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!
