Birthday Inspired Tablescape
Friday is Nana's birthday (51) so instead of a pity party, I decided to decorate my Table in honor of me!!! (At my age, I should take whatever party I can get!) So I got my birthday hat out from last year (don't ask me why I saved it!) and my Queen for a day wine (not whine) glass also from last year- threw in 2 little shakers from my daughter's wedding 2-1/2 years ago (yeah, I save a lot of stuff- wasn't even doing tablescapes back then!) and added them to the table for fun. I didn't want any dishes to do for my birthday, so- no dishes for Nana! I put down 2 pinks and one blue napkin for the runner used some blue and pink candles (not 51- didn't need that many!) and I really like it! Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me! (hehehe)
*I also added some of my trials of the "Blue Hour" at the end of the post. I am so fascinated by that- my husband thinks I am a nut for randomly taking nighttime pictures just for the blue! (Blue is my favorite color!)
Be sure and check out Between Naps on the Porch with Susan our hostess every week for fun and fantastic tables!
If you can't be a Diva on your birthday, when can you?
I love presents! (hint-hint)
The Blue hour:
We were at a friends house for their daughter's graduation party and I happened to look out the window and thought, hmm, it is about that time! You can actually see a difference through the viewfinder on my camera. It is so beautiful!
Have a Blessed week!
