~Garden Party~

Today my 'Thoughtful Spot' was turned into 'the Birthday Spot'! 
One of my dearest friends had a birthday this past Monday so we celebrated with a thai food picnic in the garden . . .
 Even the birdbath was dressed up for the occasion. :)
One of my favorite things to do is set a table . . . I had fun setting this one with a vintage tablecloth, Haviland china, homemade 'button' napkins and the last of my roses.
And for an extra special touch I added these great vintage place cards that my wonderful Mom bought me years ago  . . . since a table for two can be very confusing as to where one sits, right? ;)
The gift was wrapped in tissue with a vintage postcard to make it fun.
The food was excellent (since it was takeout . . . ;) )
And the guest of honor looked so lovely . . .
 But the best part of all was just getting to chat away with a kindred spirit . . . there's nothing like another soul's understanding to brighten the shadows we live in. What a gift friends are!


  1. What a lucky friend you have!!! Love the gift wrap.

  2. Jennie, such a lovely setting! I'm so glad you had an opportunity to use the place cards. Whew! Your guest may not have know where to sit! Crisis averted. The gift looks so appealing - love the post card!

  3. Oh my gosh. Any excuse for a celebration in the garden, right? What a lovely, thoughtful friend you are!

  4. Hi Jennifer! Lunch in the garden with a girlfriend sounds wonderful to me. How fun!
