Part Two of Mardi Gras on the Prairie
A luncheon for my "southern" friends
(Although I do have a native New Orlean and a native Alabaman and a native Louisianan, the others have "loose" ties to the South -- (like the "South side" of Chicago!)
A table for six
the Quaker Lace tablecloth
And because of the menu, the blue Camilla soup bowls and a package of take home Pralines
A simple centerpiece of a silver bowl full of purple and yellow flowers with greenery
And Mardi Gras beads down the center of the table
Hand colored menus
The dining room and living room -- all ready for company
And the Mardi Gras food?
Red beans and rice and Grandmother's cornbread
(and if you read grandmother you read bacon grease)
Bread pudding with a bourbon vanilla sauce
And as much as I like the anticipation picture
of the dining room before anyone comes
I also like the "after" picture
Showing a Good Time was had by all!
I'm sharing my Mardi Gras table with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday
I love, love, love all your beautiful and creative tables capes!!
Looks delicious and so pretty! I love your beautiful flowers. I couldn't agree with you more about the after shot of a great dinner. Joining you for Tablescape Thursday.
