Birthday

On Friday, I celebrated my birthday and so, hosted a little dinner for my nearest and dearest used it as a giant excuse to make a really unabashed tablescape complete with several things that probably should not make it onto a birthday table.  Like skull votive holders.  Honestly I would never subject a friend (unless equipped with a healthily sick sense of humor) to this sort of memento mori dinner ensemble, but...  It's my birthday and I can dress my table as the inanimate embodiment of Morticia Addams if I want to.


I took my cake very seriously!  All cakes should be at least as large as your upper torso. Rule of thumb.

It's fabulous. I like the idea of blue and white porcelain and skulls. It's your day, set the table as you please!

Your celebratory tabletop is darkly elegant and even a bit decadent, with just the right amount of sparkle and reflectivity for the candlelight to enhance the effect. (I have that same set of candleholders, ones with urn shaped tops.) One would not be surprised to be served absinthe at that table. Happy Birthday Lauren!

You totally rocked my world! I love your table cloth, the ornaments, even the crystal candelabras, the set up - everything is completely perfect. Somehow, you might want to visit one of my favorite wholesale tablecloths store on the net. Their items are really fabulous and are really perfect if you were having a big party to throw out.

The interior design of the ornaments looks marvelous. It perfectly matches the wallpaper of the house. I just want to greet you a belated happy birthday too.
