A couple of week’s ago, Savvy turned 16 years old! I asked her how she wanted to celebrate and she chose to have a family dinner. Can you imagine a teenager turning down a party?
She couldn’t even decide on a theme! So I picked up a pretty bouquet of flowers and just kind of went from there!
I arranged them in this deep rose vase that I found at a yard sale last summer. I placed it, along with the 4 votive holders, on an oblong silver tray for the centerpiece.
The place setting started out with a white round placemat from the Dollar Tree. It’s topped with a silver tray, which is either from Goodwill or a yard sale. I’ve been collecting this size to use as plate chargers. The green dinner plate is from the Dollar Tree and the smaller white dinner plate is vintage Buffalo China, which was in a $3 box deal from the auction. Topping it all off, are the “chocolate” salad plates. I purchased them at a yard sale last summer but I have seen them, or one’s similar, at the Dollar General Store. I used pink napkins to pick up the color of the dots on the plate.
I chose the 1960’s Danish Modern flatware because the details on it mimics the design on the salad plates. To read more about that thrifty find, click here.
Well, maybe not exactly, but close enough! The brown or “chocolate” handles fits in perfectly!
Clear iced tea glasses and pink wine glasses complete the table. No, she isn’t getting any wine…maybe water!!
What she is getting, is chicken pot pie! Yep, that was this year’s request. She loves it and wanted me to make 4 batches but I trimmed it down to 3! She wanted to make sure we had leftovers! To see the recipe, click here.
