My Birthday Luncheon Table.

Hello dear friends !

Last Friday we hosted my birthday luncheon to all our siblings that Mr. Living invited, so I really did all the cooking and everything else, lol..

We had two tables set up for 13. The formal dinner table was done up for eight and the round for five.

I wanted to use my green china they haven't seen and my DD Sofia's beautiful quilted place mats she gifted me two C'mas ago. I had almost forgotten them!
I wanted a cheery table for a sunny day, so all I used for Fall here was the leaf napkin holders.

Hubby gifted me a Channel perfume and ten clear crystal- German chargers, that would've looked great under the green plates, matching the same bread plates, but the store had to order them as they only had six.
Anyway, I will do my Thanksgiving setting with them to make the Mr. happy. They are gorgeous though !

My birthday was actually October 20th., so here is my two Lunch settings from last Friday Oct. 28.

I wanted to create for my birthday luncheon a happy, day table setting for a sunny day and came up with the green china and the lovely quilted placemats my DD Sofia's C'mas gift from two years ago.

Here the place set and for Fall all I had was the leaves napkin rings.

The bread plates are German crystal and hubby just gifted me for my birthday the chargers to match, but they only had six and he bought ten for this table.

I also placed as part of the centerpiece this adorable figurine of Ecuadorian country girls making sausages.  There are two and they were made by an artist back at our former Ceramic Co.

Here is the other figurine with another country girl making potato dumplings.

The round table I fixed for five and this is the only pic I took, lol..
Italian Tognana china, pewter chargers and bread plates to match.

Although I did the cooking, it was fun and so enjoyed it. I love the company of my brother and the rest are Sils and Bils.

Thank you you dearest for your sweet comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me.
