which is hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

For my first "Tablescape Tuesday," I'd like to share a birthday party we hosted for my mother-in-law in honor of her 86th birthday in February of this year.
The party preparations were a family affair and I had help from my husband, of course, my mother and daddy, my daughter Whitney, and granddaughter Avery Grace.
We decorated two tables, with the birthday cake and "sweets" in the dining room, and sandwiches, appetizers, and punch bowl set up on the breakfast table.
Relish trays were on the island in the kitchen, with my mother's set of "tumbling angels" tumbling through them ...
and it looked like the cake was on fire when we lit them ...
to blow them out, bless her heart, but it was fun.
She doesn't look 86, does she! ...
The vegetable dip tray holds my mother's "Curry Dip," for which I recently posted the recipe.
It was a pleasure giving this party for my mother-in-law. She is a beautiful lady, both inside and out, and raised five wonderful children, one of whom I thank her and the good Lord for every day ... my husband.
