A Table For Four

A very special occasion for four. Just because we LOVE August

And this beautiful vintage Pyrex a neighbor gifted to me when she moved out of state:

seating place cards made from a greeting card that I received from Samantha at Mommy's Timeout 

I made four copies of the front of the card and folded them in half and added the name of the guest

Beautiful napkins and rings I won from Bill at Affordable Accoutrements.

And these cute wine glass rings my beautiful niece, Christina, made for me

Thanks for stopping by,

Today I'm joining Susan of Between Naps On The Porch:

  2. I love this tablescape. And I am soooooo in love with that pyrex dish. <3
