I love participating in Tablescape Thursday, sponsored by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. It's fun not only to share what we've been doing at Linderhof but also to see what everyone else has done with their table.
This is the first of two parties last weekend. A light supper before a caberet show at our event theater. Husband Jim and I like to entertain before we go off to the theatre and a light buffet supper is the perfect way to have a quick supper before the show -- which started at 7 p.m.!
A stack of my blue room plates, gold napkins rolled up and placed in a silver bread basket and another silver bread holder for the monogramed sterling forks.
What is any party without beverages and this party was no exception. A nice choice of wines with wine glasses handy. Guests could have their choice of both the glass and the vintage.
The table is ready -- beverages on one side, food on the other. The ham with little rolls and mayonnaise and mustard. An orange rice salad (served at room temperature) and a broccoli tomato salad (served at room temperature). Dessert was a cream cheese frosted banana cake.
We had twelve for this party and we ate with our plates on our laps in the living room or at the table in the breakfast room. Two guests, however, ate standing at the table, taking little bits and bites.
Be sure to see the post after this -- A Weekend of Parties . . . Party Two, Luncheon.
