Lunch, Creamsicle Martinis and Pointsettias

I had some girlfriends over for lunch and play today.

We started with a creamsicle martini:

My mother introduced me to this drink.  It's simply orange juice and Pinnacle Whipped vodka with some whipped cream on top!

I served chicken and salad, quick breads and cheesy zucchini medallions.

My centerpieces were fresh flowers, some from my garden, in M-C Courtly Checked vases:

I served 3 types of quick breads (all recipes in recent posts):

After lunch we played with paints and I showed my friends how to paint a pointsettia table mats...

I am lucky that I have a lot of counter space to "play on"!

And here are our Pointsettia masterpieces:

It was a fun afternoon with friends!
