Dec Birthday Table

nana2010_gwDecember 15, 2011

December's birth stone is blue Zircon or Turquoise and the flower can be Daffodil or Poinsettia. I chose Poinsettia mostly because they are pretty and more seasonal.

The placemats, flutes and napkin rings were on clearance at Pier One. I got the clear glass plates and small white ones at Walmart. The turquoise ones are from Big Lots. The sherbets and wine glasses belonged to my great aunt and date back to the 1930's

I kept adding things and taking them away. I finally decided to keep it simple.

I hope you enjoyed looking.

Nana, beautiful Dec. BDay table. Love your place mats, flutes and napkin rings. All the dishes you used on here look great together. I really like all your square plates you bought and stacked on here. Just the perfect touch with the amount of turquoise on the white tc.

Using wht poinsettias would of been my choice too. Neat CP. I love it that you used the sherbets and wine glasses from DA. The blue candles and the candle holders look so fancy. Very pretty on the mirrors.

Your candle light picture is awesome, Nana. One elegant setting.

I had to chuckle this morning, nana, when I looked at this post again...at your comment: " I kept adding things and taking them away. I finally decided to keep it simple. .... sounds pretty familiar...must be contagious! LOL! Jeanne S.
Is your round table 'wood' ... I think this color combo would look great against 'wood,' too!

nana...Thank you again for this lovely Birthday Tribute Table!
I agree with everyone..this is such an elegant looking table. I too love the color combination. Reminds me of 'icy blue'... Your placemats are very pretty and set off your dishes so lovely. The CP, candles and flutes in the night pic...is especially striking.

I also want to wish ALL December babies...A Very Happy Birthday!

Nana, Thank you so much!! I'd be honored to sit at this table for my birthday. It is very elegant and the colors are beautiful. You do such a great job on the monthly birthday tables, but since this is mine, I'm a little prejudiced in thinking it is one of your prettiest. LOL

Thank you and Merry Christmas,
Candy

This is a great way to carry out a birthday theme ANY month of the year. It's especially nice if you are giving a little dinner for an adult and want to avoid repeating the balloons and primary color thing. Very nice.

This will go into my idea book.
