March Birthday Luncheon

















One of our customers asked us to create a special tablescape for a birthday luncheon that she was hosting in her beautiful home. Since March can be such a dreary month in Chicago, we decided to use bright spring colors to set the table. Sheer rhinestone studded throws were placed over the cloth, and gold branches placed down the table. A collection of brooches were placed in the branches to add sparkle and whimsy. Mixing a collection of different antique service plates with Moroccan tea glasses and vintage crystal gave the table a unique personality just for this special client. A spring border of flowers was placed down the center of the table with a mossed edge. The tall silver candelabra held additional flowers and added height to the table. Gold flatware and chargers were regal, a birthday fit for a queen! Be sure to visit www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com for more beautiful tablescapes.
