It's summer on the prairie and time for the July Lunch Bunch to come for luncheon. A Summer luncheon should be a summery table filled with garden flowers. A pretty new tablecloth of birds and butterflies to reflect the flittering butterflies and feathered friends outside the windows of the breakfast room.
Not the blue Spode, but rather my Grandmother's Noritake, Marcasite -- a great cream, white and gold pattern. I've added to it and love it for the cream, gold and white is always so versatile.
As always, a menu at each place -- this one in a note card with a picture of a wren on the front -- and the real wren came to visit the feeder closest to the breakfast room while we were having lunch. We thought that a fun coincidence.
The white vase filled with white daisies and green fennel is a Wedgwood piece given to me by a dear friend. The green in the fennel pick up the birds which are part of the centerpiece.
Favorite birds that usually roost on the shelves of the baker's rack in the breakfast room. Used frequently, however, on the table as part of a centerpiece. A long ago purchase from Nell Hills and a favorite.
The menu was full of summer flavors -- mixed greens with basil leaves and garden grape tomatoes with balsamic vinaigrette; individual zucchini tarts and lemon blueberry cake for dessert. Served with pitchers of an icy lemony green tea.
Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see what others are doing with their tables this week. It's always fun to see the creative tables that everyone sets.
