A garden brings life and beauty to the table. - Alice Waters (via Talula's Garden)
This past weekend I had the honor of hosting a milestone birthday celebration for one of my best girlfriends! The birthday girl chose the venue and then tossed the reins over to myself and another co-conspirator to run with it. We were immediately inspired by the farm to table menu and cozy atmosphere at Talula's Garden in Philadelphia!
The solution was bright tissue paper flowers wrapped around colorful 'seed bombs' in gold flower pots that performed double duty as table decoration and party favor... and with the swipe of a paint marker could have served as placecards too! Similar instructions can be found from Martha Stewart. The whole table was visually tied together with a roll of gold web ribbon and pre-made dimensional flower stickers running down the center.

Both the guest of honor and all of the guests got a kick out of seeing the birthday girl on the day she was born, her 1st birthday, her college graduation day, her wedding day, etc. which made a great conversation starter! We all had a great time and great food - including the birthday girl's favorite: donuts and s'mores!
