Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A November Luncheon Table

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.
