Birthday Dinner

It is time for Susan's Tablescape Thrusday. Go and check out her awesome tablescape at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ and then visit her particiapants also for more inspiration.

It's not too late to sign up for my giveaway yet. Go to http://christineshomeandtraveladventures.blogspot.com/2011/05/500-posts-and-giveaway.html and try your luck.

Not too fancy, I set the table in the kitchen in front of the TV. I was not feeling too well yet. I got my hubby's cold, cough and congestion and I just came back from a trip to Houston to accompany my friend with her medical appointment, so I was tired. I bought the crabs from a Houston market, had them steamed and then iced them on transport.

Unfortunately, John nor my mom do not know how to open and peel the crabs so I had to do all the work. Aren't they spoiled? LOL!

I love how the sun rays are shining on the table.

I decided to use all white plates.

White Vintage garden plate chargers

White paisley embossed dinner plates

White Villeroy and Boch salad plates

Not a set but they do go well together, don't they?

Copper flatware

Napkin rings are red with copper colored frames.

Polish pottery serving pieces.

Mango mousse cake, also from Houston

I bought the red glass goblets from Fiesta in Houston for $1 each. I bought 9 in case one breaks and sure enough, I broke one when I was unpacking them.

I thought the blue looked good with the orange crab shells and yellow corn.

There you are, a birthday party with just me, John and mama.

I debated at first, whether or not, to have a little party and invite other people, but I had to cook more and was too tired and kinda sick, so I decided against it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks Susan, for hosting Tablescape Thursday.
