Monday I had company for lunch
And it was nice to have a group for lunch once again
The lace cloth
(a estate sale find with several set in red wine stains that I got for "nothing"
(because of those stains)
A little soak in Carbona and it's as good as new!
I love lace for it's such a perfect base for setting the table!
The Aynsley Pembroke
It seemed appropriate -- and it does set a pretty table
Anniversary roses still holding up in a Waterford bowl
A salad of mixed green, blueberries and Rosemary pecans with First Watch Restaurant's Salad Marinade -- a poppy seed type dressing
Cottey College's Chicken Divan with white and wild rice and a corn Madeline
The Madeline shape is much nicer for a ladies luncheon methinks than a muffin!
Moist and Spicy Toffee Apple Cake
A perfect fall dessert!
Such a beautifully set table. A most perfect dining room. Food that looks delicious; from start to finish.
I love lace tablecloths, too....I used to use them when I had people over for dinner, more formal dinners. I often put a plain colored cloth under the lace, blue, green or red mostly. Do you ever do this? I love your table settings and your menus.
Happy Anniversary. It is quite the milestone. I love the story of your Waterford collecting. Sad that the prices have so drastically changed. I love mine too and use it often- Kylemore is a beautiful pattern. Enjoy them in good health.
Thank you for being yoou
