birthday dinner tablescape

Yesterday we celebrated my mother's birthday. MacGyver husband grilled steaks and we dined alfresco on our front porch. I decorated the table with sunflowers, small lanterns, and a french inspired table runner. I picked apples from our trees and placed them in the center next to the flowers. To complement the red runner, I used my white Martha Stewart plates and glass goblets from Cost Plus. The lanterns were purchased at Walmart on the clearance shelf. Since the lanterns only cost $2 each, wouldn't it be fun to have one sitting next to everyone's placesetting?


  1. I loved that you shared the pics and description of your Mom's Bday Celebration!
    I look forward to reading your blog; as well as learning more about (our dear, dear friend) Raleigh's sweet daughter and her family.
    Welcome to the "blogging world"...

  2. Wow!! There are wonderful tablescape ideas for birthday dinner party. I like all these table d├ęcor inspiration a lot. At local party venues I would host my husband’s surprise birthday. I will use rounded table plan for birthday bash.
