Petite Happy Birthday Celebration

Happy Birthday to my sisters Jen and Sherry, my friend Linda and myself!
We have either very recently had our birthday or
are soon to have it!  
For us ladies I felt these pastel colors
were perfect for my petite birthday party!
 Why Petite? Well on a 42" table you are limited on space!
A few years back when I first selected my china it 
was around my birthday and with 
spring on my mind pastels always seem to be in my head.
Macy's was showing it on their web page and it
struck home with me!
This is Yoshino by Noritake
(I've shown this recently, but frankly I don't own a lot of china 
so I don't have much choice)
I'm using the silver set from my Mother
it's called Reflection by Rogers Bros.
My beaded napkins are from Pier 1 Imports
and the silver napkin rings are from a
department store called Younker's.
My candles were purchased several
years ago. While poking through my 
candle collection I found them and
I thought they would look festive! 
I still have the original wrapper
and they are by Ana pageant....
 I dressed them up with these clear
glass marlbes around the
base of the crystal candle holders.
I used my pink pearl like beaded string (again)
for some added pink and placed a
few more of the glass marbles to 
add more sparkle!
Of course I had to include my aerial view!
Now for our luncheon menu...
and of course some freshly ground coffee.
Our birthday cake will be
Now I have to prepare this menu!

Thanks for stopping by!
