Spring and brunches seem to go together.
Mother's Day Brunch
To celebrate Mother's Day this year
I invited two friends and their daughter's
to join me for brunch
A Spring brunch!
The table in the dining room set with a lace cloth
A crystal vase filled with Farmer's market lilacs
And on each side a wee lead bird
My Aynsley "old" Pembroke plates
Jim's grandmother's silver
Linen napkins in silver rings
Eggs Benedict Casserole
A Berry Good Fruit Salad with Tequila Lime Syrup
French Puff Muffins, Cheese Biscuits, Whole Wheat Toast
Chive Butter, Blueberry Butter, Strawberry Jam
Strawberries and Cream Cake
Pots of Freshly Brewed Coffee
The cake was the star of the meal:
Anything with strawberries and whipped cream has to be good!
A one layer cake, halved, spread with strawberry jam, layered with strawberries, then whipped cream, topped with the second layer
And the whole thing covered in whipped cream.
Garnished with a fanned strawberry.
We talked, we visited, we had a grand time.
It would have been perfect, however, if Daughter Sarah could have joined us!
It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.
