love lilacs and lilac season and it's a good excuse to have company for lunch! We don't eat lilacs we just enjoy the heady fragrance while we enjoy a good lunch with Mozart or Bach playing softly in the background.
Not the Lunch Bunch but two other friends joined me for lunch. A simple table in quiet colors for the lilacs were the color on the table!
My grandmother's Noritake Marcasite plate, Jim's grandmother's cutlery, a goblet from the 20's, and great grandmother's placemats and napkins. (embroidered with her initials). I think they were her bridge linens for there are 12 and he always had 3 tables for bridge!
A crystal vase full of freshly cut lilacs -- the two French lamb molds on either side -- because it is the Lenten season.
Salad of mixed greens with rosemary walnuts and goat cheese
Ina's Lemon Chicken
White and Wild Rice Salad
Orange Roasted Asparagus with Orange Curry Dressing
Individual Strawberry Tarts
I should remember to charge my camera a bit more often -- as I was taking pictures of the table -- it told me that I needed my battery recharged. It had been a busy week . . . . .hmmm!!!!
But the food was heavenly and there were many "oohs" and "aahs"!
It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!
