Tablescapes, Sunflowers, Fish and a Birthday!

 

“Hey Gigi, do you want to play Barbie’s with me?” CC asked

“Hmmm…you know what, Mr. Rex is coming to dinner tonight

His birthday is in a few days, why don’t we set a special table…”

“Ohhh, that would be fun, I love to decorate!!” she said

 

 

 

 

“Mr. Rex loves to fish,

so let’s use our fish plates and have a fish theme,” I suggested

 

 

 

 

“And we could put birthday stuff at his place!” exclaimed CC

 

 

 

 

In no time at all, we had a festive fishy table!

 

 

 

 

We used sunflowers and a large hydrangea for a simple bright centerpiece

 

 

 

 

It was nice and low, so the conversation could flow!

 

 

 

 

It is perched on a fish platter,

with fish everywhere, all a scatter…

 

 

 

 

Fish are on the plates and glasses,

even the napkin rings had a fishy zing!

 

 

 

 

We put a birthday plate and pail at the place of honor

 

 

 

 

A garland of flags and a birthday hat,

Mr. Rex will certainly know where he will be sat

 

 

 

 

Candles on his glass and plate,

Just perfect for his birthday cake!

 

 

 

 

I highly recommend a tablescaping assistant,

Determined to make everything perfect, CC was very persistent!!

 

 

 

Juicy Details

I painted the fish glasses after I bought the plates and pitcher 5 years ago {HomeGoods}

Painting fish is easy peasy, an almond shape, and eye and a fin or two… just be sure to use paint made for glass, that can be cured in the oven to make it waterproof, like this DecoArt Glass paint here

  1. CC is going to be like her grandmother with her entertaining skills. I know Mr. Rex felt celebrated at this fun and fishy table. I can’t resist a sunflower centerpiece…it just makes me smile. Happy Sunday, Jenna!

    CC is a great assistant, but she has a great mentor! I went back to the kabab recipe, and boy, do those look good! HHjr may be the grill master, but sounds like he had a great mentor as far as recipes go! It is right for the Queen to perch on the porch for peace and quiet!

    CC is a mini-Jenna. How sweet that is for a grandmother! The two of you did a great job using the resources you had previously created and collected. (Lots more fun than Barbies.) You evenly cleverly dropped into rhyming couplets. What a delightful post for a Sunday morning.

    Oh how fun to have CC being your assistant and to share all the fun of creating. She is learning from the best. I’m sure Mr. Rex enjoyed all the details that were made just for him. Hope you have a nice relaxing week……

    In addition to liking the fishy tablescape, I also like that some of the photos are free of shadows from the overhead.
