Wonderful Wedding Wishes for Abbey and Donnie

Happy Wedding Day, Abbey and Donnie!

My dear friend Becky's daughter is getting married today at the most magical place on earth!  Since the rest of us couldn't be there with Becky and family, the dish and tablecloth ladies (Becky, Candy, Daphne, Rebecca, and  I) thought we'd celebrate in our own way, by doing special tablescapes in the happy couple's honor!  OH,   and Becky enabled us a bit, by sharing some of the favours that will be used for Abbey and Donnie's reception: ivory Fiesta vases and tumblers customized for the happy couple with a magical castle on one side, and their names and wedding date on the other.  

I decided on a theme of  Lovebirds, using a wonderful California Handprints Wedding tablecloth from Becky.  The dinnerware is vintage Vistosa, by Taylor, Smith, and Taylor, with a few Fiesta accent pieces.   The birdhouse was a birthday gift made especially for me by my friend Doris's husband, Shep a few years ago.  The little bird salt and pepper shakers came from Tuesday Mornings.  I plucked the buttercups from the edge of my pond early this morning.  Did you know that in Victorian times buttercups symbolized cheerfulness and childlike wonder... and I hope that Abbey and Donnie bring both of those traits to their new life together! 

I hope you'll visit all the Dish Diva's tables, and share in our happiness for Abbey and Donnie.  You'll find the magic linky at the end of this post. (Thanks to Candy for all her support and wonderful technical skills.  We'd be lost without her!) =)  I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday, and Jenny Matlock for AlphabeThursday, as well.  The letter this week is H, which for me with this listing is for Hope you Have a Happy life together, Abbey and Donnie.

Congratulations and Best Wishes for a long and Happy life together, Abbey and Donnie!


  1. It's beautiful Elaine! I just love the buttercups in the bud vase, so pretty and delicate.

    Hoping the rest of the Divas sign in shortly

  2. Elaine, I just love it. The wedding bell tablecloth goes great with your beautiful dishes. And the buttercups in the bud vases are just the right touch!


  3. Lovely tablescape, Elaine! The delicate buttercups and design of the Vistosa go so well with the cloth. I'm sure the lovebirds feel your good wishes as they prepare for their vows!
