A very special, celebration fell mid-week for my "Honey's" 65th birthday.
It was the reason this was just going to be an intimate gathering for four. Our friends, Mike and Eileen were called away, to go back up north, to tend to Mikes' mom that was ill :(
Since the tablescape and menu was already planned I decided to go ahead and put it all together to celebrate his milestone day and make the best of it for him and to share some pics of it with you. Being that we're far apart, I can at least keep you up to date in photos, anyway :)
Here is the traditional fall tablescape, with lots of autumn colors, fun textures
and lots and lots of pics...I hope you'll like!
A little "bokeh" thanks to Pic Monkey's editing overylays and effects!
Ding...Ding...Ding... a vintage, brass dinner bell, with a snip of seeded eucalyptus, to summon the celebration!
This was my "Honey's" surprised reaction!
His antique toolbox, sometimes used as my garden tote, was the centerpiece for the evening.
Chippy paint and square nails make me swoon!
Oh, how I LOVE the color and the wear on
Mini, white pumpkins, assorted fall foliage and my autumn toned beads accent the inside.
Nutmeg scented votives covered with kale, acorns and rustic, burlap ribbon accent each end on top of an old, rustic, plank.
Here is the whole nine yards!
Chalk painting the dollar store glasses was a last minute idea and since I couldn't find my chalk using a white paint marker made it a more permanent thing!
Eat, Drink, Laugh and Celebrate were the words of choice.
Pfalzgraff, butterfly accented, plates were a special touch since they represent to us....
(and with more, fun, pic monkey edits )
"Grandma's heirloom silverware is always special!
My antique, grain measure served as the perfect, rustic server for little, garlic, bread sticks.
Our boy, "Gucci" is always by my side!
A poem, by me, to my Honey from 2008.
And so, it was....
In case this wasn't enough fall tablescaping...you can find more inspirations in my Tablescapes section in my header :)
And now, on to editing my next post...
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
