Lunch for my Girlfriends

Last Friday my girlfriends came over for an early lunch. I love to do this a couple times a year...but it is so difficult for all 3 of us to have the same day and time free. That is sad I think...because these are really the things that matter in life!


My theme was a garden party. The lace tablecloth is full of flowers, I bought it on the streets in Mexico a few years back. Then I just gathered things I own that are garden themed. You have seen many of them individually before. My beehive candle, the little bee candle, lady bug kids garden gloves, a lady bug tealight holder, a little bird sign, a little bird, my chicken wire cloche, and my flower pitcher with the ivy in it.


I found these bird napkin rings at Hobby Lobby. However, while using them I found out they are extremely heavy and want to tip over.

Napkins are from Big Lots and are Laura Ashley. Plain white plates from the Dollar Tree and my old round placemats!





The dessert of flower decorated cupcakes in the little cup planters.


Our lunch was a delicious, and I mean really sweet and delicious fresh fruit.


Broccoli and cheddar quiche...from Costco...and it is worth every penny....

Peaches and creme corn on the cob......It was really fresh and good too!

We had such a good time, talking....and talking some more. My dear friend Amy always does some little jobs for me that I have trouble doing.....this time she wiped down my chandies...and boy, they needed it!
Linking up to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to visit and see all the wonderful ideas....it will keep you busy for a week!

Hi Ceekay...

Ohhh...what a lovely table, my friend! I love your "Garden" theme...the table centerpiece is sooo pretty! By the way, I love, love, LOVE your tall wire cloche and the pretty flower seed packets that you displayed under it! You just couldn't help but be happy while sitting down for lunch at this pretty table! Love how you layered all the items in the centerpiece...so many pretties to look at!!! I also like your table linens...love those beautiful napkins! Such pretty, sweet, and soft colors...just perfect for a "Garden" themed table! The little bird napkin rings are adorable and I would love to have a set. I'm wondering if you could find something to attach to them that would act as a base...maybe that would keep them upright? Just a thought! Well sweet lady, thank you for sharing your beautiful table with us...I hope that you and your friends had a lovely lunch! It sure looked scrumptious!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design
