Today, Thursday October 21, is my birthday, and you are cordially invited to dine with me …
… in my family room, at a little table for two.
We’ll use my Wedgwood Nantucket Basket dishes, and Gorham Old French sterling …
… and dainty vintage pink glasses.
I’ll pick some of my hydrangea,
and some of my sweet pink roses …
(… I don’t do that for just anyone, you know 🙂 …)
And let’s both have presents to add to the fun!
Maybe the box inside will be my favorite robin’s egg blue. 🙂
Later, we’ll go shopping …
but for now, let’s sit and chat, the old-fashioned way, over a little meal, together …
… just you and me.

Happy B-Day!!! So cute-I love this, great table and flowers! I love presents too-thanks:@)
I seriously love those little purse placecard holders! My daughters would adore them. Love those dishes too. I have some similar that I picked up at an antique store. I need to check and see if it’s the same pattern. LOVE the basket weave.
And most of all… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 29???
Very cute table. Love those purse napkin holders. And what a pretty place you have to eat your meals. Pretty scenery.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love the blue and pink….so pretty! Wishing you a fabulous year and lots of robin’s egg blue boxes!

Happy Birthday to YOU!
Happy Birthday, DEAR LINDA,
Happy Birthda to YOU!
I hope that you are having a wonderful birthday, and I just love your table! It’s so cute. I have Nantucket Basket, too, and I never, ever tire of it. Loved your pretty table, those cute little place card holders… DARLING… and the pretty flowers and the packages all make it so festive. Love your flatware, too.
I celebrated my MIL’s birthday on my post today. I posted her party from a year ago, but I am actually late posting for her birthday since Mr. Magpie was sick and recuperating.
Happy Tablescape Thursday Birthday, Linda!
Happy Birthday to you! Love the bouquet you’ve gathered~ I hope you get something in a robin’s egg blue box too 🙂
Ooh, this is just lovely. Thank you for the invitation. I gladly accept. Have a very happy birthday tomorrow. Í’ll be celebrating along with you because tomorrow is our son’s 21st. It’s actually his golden birthday (21 on the 21st). 😉 Last week was mine and I wished all October babies a happy one too. Enjoy.
PS I absolutely love those adorable purses. Much love!
Happy Happy Birthday!!!! Your table is charming and I LOVE the little purse place card holders!
Enjoy your birthday…EAT CAKE!!
Oh Happy Birthday, my friend!!!!!! And many many more. May God bless you richly this year!
I honestly felt like you set that table for me and you! It seemed so personal… just waiting for me! I was so drawn in.
Your Beautiful dishes (oh, I love them…. lust really) are made the center of attention by those great bright blue place mats. Perfect pairing!
I love the flowers!!!!!!! They will soon be all gone, so it is so nice to see how beautiful yours still look.
And your gift for me… how kind!
Ok, wouldn’t it be fun to go shopping together? However, I don’t think those purses could carry enough money! I might want to do some serious fiscal dammage!
Happy Birthday, Linda!
Happy Birthday, Linda! You have such a wonderful flair–just the right touch! I feel like I’m really celebrating with you! Thank you for sharing, and, by the way, love those adorable purses!
LOVE the Wedgwood dishes!!!!!!!! That is such a beautiful design! The whole table is so cute, and the hydrangea are lovely!!! Happy Birthday to you!
What a lovely birthday table you have set. You are just like the Hobbits who give out gifts on their birthdays. After reading those books we always talk about that and how wonderful it would be to give gifts rather than receive and you certaily did today. I adore the little purses, let’s go shopping. I do think bloggers shopping together would be seriously dangerous, but tons of fun! Have a wonderful birthday tomorrow and celebrate each and every one. I try to just be glad I am here another year and count each birthday a blessing!
Happy Birthday to you! That wrapping paper is just too precious… I so want the “you” to be ME in your party!
Happy Birthday! I would love to sit at this table with you!
Happy Birthday!!! So lovely setting, love the cute purses!!
Birthday Blessing to you~~
Charming setting! Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday to you. The tablescape was lovely. It looks like you are a girl that knows how to have fun. Speaking of fun, I am so glad that my deer mirror brought a smile, if not a chuckle or two. I had too much fun making it. I think it is gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy belated birthday, Linda. My sister shares it with you.
I missed all these posts. I had pneumonia and didn’t do TTH. Still not feeling myself.
Such a pretty table and the name card holders are so sweet!
I’m so sorry I missed this post. Happy belated birthday. What a beautiful setting, so fresh and crisp. Loving those card holders. I know your children are off at college, but I hope you were able to have someone join you at that lovely table.
