Entertaining is a part of Linderhof . . . . and especially at Christmas! We have three parties this week -- back to back beginning with a luncheon tomorrow for The Lunch Bunch, followed by dinner for dear friend Shirley Ann and her husband Jack and then on Wednesday, eight friends are coming for another luncheon.
And when one entertains . . . . the silver must be shining for coffee or tea is not poured from the glass carafe at Linderhof -- no, it is decanted into the silver pot (the short one for tea -- the taller one for coffee -- and the one in the middle to keep water hot) and for company the silver must be shining!
The tea set on the dining room table. Tomorrow luncheon, I'll pour tea from the tea pot for we'll be having tea. Tomorrow dinner, the coffee pot gets pressed into service for we'll have coffee and dessert after dinner and the Dolly Hollyday Trolley Ride which we'll do. (It's an evening tour to look at the residential lights in our little town.) Wednesday lunch, the service will be placed on the tilt top table. It's a buffet luncheon and so everyone will help themselves to coffee and dessert from the tilt top while the sideboard will be set up as the luncheon buffet.
It's Tuesday and so I'm sharing my tabletop and tea set with . . .
