Hello All! I am sorry I am late posting this, but it's my birthday and was out enjoying lunch and shopping. I decided to decorate for my birthday in grand purple style this year. The mantle is done in shades from dark to light purple hues with lots of glitter! Of course a girl needs sparkle and this isn't short on that! So starting with some lavender mesh and flex tubing as a base , I entwined homemade party hats with fur in two colors, birthday medallions with cute sayings, candles and curling ribbon through out. My age in BIG numbers, ( no I am not ashamed of it), three pretty presents, and a vase full of tri colored purple lollipop's. A banner proclaiming Happy Birthday, over the top of the mantle in shades of glitter, for some pizazz ! Two criss cross lolly pops put just under the mantle for a cute finish.

For the table scape a lavender tablecloth and a purple glittered swirl overlay, two glittered chargers, my antique glass purple dinner plates, Ralph Lauren white salad plates, the matching antique desert plates , and a purple bowl. Matching antique glassware, silver flatware , and purple and white lace napkins, with a little bling on the napkin rings! The centerpiece is a group of gerber daisies,iris's and hydrangeas, in a dark purple vase with a Happy Birthday tiara.  I hope looking at this display makes you smile because it does me everytime I walk by it. I will be back with my tribute to memorial day .

Until then,
