My mom turned 73 years young and what better way to celebrate
than with a luncheon for her and a few of her friends!
I set a table for 10
And another table for 8
My mother uses a lot of blue and yellow in her home.
I was thrilled when I found these tablecloths at Home Goods
and knew I wanted to use them with her party. One was 60x102
and the other 60x120. The plates, crystal stemware, and "nests"
were from guess where? Yep! Dollar Tree. I used the vine
wreaths as chargers which I thought worked beautifully in
keeping with the bird theme.
It was the day before the luncheon and I still did not know
what I was going to use as centerpieces. I headed to Home Depot
and checked out their plants. I found the cascading white flowers then
looked for flowers in yellow and blue. Next, I picked up three clay
pots which I knew I could paint blue - and I did. One coat of
paint dries quickly and I had them planted lickety split!
I placed the little bird on top to help even out the height of the blue
flower. The birds and ribbon were in my "stash" or "my little bag of tricks"
as I like to call it. A while back, I bought the little blue birds at Hobby
Lobby and the green burlap ribbon was from Michael's (located
in the DIY floral design section). I knew I could use it somewhere - and I did!
Each guest would leave with a small succulent as a party favor.
A little reminder of the day! Happy Birthday Mom!
With the tables set, the party favors looking pretty by the front door,
it left me time to make the food. Check back next week
when I tell you about my inspiration's source along with the menu!
Thanks for visiting!
