When it comes to outdoor entertaining, I like to bring the inside, outdoors !!
I don't reserve the crystal for special posh dinner parties, I like to use it and enjoy it whenever I can. My precious Victorian dinner set comes out in all of it's glory and my sweet French drinking glasses too. Why have beautiful things if they are locked away behind glass. I live for today and enjoy what it has to offer at the time.
I hung some gorgeous vintage curtain drops from the eaves of my entertaining area and layered lace tablecloths absolutely everywhere. I drape lace wherever I see fit. I love throwing lace throws over the back of chairs and even hang them in windows as curtains. Be creative and create your own look.
I spotted these gorgeous roses at a sidewalk fruit market. They were a steal at $5 a bunch and were tight little buds when I bought them. I didn't think they would last, but 5 days later they are still happily blooming away. They were my inspiration for the multicoloured color scheme for my table. Spring represents brilliant colour and all colours should be celebrated at this divine time of the year.
and a birthday breakfast must always have beautiful big platters of seasonal fruit.....and the strawberries were heaven sent...yummy !
and a birthday breakfast wouldn't be the same without wishing the birthday girl a very
HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!
May all of your dreams come true my sweet friend
