I really want to take advantage of the nice weather outside before it gets too hot. So, I try to have lunch out there with my mom, as often as possible. I already had a plan to get together with my friend Debjani in the early afternoon, either for some karaoke or jewelry making fun. I told her to just come earlier and join us for lunch, and just as a good friend should be, she naturally
Just a simple table setting here since it was a simple lunch, with no extra trimmings. I made a lemon chicken roll. I got the Pampered Chef recipe on line and it was easy, pretty and really tasty.
Again, I am linking with our gracious hostess, Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
I cut up some parsley from my herb garden to add to my centerpiece. See how long they are? I just grabbed the first vase that I saw and stuck them there. I just realized it did not match the table after I saw the pictures but that's ok, it blended with our tops, lol.
I bought the hydrangeas from the grocery. They are already planted now.
Just like I said, a simple place setting. I did not even use a dinner plate. I used charger plates with parsley though and an outdoorsy salad plates with bamboo borders. I could have used the matching dinner plates as the chargers but I wanted the parsley in the chargers to match my centerpiece. Besides, I had no time to think. This was another one of those impromptu luncheons. Pewter bunny napkin rings to complete the set.
Debjani brought wine, Moscato. It was so good. Even ma drank a lot and went straight to bed after lunch, lol.
We enjoyed being out there, eating, chatting and relaxing for too long that we ran out of time to make jewelry, but we sang, which is always fun too.
