The tablecloth and napkins are from Marshals..

There is nothing like a little bubbly to begin a celebration....I received the ice bucket from Pottery Barn as a birthday gift from some special friends, I think it adds a special touch...

The filigree pale green Salad plates I found a couple of years ago at Home Goods.

The Large dinner plates are from Marshals I found 3 years ago...

The place mats are from Cost Plus.....

The Congac and the red wine are from my faux drink collection....

The green leaves I found at Michaels and were 50% off. I bought 3 large stems.

The Champagne glasses are my favorite from Pottery Barn.....

This candle holders I believe are fostoria glass and belonged to my mother, I love the elaborate design.....

Just a little sparkle is always good ...

The name tag on the stem of the pumpkin, I actually cut from the bottom of a (to go) menu....

I liked the colors and I thought they would blend in nicely.....They are actually pictures of baked bread........
I sure would have liked to have more large acorns with caps, where oh where to find them, hard to even purchase, I saw someone selling them on line from a google search, wow...I guess I am not the only one looking........

Isn't it great when things come together ....

The Decanters are from Ross. I use them as individuals at each place setting for water refils or sometimes one per couple. They can be lemonade or even Sangria, it's always charming and unique when you have your own...I love that the top screws down tight with a's an unusual fun touch that everyone comments on and seems to appreciate....I really like using things in a different way then it's original purpose I think it adds that litte extra something to each placesetting and makes it more special.....

I love the acorns in the large candle holders........

Have a wonderful celebration ......


Please leave a comment. I read every one and appreciate you taking the time to visit AROUND THE HOUSE..... Thank you so much Susan@betweennapsontheporch for hosting....
