There is a group of friends known as the Tablecloth Fairies or Dish Divas, depending on the situation at the moment. One of the Divas has been especially busy and not able to participate in tablescaping lately.
Be sure to check out the other Diva's blogs for more birthday tables:

I started with a very cool 1950's tablecloth in a tropical pattern. And it includes chartreuse, dark green and grey, along with bright yellow and red.
Thinking about which dishes to use, at first I started with only the dark green Harlequin. But after looking at it, I decided to add some chartreuse and yellow.
Two of my favourite pieces: the casserole and teapot.
Cream and sugar have the same cone shape.
As does the sauceboat.
Harlequin's candleholders were discontinued before the 50's colours were introduced. But the yellow ones go well with this tablecloth, I think.
The glassware is a from a vintage set that also includes a pitcher.
Flatware and these atomic looking napkin rings continue the green theme.
Happiest of birthdays Rebecca! I wish you much joy today and every day!
Make a wish!
On the table:
