A Birthdayscape for the Queen of the Tropics

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday with a table celebrating my dear friend Rebecca's birthday! (We won't tell which one, since I'm still older than she is...!!)  I used a vintage tablecloth covered with stargazer lilies.  My dinnerware is a mixture of vintage Fiesta, Vistosa by Taylor, Smith and Taylor,  banded rings sherbet, and contemporary glassware.  The candleholders are La Rose by Roseville.  The vase is blue Leaves and Berries by McCoy. The napkin rings are from Tuesday Morning, and always remind me of Rebecca and her love of things that sparkle.
The birthday cupcake is dark chocolate with an icing lily decorating the top, and was made by a local bakery.  Please visit the other tablescape divas as they celebrate Rebecca, queen of all things tropical!

Love ya,  and Happy Birthday, Rebecca !!


  1. Great birthday table, Elaine. I especially like the way you combined the Vistosa with Fiesta. The plate edge and the flatware look as if they were made for each other. And a real birthday cupcake, to boot.

  2. Really fun, Elaine. Someday, show us pics of your dish storage behind the table, please - or did you already and I missed it?!

  3. Roseville, McCoy, Vistosa, Fiesta, TST...what a fabulous festival of great pottery! The intense blues and yellows look great on that cloth, and the flowers and cup cake both look delicious! Well done, E!

  4. Gorgeous table! A fitting tribute to a Diva!

  5. Afternoon Elaine!

    Oh you did good, very good in fact!
    Love the cloth and oh my those napkin rings just have Rebecca's name all over them.


  6. Elaine, this is DARLING. Do you hear me? Darling! And all of that Fiestaware in the cabinet is just so HAPPY. Love it!
