Tablescapes, Merry Birthday!


A lot of people think it’s unfortunate to have a birthday so close to Christmas…

Not me!



Having a December birthday has always made me feel extra special ๐ŸŽ„

Everything is Merry & Jolly with lights, ribbons, and sparkle…





I set a Merry table in the foyer for the guys and me




Tonight we’re going to decorate the tree!





ย The Advent Calendar says so

Ho ho ho!






The table is set with my favorite black and white





And lots of sparkling mini lights





Santa is there making things Jolly & Merry





With napkins styled like trees the color of cranberry!





Faux silvery packages sit on the plates





A cozy birthday celebration awaits!





I have no idea what’s on the menu





But I know it will be delicious

The kitchen is HHjr’s favorite venue!






See the HO pillow on the chair by the door?





If you take a closer look, you will see more





Hidden packages waiting for the wrapping chore

Oh, here comes UPS, there will be more

outside the front door!




I hope your December is full of holiday fun

And that your holiday shopping is almost all done

I hope that your home is a showplace, and not a Christmas mess...

And that you’re happy and calm, not full of Holiday Stress!






Tonight will be special, with my guys decorating the tree…

I just love December and Happy Birthday to me!

    Jenna, your rhyming and beautiful thoughts make me smile. A December birthday would be special. It makes for a festive time with all our homes decorated for the season. Love the black and white themed table. I know your tree will be fabulous after you and your group get it decorated. Ours is up and decorated. I made great progress over the weekend. I didn’t all I normally do, but enough to make me happy. Happy, Happy Birthday! You are a special friend!

  21. what a pretty table. Love the black and white check. A beautiful way to celebrate your birthday Jenna. How fun to have your special chef cook your birthday dinner.
