What do you do when it's your dish buddy's birthday and she lives on the other side of the country? Hold a luncheon in blogland, of course! Rebecca, I hope you're ready for a round of parties today, because after our luncheon you're expected at The Little Round Table, Random Musings of a Deco Lady, and Dishing With CaraFaye. We Tablecloth Divas have missed 'scaping with our fellow diva of late, so lots of tabletop fun is flowing today!
Rebecca and I both like tropical and sea 'scapes, so let's start with a Simtex Clambake tablecloth.
Aren't these sea creatures just the cutest?
Now let's add some of Rebecca's favorite contemporary Fiesta color, lemongrass, some accessories, and voila!
These vintage pink fish dishes were imported from France for a line called Peasant Village. They're just perfect for a little shrimp salad.
The Fiesta cake serving set (perched on an inverted hostess bowl) is ready for the birthday cake. These adorable fish napkin rings from Italy were a gift from a Dish Fairy. I had been waiting for a special occassion to use them, and today is just perfect. They hold vintage napkins in case you need a little help with your crumbs!
Happy Birthday, Rebecca! I hope you have a wonderful day, and I'm looking forward to the next luncheon that we share.
Other items on the tabletop include glassware, demitasse cups & saucers (for our Seattle's Best coffee), salt & pepper shakers, prep bowls, serving utensils, and a disk pitcher from the post-86 Fiesta line. The luncheon plates are Fiestaware 2000, and the flatware is Royal Rope by Gibson.
I'm also inviting all the good folks from Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch to the party.
