I want to begin this post by thanking our veterans--those who have served and those who continue to serve to protect our freedom. This is a photo of my sweetheart who served in Viet Nam. I am so proud of him.
My sweetheart celebrated a birthday last week. One of my granddaughters also celebrated her birthday this week. Some of you may recall that my sweetheart is a cowboy wannabe. I doubt that there is a cowboy movie that he hasn't watched. Our granddaughter is a lover of anything pink. So I had a combined birthday celebration for the cowboy and the princess
The place settings for the cowboy's table began with these cute placemats, which were purchased at local a church bazaar.
I bought the cowboy plates (222 Fifth, A Slice of Life, Cowboy) at Tuesday Morning a few years ago. For this table, I used a red charger under them.
A bandanna is the perfect napkin for a cowboy.
Mismatched Mason jars make a good glass for a cowboy.
These cowboy Whisky bottles surrounded the vase of decorative grass. My sister, Julie, gifted him with these bottles one Christmas.
Mexican food is a favorite of both of the cowboy and the princess. I used this divided plate (no markings) to serve taco toppings.
On the other end of the table, I used a cowboy plate topped with glass bowls for the toppings.
Here's a photo of the plate (Sky Ranch, Santa Fe) without the bowls on top.
The princess table is all about the pink. A pink plaid tablecloth, topped with pink tulle provided the backdrop for the children's table settings.
The only pink plates I have are these melamine flower-shaped dessert plates. All of their food wouldn't fit on dessert plates, so I topped them with a glass dinner plate. Pink striped napkins are secured with birthday ribbon napkin rings.
I wove pink and brown polka dotted ribbon around the edges of my white metal chargers.
Since the princess also loves ladybugs, I added ladybug straws to the plastic stemware on the children's table.
An ice cream cone tassel marked the place setting for the birthday girl.
Thank you for coming to the birthday celebration for the cowboy and the princess.
