Birthdays are for celebrating, no matter how many years have gone by.
Whenever anyone around our house has a birthday, the first thing I do is set the table with a pretty cloth.
My husband's special day is in March and we recently celebrated it.
For hub's celebration, I used a blue flowered cloth we bought a long time ago in Mexico.
He found little wrapped gifties and cards at his place at the table.
Usually there are flowers of some kind, too.
This year, hubs got gorgeous tulips.
Their color was a cross between deep red and bright orange, rimmed in yellow.
The best part is that they came with the bulbs so after they go by, we can plant them outside!
For variety, I made an orange cake with orange glaze which was simply confectionery sugar mixed with orange juice.
We had a nice but simple dinner and invited our daughter, son-in-law and baby granddaughter to join us.
Of course, we all sang to the birthday boy!
If today is your birthday, wherever you are, Happy Birthday to you!
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL BIRTHDAY-CELEBRATING TRADITIONS?
