celebrating our favorite guy

hi sweet friends! i snapped some pictures of the table the girls and i dressed up for jeffrey's birthday last weekend....our favorite guy turned 45. we usually keep it simple with just us, my parents and jeffrey's parents...but even if the party is just for a few, the girls and i both love to fluff the table;) i picked up some flowers at trader joe's and we kinda went from there....
i used hydrangeas, sweet little gerber daisies, eucalyptus and the most gorgeous shade of blue hyacinth....
the absolutely adorable paper table runner i found when magpie and i stopped in hester and cook .....if you are in nashville, you have to go and see their store....it is SO pretty! i wanted one of everything!
i mean isn't that black and white check just the perfect party touch?! they also had a red and white check I'm thinking we may have to go back for;) and the sweet little watercolor place cards were made by emme and rayley....they were just perfect....
all of the plates i have had for years....some are from target, some are martha stewart when kmart carried her line....do y'all remember that? and some are tjmaxx...that is what i love about all white, you can just add pieces over the years and mix and match. i just love the look of white but different shapes and textures...
the linen napkins and silver napkin rings are from pottery barn, and the twig vases i sold at the briar patch, but the faded farmhouse in arrington sells them also....
and how pretty is that sweet hyacinth? they are on my list of favorite flowers for sure! it is a very long list;) it is just too hard to decide when they are all so pretty!
and the big girls LOVE balloons! they think party=balloons....so i was so happy when i found these confetti filled balloons that are pretty but not too distracting from the table...
i mean aren't they the prettiest?! and i found them at walmart believe it or not!
and then i found these sweet clear with white polka dots that we used in the kitchen at hobby lobby....again balloons equals happy girls and nice and neutral equals happy momma;)
adorable right?
and as i was going through pictures i snapped, i just realized i totally forgot to snap a picture of the cake! jeffrey and the girls always request the same cake...for me to make a white cake with chocolate frosting. i thought i might mix it up this year, but the gasps heard when i even mentioned it told me otherwise;) so here is to celebrating someone you love and making them feel special on their special day. because everyone likes to feel special and be celebrated, whether they are five or forty five:)
