A Birthday and Anniversary Tablescape
Welcome to my first tablescape posting. I am very excited to join all the wonderful participants for Table Scape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I purposely did not add any salad plates since we are having a very simple meal per request of the birthday boy. I did set up a desert tray and forgot to photograph the buffet. I will get better at this I promise.
The dishes are Claremont by Gibson. I am sure everyone has these. I purchased them last year in a household goods catalog, which one I can't remember. This is our everyday flatware the pattern is Cali Mirror by Cambridge. I purchased these napkins on Ebay last year as part of a set with a tablecloth.
These water goblets are a standard in everyone's home I am sure, they are Libbey and were purchased at Target 3 years ago. I used the birthday boy's cake as the centerpiece, it is setting on my Anchor Hocking cake plate from Bed Bath and Beyond.I am kind of a minimalist when it comes to setting a table. I need to step up my game and layer my table linens, next time I promise a tablecloth AND placemats, living dangerously for me. So there it is my first time, PHEW! Glad that is out of the way!
Thank you for stopping by and visiting my little neck of the woods. Be sure to visit all the participants of Tablescape Thursday. It is the most exciting day in blog land! Next week I will be posting the Mikasa Brava Rooster tablescape that I won at Anita's, Far Above Rubies. Sorry for the long wait Anita!!!
