Last Friday was my youngest daughter, Tina's birthday. My baby just turned 35. As many of you know, she is also my neighbor and we take turns making dinner and on her birthday just happened to be my turn.
I used 2 of my favorite patterns for one of my favorite girls. The dinner plates are made in Portugal and the pattern is "Sari". I bought them a long time ago from either Horchow or Neiman Marcus on line. The soup or salad bowls are from the German Villeroy & Boch "Audun" collection. I love the pastoral scenes.
I just took a vase which we bought from an antique shop in Natchez and placed some yellow flowers in it for the centerpiece.

Yellow vintage wine glasses with stemmed Princess House crystal glasses for tea.
Silver plated flatware
V&B Audun Charm serving bowls
I love the design on the translucent frosted glass vase with dragon flies.
Portuguese dinner plates in "Sari" pattern
I love its slightly oval shape.
We finally moved this painting from Natchez.
and I moved what was there into this other wall across the table. Did you notice I have my little French buffet table here instead of the little colorful table that used to be there. Our house decor is going back traditional, it seems. The accessories on top, bowl, balls and urn, are actually mainly cobalt blue in color.
The plate chargers are octagonal in shape and in pewter color and I bought them on sale from Pottery Barn.
V&B Audun Ferme tea set. This is what started my collection. I bought the teapot, sugar and creamer servers from Trier, Germany, while on a tour there.
I served apple cider on the teapot.

And there is Tina with her family. We really did not invite anybody else but we had a great time and we were stuffed. I cooked pancit (Filipino noodles), crispy pork and coconut shrimp.
Thank you so much for visiting. I appreciate all your comments.
Thanks to the hostesses I am linking with. I appreciate all your efforts.
