I do love Country Living mag. I still have the very first one I bought back in 1982. I loved the outdoor dining room!
Happy Birthday! The table is lovely! Love the blue and the flowers! Wish I had a lilac bush! What a lovely idea, for two Birthdays to add the cakes all on one tray! I have tree in my family, with Birthdays close together. I done one big cake with two small cakes, or 3 cakes, thanks for sharing your cakes, I going to do this come July!

Are ya 1, are ya 2.....lol. You look so cute, so happy - just as birthdays should be, shared, celebrated and enjoyed!
happy year ahead!

That garden...to die for! Happy Belated Bday Eddie...Just know I was toasting you with a falafel in Jordan on the big day.

So glad you had a good time! Happy Birthday to you both. :) The party looks scrumptious!!!!

Happy belated birthday! What a fab party!

There is nothing more wonderful than friends surrounded by beautiful things and a fabulous view! I want to be YOU for one day! Happy Be-lated Birthday. It is the only day of the year you can claim as your very own. I can tell you had a wonderful time and remember...it's not years gone by...but years of wisdom you have gained.

Happy belated birthday! Everything looks nothing less than fabulous. Oh, and I want that shed.

Sounds like everyone had a great time!!!
Happy B-Day!!!!

Happy belated birthday!!

I cut the first photo out of my issue and added it to my inspiration book....I loved it the moment I saw it!

What a beautiful home they have!

Thanks for pointing out the Country Living story, Eddie! On my way to work this morning I stopped and stared at our boring shed and realized that sprucing it up is next on our "to-do" list. Michael & Thomas' shed is perfect inspiration! And happy belated birthday to you.

Turning a shed into an outdoor dining room, what an amazing idea! Thanks for sharing, such a wonderful post!

What a talented group of friends you have! I always enjoy seeing beautifully decorated homes and tables, so today's post was a feast for the eyes. Love that last pic . . . perfect! Happy Belated Birthday!

You're right about the punch of blue on the gorgeous tablescape. My eye was then drawn to the drapes. Loved the look!

Hi Eddie

Wow! Looks like a delightful evening in a delightful place!


Happy Birthday!!! I loved the pictures of Thomas and Michael's apartment. Has their New York apartment been featured in a magazine? House Beautiful?


Eddie and Jaithan-
Thank you so much for the shout out on today's blog with our Celebration Tapers on your birthday cakes!
What a wonderful surprise when I realized that your hosts were featured in Country Living and I had tabbed that article to take to the farm.

Hope all is well!

Love Country Living! The most recent issues look really fab. When are they going to hire you? xx

Happy Birthday!

Well Happy Birthday! and Rhonda too! What a wonderful little vision in the midst of the city! Amazing what some folks can do! Glad you spent the evening with good friends and great food!

PS My birthday trad is that we celebrate for the whole month you're born in, so keep it going!

Looks like you had a wonderful celebration. Fantastic home and the cake is worth driving to NYC for.

I loved the CL shed. The color is so pretty as is the garden. If only I had space!

Happy Birthday!

What a fun birthday at a beautiful house! Happy Belated Birthday!!

I adore Ronda and am so happy you were able to all get together and celebrate Birthdays!

That shed and those willow enclosed gardens made my heart skip a beat. Dreamy!
New and old great friends and a lovely dinner - Your birthday sounds perfect!

Happy belated Birthday to you, Eddie!

Hi Eddie, I went cuckoo for cocoa puffs when I got my edition of Country Living. I love Michael and Thomas' little garden"shed"! How very clever it is. Their garden also is gorgeous. Looks like you guys had a lovely birthday party at their gorgeous NY apt. Beautiful tabling settings and desserts tray. Belated Happy Birthday to you!!

You're one my favorite new reads...so glad I found your blog. Hope that I might be able to join you for your antique market tour in Atlanta this summer.

What a lovely evening you must have had. The apartment is beautiful! I especially love the chandelier which I would guess is Swedish.

The meal and the dessert look FABULOUS. OMG that chocolate must have been amazing.

We had the best time. Can't wait for lunch with you and Jaithan in the garden.

What a darling garden shed -- I'll have to check out the newest issue -- I love the thatched roof!

Belated Happy Birthday!

Beautiful table - the lilac is sensational - I wish you a very happy Birthday and as for that outdoor dining pavilion...total fabulousness, xv

It was a fantastic night - can't tell you how much we enjoyed finally getting to know you and Jaithan. Let us know when you are going to visit us in Scotland!

So much fun! It was so great to spend the evening with you and Jaithan. Michael and Thomas are just the Best! We must do it again next year.

Lots of love,

Your party looks lovely! I agree about Country Living too. I happened to get it as a inexpensive little addition to another magazine I subscribe to and love it. It has become one of my favorites with it's fresh breezy feel.
