I'm having a birthday today. Yay me!
We had a little family party last night and it was a wonderful evening. As usual, I snapped a couple of photos while I was setting the table, minutes before the guests arrived:
I used my lovely Haviland Concorde china and Danish Princess silver, together with the crystal candle holders I received from my Mom for Christmas. We always serve from the table, so I usually don't place much decoration on the table. I think I need some fancier water glasses, to replace my plain Pottery Barn ones. I snapped this photo in progress, so I didn't have all the glassware out.
I am very fond of this new linen tablecloth I bought last year (which is a chore to iron)
I snapped a photo before bed of all the birthday cards, some funny and some mushy. It was a lovely evening, despite the fact that I had a blinding headache. Since I figured it couldn't get much worse, I had a couple of glasses of red wine to drown the pain...!
Have a happy week and welcome Spring. I love that the time changed on my birthday - what a gift to have longer days and balmy weather today...!
