Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Ladies Who Lunch

The Lunch Bunch came for the July luncheon
The Lunch Bunch Plus One
for dear friend Priscilla came as well

The dining room 
in luncheon finery
Lace and china and silver and crystal

And Flowers
dark pink carnations
(the workhorse of grocery store flowers
But they echo the flowers on the china -- Aynsley Pembroke)

It's been hot on the prairie
so I thought a cold lunch would be perfect

A first course of gazpacho with a scoop of Tomato Sherbet

Pasta Salad with hot rolls

Lemon Frost Cake
with blueberry sauce
Frozen so it's cool as well

And goes well with coffee

I love the centerpiece which is reflective of the china as well as the birds on either side of the centerpiece.

Another very pretty table, and I love the way the china is reflected in the table decoration. I think a cool lunch is perfect for this heat wave!
