Tablescape Tuesday: Let’s Party!

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing”
Zephaniah‬ ‭3‬:‭17

Our family loves to celebrate birthdays-a tradition started by my precious Mother!  Last night we came together to celebrate Katy’s ?? year!  The Lord brought Katy into my life and into our family a little over two years ago.  I never dreamed our first conversation over a cup of coffee would develop into such a strong bond of love!  She contributes so much to what you see and read here on the blog!  I am beyond blessed that she is a major part of my everyday living!

No party is complete unless there is good food!  Butch grilled burgers (one of Katy’s faves) and I added side dishes!  I always ask the one we are celebrating to pick what dessert they would like for me to make!  Katy and I share a real fondness for the coconut-pecan cake from Chez Fonfon in Birmingham, and just so happened that Frank Stitt shared the recipe in a holiday magazine!  Even if I say so myself, the cake was almost as good as Mr. Stitt’s! (Everyone else agreed!)
Happiest of birthdays, Katy!

I know it is still winter, but I wanted a cheery
and fun table for our party!

A Very Merry Birthday!

The table runner is a pastel blue with small dots.  I chose not to use a tablecloth or place mats for this setting!

When I think of a happy flower, I always think tulips!

The Wedgwood pitcher is a recent purchase from our downtown antique mall.  Its soft color was a great addition!

The birthday girl’s place card!

Mikasa’s “Fruit Rapture” pattern always makes for a colorful table.  The white charger is my go-to “Baroque” pattern by American Atelier.  The flatware is our everyday stainless by Reed and Barton, a yellow cotton napkin completes each setting!

The centerpiece is a scalloped bowl full of Granny Smith apples sitting on a polka-dot round platter!

The stemware is “Reverie” by Noritake. I added a small pink and white floral pitcher by Churchhill!

The pair of candle stands are a match to the bowl.  I think I bought these at Tuesday Morning.

As you know by now, I love color!  Can you tell??

I shot the photos on Sunday which was a cloudy and dreary day.  Was hoping for bright sunshine to complement our party table!

Do you all think Katy will like her “Happy Birthday” table?!

Coconut Pecan Cake- it was a hit!

Our beautiful Katy!!!

    Happy Birthday to your lovely Katy! You have done it again, dear Pam…you have created a stunning tablescape. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and found it to be delicate and refreshing {does that make sense?} 🙂

    I greatly appreciate you sharing your loveliness at Roses of Inspiration – thank you! Enjoy your day!

  2. Rosie M. says:

    What a beautiful table! I love your collection of colors and patterns. I’m sure the whole effect put smiles on all who attended the happy occasion. Bright and cheery and an obvious reflection of affection for the birthday girl! Thank you for sharing…. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    I really like the gorgeous colors on your table! I would love it if you would share your creativity at the Friday Favorites Link Party, happening every Friday at!

    Katy is one lucky woman. I think we all need a little spring pastel in our homes these days.
    Nice Wedgwood pitcher. That must have made your day.
    You know, I only have glass, silver, and gold candlesticks – the common colors. I’m going to have to keep an eye out for candlesticks in different colors. My eye caught a hold of them right away.

    • Thanks so much for reading and taking time to comment. I love color, so I am always on the lookout for unique items! I do love the scalloped candle stands and they work great for spring settings! Blessings, Pam

    That is such a cheerful table. I love the color! Tulips always scream Spring to me. That cake looks delicious and I’m sure that she loved it! Have you shared the recipe before? Thanks for sharing with SYC.
