Aging gracefully … Last year about this time, I wrote about it in THIS post. Well, I now have another year of practice behind me, so Renaissance Man and I threw a party.
It was just a little party because our free time is virtually non-existent right now (yep, still working on THIS “little” project) … and because, quite honestly, we’re pretty simple celebrators when it comes to birthdays.
All we needed tonight were a few flowers from the garden…
some fun new Happy Birthday goblets from Dollar Tree… I LOVED these when I saw them! They actually had two different styles, but these were my favorite! Can you believe they only had 3 of these — so obviously I’m looking for a few more!
and some casual dishes and napkins atop a favorite vintage runner… at the bar in the kitchen.
I played in the dishes while Renaissance Man cooked. Oh, yes, he did! How I got lucky enough to marry a man who knows his way around the kitchen, I’ll never know!
Grilled tilapia topped with crab, shrimp, and a parmesan cream sauce
I forgot to take a picture of dessert … probably because it wasn’t around long enough! At least this year we were smart and picked up two pieces of cake from a local restaurant for our celebration … instead of having to
waste eat an entire cake! I chose Red Velvet. He prefers Coconut.
If you’d been here to celebrate with us, what kind of cake would you have chosen?
I’m joining the party at Between Naps on the Porch. It’s Tablescape Thursday!
