So I set my table outside with what I had. The vintage tablecloth was Norm's mothers:) How lucky I am to have some of her linens!
I took a tag, wrote a message on it, used a fork for a holder and...done:)
-the plates are Match, the glasses are Reidel.
-the flatware was a TJ Maxx clearance and the glasses are Kerr jelly jars.
-the fab cloth napkins were a bday gift from my sis in law:) from Domestic Bliss:)
And just to keep it real, I'll show you the beast I have to fight off my patio all day-everyday!
She leaves me little gifts like this, and I don't like it:( Moving right along.....
I served my favorite go to meal. Pasta with Prosciutto and Peas. It's super quick and easy and really tasty:) I used leftover cooked chicken instead of the prosciutto, cause that's what I had!
A simple salad of arugula and pine nuts dressed with olive oil and sea salt- perfect:)
And the birthday cake? I stopped off at Fresh and Easy and picked up this tiny little cheesecake. I sliced some strawberries and sprinkled them with a little sugar and let them sit in the fridge for a while so they create that yummy strawberry syrupy stuff:)
Poured that over the top and added a sprig of mint- and there you have it:)
And yes, I made him blow that candle out twice cause I didn't get a pic the first time!
