The Quilter's 60th

Pin It
The quilter turned 60, so we honored her by having some friends and family.
We used all vintage, to set the table.

None of it matched, but somehow it all did.

Carnival glass goblets, mis-matched tea cups and saucers, cute cream and sugars, china painted tea pots, an old quilt, (hand pieced and quilted), vintage hankies as napkins, and scrabble tiles for place markers. 

Homemade party favors from talented sisters. Lotion, soap, flower pin, and recipe.

We were happy to do all this for the quilter.

Parfaits with homemade granola and chocolate croissants.

Apricot cheese.

Scones and butter braid.

The quilter is our mother and we love her very much.  Check out her blog. wildberryranch.blogspot.com/
~Happy Birthday Mom~

Does this inspire you to use your vintage?  It doesn't have to be a tea party.  There are lots of ways to use things from the past.  Don't be afraid to mix and match, it looks prettier that way.

Everyting looks SO cute! Lori told me all about it and it was fun to see more photos. Makes me want to have a tea party, or a ladies luncheon!
