A Birthday Party

by on Nov.04, 2011, under Other Lovelies, Parties & Gatherings

A very 1920s-feeling candelabra (snapped up at a flea market a few days before!)

I had grand visions of a 1920s-themed dinner party for my birthday.

But it’s really hard to capture the era’s glamour when you live in a green wooden house with white walls that screams “country,” when I need it to purr “decadence.”

I thought about buying oodles of crystal-y beaded drapes and hanging them throughout the house – so that my pals would brush past them at the champagne table or walk through them to go out on the deck – but I decided against it.

I’ve got a wedding to save for, dammit!

Walls of crystals are not a necessity, I kept telling myself.

Still, I wish I would’ve had them…

Everything is prettier under candlelight.

I grouped hydrangeas and green carnations. (I think those green guys are carnations...)

I dig this arrangement: The carnations pop up like prairie dogs.

Not all of the chairs are pictured here, which is good because the other chairs didn't look as fab as these pretty girls.

Dinnertime! (Or rather, "saladtime" in this shot.)
