I'm hosting a luncheon to celebrate my Aunt Jody's birthday Friday, so I thought I would give you a peek at the tablescape I am putting together.
My aunt was the postmaster in this community for years before retiring. I have invited the ladies from our church who live here in Balsam...
Some of them are only here in the summer as they live in Florida through the winter.
One is from England, so I have chosen to use my J & G Meakin "Romantic England" transferware with sterling silver flatware, "Louvre" by Wallace and Sons from 1893.
My aunt is thoughtful, caring and loves pretty tables.
So I hope she will like this one. The menu includes:
Homemade Chicken Salad on a croissant
Cucumber sandwich bites
Salad of organic baby greens
Fruit Trifle for dessert
Raspberry Mango Iced Tea
My mom makes the BEST chicken salad in the world and the best trifle. I will use organic cucumbers from my garden as well as a variety of lettuces. Then, I will skip dessert:-) Actually, I will have some fruit!
