On Sunday we had a family get-together to celebrate my birthday which was last Wednesday. My youngest sister hosted it at her home. Her son and daughter put out balloons on the mailbox and on the back fence near the pool. (The balloons are somewhat deflated since I didn't take the photos till the next afternoon.)
The family attending included my mother, her sister, my sister, husband, son and daughter, brother-in-law’s aunt, and from out of town another sister and brother-in-law. They arrived in Massachusetts from their home in Florida early Sunday morning.
Several stainless steel chafing dishes kept the food hot on the kitchen table:

On a white tablecloth were pretty summery ceramic plates and handpainted goblets. Gilt frames as place cards and gold flatware were joined by white napkins in napkin rings to complete the settings.
Just before we sat down, I took a quick photo overview of table. Note the three candelabras as the centerpiece:
