Winter - Floating in Mid Air...

My table is set quite simply in a light woodsy theme.

Three girlfriends are coming for a quick lunch of Baked Onion Soup and Caesar Salad….

I am using my MacKenzie-Childs Camp Bowls to bake the soup and my winter dishes from Syracuse China for the salad:

The paper tags on the base of the stemmed glasses will also be used as name tags,  The glasses are sitting on glass star coasters.

A simple tall thin tree is sitting in the center of the table ...

…with candlesticks on each side:

The dishes appear to be floating in mid air on the glass table top:

A quick lunch for 3 friends who only have an hour break!

  3. Love your MacKenzie-Child pieces! Your table looks fabulous, especially with those gorgeous green touches. I am sure that your lunch was a great success!

  5. Oh my Patti! I saw that courtly check and IMMEDIATELY jumped over to your blog! I love, love, love McKC so much and this is just fabulous! Your friends certainly must've felt pretty special with your hosting their lunch on this tablescape. Visiting from Let's Dish. :)

  9. That looks so pretty! Very calming on these hectic days! Thanks for linking, and Merry Christmas!

  10. What a great way to entertain your friends, Patti! When they're on the go with only an hour for lunch, it's a lot nicer to enjoy a quick meal that is both filling and delicious at the home of a friend rather than to find themselves in a fast food restaurant! SO much nicer!!!!!

    I like those paper tags on the glasses. Did you create those yourself or buy/order them from somewhere. They seem to do a great double duty of name tag AND dressing up the stem!

    I've not had baked onion soup in at least 2 years. It is so good and pretty easy to make, so I wonder what's been the holdup there?!??!! Thanks for putting that bug in my ear...or I guess that would be in my eye! :-)

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, dear Patti!!! Take care of yourself!!!
