Belated Birthday For MOM
Happy Thursday all. It is that time again, Tablescape Thursday is upon us again. Please join Susan at the wonderful Between Naps on the Porch. Make sure to visit as many of the beautiful tablescapes as possible. There is some amazing talent out there!
My mom had a birthday recently and due to the weather it had to be canceled.This Sunday we will be finally having dinner for her. She has chosen Chicken Penne Pasta, salad and garlic bread. I am going to surprise her with sour cream cup cakes with raspberry filling and white chocolate icing.
Hang in there with me while I do one more green and white tablescape. I have had this vintage tablecloth and napkins for awhile and I thought they would be perfect for a Mom table. Of course you will not be shocked to find out I got it from EBay.
It only came with three napkins and I needed 6 so mixing and matching was the only option. At the ends of the table I used my old faithful dark sage napkins from efavormart.
This is my husbands grandmothers silver plate in the Moss Rose pattern. This is so beautiful, I am sure our young daughter will love using this on her table also. But I have asked her to stay 11 forever, so hopefully she will comply!
Here is a close up of the tablecloth, in some places it is stamped to look like it was embroidered. There are no markings or tags so I have no idea of its orgins.
I had six of these water goblets but I chipped one so i decided to mix in the clear Libby's to the end settings. I see mixing with higher end stemware so I hope I'm not breaking any rules with the everyday stuff!
There is is, a table simple and sweet. Perfect for Mom!
Have a wonderful Thursday, thank you so much for stopping by. I just love visitors. I am off to school for a lunch date with the kids. Dang, they grow up so fast!
