Spring Luncheon


This week's table comes from a luncheon I had at my friend
Barb's house.


She set the table beautifully for Spring and Easter in 
soft pastels and whites.


Her pretty placemats and napkins were the punch of color
while the stack of plates were white and glass.



The bowls were a new addition, she bought
just for the luncheon.  All of the plates and bowls were from
a local store called Four Chairs.


I just love all of the shapes that she put together and alternating
white and glass with all of the pretty textures made an 
elegant place setting.


The placemats and napkins
alternated colors.


I just love these bunnies that adorned the table.


Our friend Tammy provided the beautiful Ralph Lauren glasses
in a chevron pattern.



The fun placemats and napkins came from Home Goods.
The flatware was a gift from her mother.


A pretty silk arrangement fills the center of the table.


Rachel brought the bunnies which are also from Home Goods.
We get together in someone's home once a month and that
person chooses the menu and hosts the lunch.  

How fun that we can also borrow fun things from each other
to complete the tables.


She served Thai Coconut Soup,


Thai lettuce wraps,


and Mango Sticky Rice.

It was a wonderful lunch and I feel so blessed to have such
great friends (who are also great cooks and tablescapers and
are learning to photograph their tables!)

I will be posting this with

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
