Fun, Fabulous and Fifty
This is a continuation of Spa Day celebrating my girlfriend's 50th birthday.
The ladies and I decided to have beverages, swimming (or floating) and luncheon in my yard. I set up the gazebo for the festivities and everyone brought yummy food to share.
I incorporated polka dots into the theme and got a piece of fabric in hot pink with black polka dots that I cut into a square and used for accent on white tablecloths.
I bought these white tablecloths several summers ago for my daughters wedding. I purchased them in a 2 pack at Sam's Club. They are a great bargain and have held up, I use them outside on banquet tables all the time.
My girlfriend, and my daughter helped me paint these glasses. We decorated them with jewels and paint. They served double duty as glasses and place cards. We personalized them with names and flourishes.
The were so fun to do and added a personal touch.
My favorite element was my long stemmed gerbera daisies in the center. I place them on mirrors to add a little sparkle.

I used black chargers, black and white toile dishes (from Target) and pretty black and white napkins.
Tammie requested chocolate espresso cake with chocolate ganauche filling.
Now head back to Susan's for more tablescape fun.
