A friends birthday was the perfect excuse to get together, celebrate & catch up.
Since we were meeting early, it was tea & cake for breakfast then lunch later. I was up early deciding on a table setting which is something I love.
I found a set of these game letters on a recent charity shop browse & they are just perfect for being random ....
Table setting for tea & cake - a vintage set with delicate flowers because the birthday girl loves roses ....
A vase of roses on the sideboard with some pink bubbly ♥
Candles lit in the window sill and on the table ...
My contribution to the morning - some South African / Dutch melk tert / milk tart ♥, freshly made at 5am ...
Pleased with the table setting as it is pretty without being fussy
The cake forks & teaspoons were gifts from South Africa & depict a settler monument - quite appropriate
The table cloth is vintage as is the crockery & they are perfectly at home with modern Ikea napkins
So the table was ready for breakfast!
Candles lit ....
.... and blown out
then time to sit back, catch up & enjoy the spread!
Lunch followed later at a favourite local pub - don't you just love that wall of gold framed mirrors?
A relaxed, day with decadant food, good company & good wishes - how birthdays should be.
Hope your weekend is bright & lovely, look in again soon & leave your blog details so I can return the visit
