Reprise- Petite Happy Birthday Celebration

I've been a little busy lately and haven't had time to focus on a tablescape so I have chosen to re-post one of my earliest tablescapes from March 22,  2011.
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 marbles 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
and visiting (or revisiting)!

  4. Gorgeous table, Liz. I don't recall seeing it before, so I am happy you reposted.

    Happy Weekend.

  5. You posted this on 3/22/11...when is your birthday? My Mom's is 3/22. I remember this beautiful table setting, largely due to the candles you used which I thought were so pretty and unique. I also remember loving the napkins. Beaded napkins are just so pretty!!! I do a lot of tablescapes on a 42" table and I agree...very limited space! But it's petiteness is perfect for 2 or 3 people!!! This is beautiful!

  6. The Yoshino is such a gorgeous, feminine pattern. It is perfect for a Spring party...or really any time of the year. I'm glad that you posted it again. I love the addition of the glass marbles and the pink string of pearls. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay
