I love Tablescape Thursday. It is always so much fun to see everyone's tables and it is so nice of Susan at Between Naps on a Porch to host the event.
I had company for lunch today. Company from far away from the prairie -- Montreal in Canada. What better way to show prairie friendliness that our own sunflowers on the table. And of course, with only four for lunch, the breakfast room overlooking the garden is the perfect place for lunch.
A bargain at Wal Mart a $5 a bunch, it took two bunches to make a nice showing in this blue and white vase.
As always, there is a menu at every place -- and the picture at the top of the menu is a picture of the table. A great souvenir for guests (and for me!)
The gold tablecloth echoed the gold of the sunflowers and the brown napkins echoed the sunflower centers. Blue and white dishes went well with the blue and white vase. The napkins were in our antique silver napkin rings as usual. It is always fun to use a collection.
The menu featured all the flavors of spring -- a salad of mixed baby greens, Chicken Marabel from the Silver Palate Cookbook served with roasted asparagus. And for dessert, a strawberry tart!
They lingered long, as company usually does at Linderhof.
