Tablescape Thursday HAK Fun!

I had a dinner party on Mother's Day evening. Please enjoy the photos!
I sent out printed invitations, that had little flowers, in the same colors as the table decorations.

Each guest received a gift basket with a gardening theme, and some extra goodies!
The gift baskets are in my post for Thrifty Thursday this week. Be sure and check it out.
I used my Christmas present from DD#2's family, the white Gibson dishes.
And of course Grandma Alley's silverware. Have I told you I have a place setting for 24?
I love Gerber Daisies!
Red and white napkins, every other one. And of course my wexford glassware.
I used the garden rocks that I ususally have out on the deck table to help hold the tablecloth on.
Who could resist a chocolate mint after eating? NOT ME!!

These are the lovely ladies who joined me for a salad supper on Mother's Day evening. They are representatives from the local, district, and state officers for Hospital Auxiliaries of Kansas. (HAK)
Join all of the other tablescapers and Susan, host of Tablescape Thursday, at the below address:
