Love this day! Tablescape Thursday is always a day of getting lost for hours in the computer "progressive dinner" that starts every week at Susan's porch. I love all the inspiration I find there......however, this week, Mr. Mid-Atlantic and I will be heading to Atlanta for a birthday celebration weekend with our grandgirls. This week I've set a special table to honor Stella Grace turning 4 on Sunday and Molly Rose who will be 1 later on in the month (however we're celebrating both birthdays this weekend -- since both sets of grandparents travel around 8-9 hours to get there.)
We're having a special Birthday celebration in the garden with the "Birthday Fairies" and you're invited too!
Here's a special place set just for you.
I've set the table with fun girly pinkness (Nana's favorite color!). These pink napkins have a ring of special magical little fairy buds crafted by "Style Sisters". She crafts these out of very special buds in shades of pinkness, redness, blueness and whiteness -- sure to add a little touch of fairy magic to every table.
I've set our celebration table with pink, white and purple. Since our girls are little - I've placed the tiny fairy forks and spoons (Treble Clef hors d'oeuvre set) -- perfect for little hands. I also have "big people" flatware in the same pattern.
In the Fairy garden, of course the cabbage leaves are pink instead of green. (eBay)
Set on top of white Gibson (Gollum) plates. (Big Lots)
Pretty purple butterfly placemats are perfect for our garden celebration (Dollar Tree).
Pink paper napkins peeking out from our birthday cups -- to satisfy my two napkins rule - paper for the mouth and cloth for the lap.
Let's take a peek at the fairy garden.
I see a couple of fairies today -- they're getting all ready to spread some special Birthday Fairy Dust so our birthday girls wishes will come true!
They've even prepared some tea for the birthday girls in their tiny baby carrot and cabbage leaf cups. Care for a sip?
A magical dragon fly has arrived at our little fairy garden today.
I've found another little camera shy fairy hiding among the moss.
The fairies were busy decorating the garden with ribbons and bows to celebrate the girl's birthdays.
And when the sun goes down they bring out their little twinkling fairy lights.

A closer view of the garden terrarium top.
and a little peek inside. A couple of bees have joined in the celebration.
We've had fun at our Birthday celebration today. We're so glad that you could join us too.
Let's bring on the cupcakes! (Pink of course).
To see lots of tablescape inspirations, be sure to visit Tablescape Thursday with Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" -- it's always delightful to see what everyone's setting on their tables and there's always a place set for you.
See ya when we get back from playing with the grands!
