Saturday Luncheon for 5.....

Today my table was set for 5 for an impromptu luncheon.  
It's always fun to set the table for woman!

I folded the napkins into pockets to hold the silverware:

I used mini vases as place card holders:

I bought fresh flowers for my new water bottle (which you will hear more about at another time):

I pulled out my MacKenzie-Childs dishes...

...and milk glass "chicken bowls":

...and stemware...

I served chicken salad on romaine...

...and mini roll-ups and sliced fruit...

...and chocolate eclairs for dessert!!

We drank wine, told stories and had lots of laughs!

Here's Kathy and Jennifer...

and the 3 generations, Caitlin, me and Mom:

Good times.... and then Caitlin, Jennifer and Kathy were off to see the Luke Bryan concert!!

  1. Patti, your luncheon table is total delight. Great shot of the sun casting a shadow across the white linens, and the vintage milk glass hens are some of the prettiest I've ever seen. They look perfect sitting atop the colorful Taylor fluted plates. Makes me want to unpack my Taylor plates and set a table. '-)

  2. Patti, you need to add a "Pin It" button.

    1. Thanks! I usually have a pin it button, but doubted it was ever used, so lately I delete it! Silly me!

  3. Very pretty, it looks like you had a great day! Love the hens:@)

  4. How pretty, Patti! That looks like a terrific lunch, and great company. How fortunate you are to have your mom and daughter together with you - you all are beautiful together. I love that napkin fold!

  5. Sounds like such a fun time and I adore the table setting with the chickens. Too cute and yummy!

  6. When I saw your post on FB, I couldn't wait until you did a blog post! I wanted to see what was in the vintage milk glass hens. Love the table! My friends went to the same concert, and I'm sure it was GREAT.

  7. What a beautiful table setting! I love the colours. -Jenn

  8. Your table is beautiful and I love the dishes. Your menu sounds so good, wish I had some right now. Yum yum.

    Have a great week.


  9. Hi Patti, What a lovely table for friends to gather and enjoy being together. The linens and the MacKenzie Childs look so pretty and I love the milk glass chicken bowls. The menu sounds delicious.
    Enjoy the afternoon today……..
