The Lunch Bunch comes monthly.
I always enjoy looking for the perfect menu
and setting the perfect table.
They're coming today
And I'm still thinking of table settings for our December luncheon . . .
so I thought I would look at Tablescapes Past
and revisit Lunch Bunch Christmas luncheons
the last four years.
A golden luncheon -- gold tablecloth and napkins and a centerpiece in a blue and white bowl.
The plates are Noritake "Christmas Ball" -- not a planned purchase but a find in the bottom of an auction box that I paid $1 for. I thought they looked like Christmas balls . . . and alas, they do, although they were not intended to be a Christmas pattern.
A menu for each place, of course!
A green tablecloth and burgundy pattern napkins.
The centerpiece is a Christmas cactus (you should see it now) in a mostly blue Asian bowl.
The Noritake Christmas ball plates again, my German cutlery, a present for everyone and a menu with a gold Christmas tree.
A white lace cloth, Christmas napkins with red and green from Friend Sally and a blue and white Spode bowl as a centerpiece filled with pine cones and everygreen.
The Royal Doulton Tartan, Jim's Grandmother's silver, and a menu, of course!
Christmas red and white -- a damask cloth, red runner, and red napkins. The centerpiece is a vibrant red poinsettia.
The Royal Doulton Tartan, the hotel silver cutlery, and a menu, of course.
I enjoyed going back in time and seeing how the tables were set when The Lunch Bunch came in December.
I am looking forward to the Luncheon today. The menu is set but the table is not! We're eating in the dining room -- the plants have grown way too big and with all of them in the sunroom -- there's only room or 3!
Luncheons will be in the dining room until May 8 -- at which time the plants go outside!
