Birthday Creations...

Last week I promised I would share with you more of the birthday creations I’ve been busy making. In the past few weeks, I’ve had THREE 50th birthday celebrations. Here’s what I created for my friend Karen….

These dishes were the perfect color for her kitchen.

More of my glassware finds at the thrift stores.

I love the large bowl on the top.


The bowl is perfect to put vegetable dip in. I included a spoon to be used for the dip.

I embellished the spoon with a wonderful button and rhinestone. Just a hint of glam, don't you think?

I found this colorful ribbon and knew it would be perfect to add to my handmade card. It just screams Spring Time!

The flower and rhinestone were the finishing touches on the card.

This gift was for my friend Michelle.

She LOVES Red and has lots of gold accents in her kitchen.  Is this perfect or what?

This large mug works great to hold dip in.

I couldn't forget about adding a pretty spoon that I embellished.

I added a combination of glassware. The mug sits on top of a crystal ash tray and small parfait dish.

Did I mention that Michelle LOVES RED?  I had to wrap the gift with a  large pretty RED Polka dot bow. When I have a gift that has an odd shape and it's difficult to find a box for, I use cellophane and  always add a beautiful bow.

I made the matching gift bag. Inside the bag, I tucked a rooster tassel which I made.    

I Love to create these card for the special people in my life.

It has been wonderful sharing these special moments in life with me friends.

A handful of friends...
Give a heartful of Joy!

Hi Sherry. What gorgeous gifts. And your wrapping, cards and presentation makes it so much more special, as if it could be any better. I know your friends consider themselves very lucky to know you. I'm going to be 50 in April and I wish I could look forward to such a great birthday gift and a room full of friends. LOL.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Beautiful dishes. Are these "glued" in anyway or do they just sit atop each other. You have a wonderful eye, the cards are so pretty, the whole presentations is beautiful. Love the lampshade video, too. See you again soon.

Wow, pretty cool. I love the wrapped presentation of the last one with the big red bow.

Such wonderful gifts! You have a talent for putting the crystal together with such lovely china.
I don't think I could ever pair up the plates like you do, but I think I'll be seeing the glassware at GW in a whole new light.
I am curious...what adhesive do you use? And are the cups for dip removable?
Thanks for sharing!
