I had to use my lovely birthday plates - from Mud Australia - for my birthday lunch. Delicious Balmain bugs and champagne which I think should definitely start a birthday bubbles & bugs tradition. Pink glasses from Ikea, white flowers, and a sprig of scented pelargonium picked from the garden with the cutlery. Quick, casual, but very pretty.
The cloth is a piece of fabric bought years ago for cushions that I never made. I do find pretty fabric hard to resist. Just 1.5m x 1.5m creates a perfect runner for the center of the table, just the right size for a table of 4.
