one had to be a little more masculine than some of my previous tables, you know, because he’s a man!
So starting with the charger; I borrowed these fabulous wrought iron ones from a friend of mine. Thank you Sue! I am so wishing I had bought them myself when I had the chance. They combine texture and height to this setting!
But of course I wasn’t thinking at the time. They’re from Taste of Home and are no longer available. Maybe I’ll check eBayI
The next charger is from Henn. Sue and I found the white plates at a flea market. The whole set was $20.00.
The salad plates and soup bowls are the cheap $1.25 pieces I found at our local grocery stores back around last fall, I think it was. Trips to about 5 different locations didn’t even get enough to make 12 full place settings.
The glasses are from Home Goods; the lantern from At Home America and the candle is from Pottery Barn. One of my favorite stores!
If I remember right I found the napkins at TJ Maxx and the rings from antique shopping in Virginia.
I honestly can’t remember where this cute little bird came from and it wasn’t even that long ago! But he fit right in on this table.
My husband was pleased! As I recall the meal was pretty good too, but if I had realized it would take me so long to post this, I would have written the menu down!!
A closeup view.
Isnt’ he cute!
A little off center, but shows the details in the plate.
The whole thing. Someone wasn’t home that night for Dad’s birthday!
My birthday was the week after his, but we went out to dinner. Then our 25th anniversary was the day after that! We went to a lovely B & B in Lancaster County, so I hadn’t set a table for it. But I am working on one and will be showing it soon! Hopefully!
I told you I was a little behind! And apparently, a lot forgetful!
Thanks for visiting!
