Birthday Time

October is full of Birthdays.
Time for a party!

This beautiful table belongs to my sweet Grandma. She currently does not have space for it so I'm storing it for her in my living room! Lucky me!



A close up of the carving on the base of her little table, it's so pretty!

Red, brown and white, a different take on fall...

Little glass bubble cake plates... also from Grandma.



I just love the red and white print on this wrapping paper.

The clipping is from a small plant in my back yard.
I just love the contrast between the red berries and green leaves.
A baby pumpkin in white.

Some views from above.

And some from below...


A little candle light for the Birthday Girls!




I hope you enjoyed my "party"!
Thank you for coming.
Please visit me tomorrow for Art Work Friday.
I have posted this to Between Naps on the Porch.
Please visit Susan for more wonderful tablescapes.

I enjoyed your red, brown and white take on the party. My birthday was yesterday so I can join your October celebration. The glass plates are lovely. I believe my mom received that pattern when she was married many years ago. So nice to have heirlooms past down like your pretty table too. Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing.
