Celebratory Tablescapes

The past few weeks have been rather hectic
Time to catch my breath ......
just the 2 of us at home this weekend....
time for the garden........
time to catch up some blogging too......
and I thought I'd share the pretty tablescapes my family and friends put together for our celebrations .....
This surprise party was carefully put together by my friend Sharon.....all in the space of one week!

We were greeted by this bus in our driveway filled with about 35 of our wonderful friends......
I'm still recovering from the shock.......

And driven in style to this stunning venue..........

 Great food.......

     But even better company....

The Queen of Party Planning and all the "Mardi Gras" people of the evening.......

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!


Hop along to Rose Chintz Cottage and Tablescape Thursdays to check out all the great tables.
