Garden Club Luncheon




I hosted my Garden Club 

for lunch on the terrace this week.




It was the perfect time to pull out my 

MacKenzie-Childs Flower Market Serving Pieces.




I filled my small MacKenzie-Childs 

serving stand with Courtly Check  

pots full of springtime blooms.






The Flower Market Enamelware 

is covered in glorious color.





The serving pieces inspired my 

choice of blooms in the centerpiece.




~ Yellow Daffodils ~ Lavender Carnations ~ 

~ Blue Delphiniums ~ Mixed Anemones and Ranunculus ~




I used a variety of plates 

by Spode and Wedgwood.




Vintage silver baskets 

held stacks of napkins.




The silverware was 

rolled within each napkin.




Wild Rice Chicken Salad

Mixed Greens with Fruit and Nuts 

Tossed with Brianna's Dressing


Blooper Alert:  
Somehow the kitchen spoon ended up in the serving bowl 
while the silver serving tongs were left by the side.




Iced Tea with Lemon Slices and Fresh Mint 

and a Tray of Thumbprint and Chocolate Cookies




I forgot to take photos of the tables out on the terrace,

but I used lavender cloths and simple centerpieces.






I used my MacKenzie-Childs fluted compotes 

and placed a preserved boxwood ball in each one.

This makes a quick, easy centerpiece, and no added expense 

since these are pieces I already had on hand.
