Luncheons for four are always served in the breakfast room. The view of the garden although not stellar in November as it is during the summer is still a nice view. A November centerpiece is easy -- the blue and white bowl filled with yellow, orange and green gourds. One of the gold tablecloths makes a pretty foil for the colors of autumn and the blue and white of the turkey dishes.
Turkey plates, my second set of 8, in blue and white. I use my Christmas china all December and reasoned why not use my turkey china all November. These are by Myott, a great find at T J Maxx early in October, and go well with my Spode Blue Room/Blue Italian.
Every company dinner or luncheon always has a menu and the picture at the top of the menu is often a picture of the table setting that you're about to dine at.
It's a simple table setting but a welcoming one. Luncheons at Linderhof are always long lingering affairs and this one was no exception. It is always fun to share good food with good friends.
