Since it is spring break, and since I am in the middle of my 29 Day Gift Adventure, I decided to jump in and host the first luncheon. I’m so glad that I did. We had a lovely time.
I snapped some pictures before the guests arrived. After that, I put up the shiny red Kodak and enjoyed my friends.
The table setting was pink, not only because I love pink, but also because my china is pink. (Yes… back in the 80’s we didn’t have enough sense to choose a neutral pattern…I love my Shenandoah, however, and would probably choose it all over again if I had the choice.)
China: Shenandoah, by Noritake
Crystal: Moonspun, by Lenox.
Flowers: Azaleas and dogwoods, by God.
The food was deliberately light and all easily fixed ahead of time.
And do you see that lovely little bed of lettuce? It's a first fruit offering from our square foot gardens that I yakked about HERE. Right now, they are looking more like this.
Meanwhile, back at the luncheon...
Because we’re all dieting, I kept the dessert really simple. It’s a weight watchers recipe for pink cherry fluff.
Coffee and conversation lasted until 5:00, and we planned our next luncheon for the beginning of June. (May was intentionally skipped… If you are a teacher or have school aged children, no explanation is necessary, is it?)
Lunch with friends. My 8th gift.
