I had 3 very special women in my life over for lunch today....so I just had to share our goings on with you!
Meet my Grandma, Linda; my Mother, Cindy;
and my Mother-in-law, Ruthanne. :)
I set the table with a white tablecloth,
some vintage linen place mats and napkins that I
bought at an estate sale ( I love vintage linens!)....and I my new
Pale pink roses with privet berries that I clipped
from our bushes were used as a centerpiece.
Very feminine. :)
For lunch I served sliced fruit with poppyseed dressing,
curry chicken salad, rosemary cheddar muffins, tea,
& orange pound cake (not pictured).
Three generations. :)
One of my passions is having people over and meeting needs through food, conversation and a beautiful atmosphere. I'm grateful to the Lord that I had the opportunity to do this today because it surely blessed MY heart!
Here are some additional photos of my new white dishes without the food on them! They're called "Classic White" by Lenox and I'm really loving them! (pardon the poorly lit photos...it was raining today).
I was glad to find a pattern that came with so many pieces! Each place setting includes 1 dinner plate, 1 lunch plate, 1 salad plate/dessert plate, 1 bread & butter plate, 1 cereal bowl, 1 soup bowl & a teacup & saucer! I love the versatility of the different size plates and bowls and I'm loving how clean and classic they look. And funny thing, they are the EXACT same shape as the "Chirp" pattern I was looking at...only white! Only I got them at none other than T.J.MAXX. Love that store!!
