Tablescape Thursday at Sweetladyelaine's!!!!!!

It feels great to be posting today! I am joining Susan at BNOTP.
Thank you Susan for hosting!

I have a special tablescape that was inspired by a wonderful couple in Buffalo. Thank you Dawn and Michael for touching our lives. This is a tribute to our friendship!

Dawn and Michael gave us the beautiful waterford crystal flutes and Christmas wine. Dawn told me she wanted a picture of us celebrating with our new glasses. I wonder what she will think when she sees this post!

This is our bar in our living room....a peek at our new house!

The flutes are Waterford Crystal. They are called Celebration!

I used a mirror that I bought at Goodwill and spray painted it with black & gold & brass spray paint. I love how the candle looks in the mirror.

A close up of the flute!

               The owners of our new house left a bottle of wine and the pretty crystal bottle stopper. You can see it to the right.

The vanilla candle I bought at the Christmas tree store and added the pop bead pearls. The little cake stand - Goodwill. The napkins are gold given to me by my neighbor, Shelley in Buffalo.

A better picture of the bar......the counter top is black marble with little flakes of color.

Thank you for stopping by....
Thank you all for your encouraging words during our move. State tune for more pictures of our home as I get it together.

Please make sure you visit other Tablescapes at Between Naps On The Porch.

Remember to praise God and keep Him first in your life!

Blessings my friends,
