Pajama Party!

This past weekend, John went to Florida to visit daughter and newborn grandson. I decide to stay home because I know I will be in Florida a lot in the next few months for more grandkids' arrivals. But I am afraid to be at home alone at night, so I asked my 2 girlfriends to stay with me and they gladly obliged. John left on Friday.



I cooked for dinner and set the table for the 3 of us. We decided to just be in our jammies to be comfy.


The tureen is from an estate sale in Baton Rouge. I especially like that it has a matching warmer underneath.



I used my Bavarian Tirschenreuth teapot with an orange flower again because it has fall colors. The tea cups matched the dishes which are marked Ware Bak-in Crooksville 1238. We bought them from an antique store.






Angel napkin holders, cream linen napkins and bamboo flatware








The gold wooden plate chargers are from Horchow from way back and I added golden yellow weaved placemats.



These are photo holders but I repurposed them to hold the place cards.
I made the chicken slow cooked dish that Traci of http://thetracichronicles.blogspot.com/ posted. You can visit her to get the recipe. Both Debjani and Brenda and me of course, really liked it. Even though the dish already had rice in it, I still cooked white rice because we all like rice.


I baked creme brulee for dessert.

We also had strawberry zinfandel.



You see the table in the breakfast nook over there? I had it already set up for breakfast for the following morning.




We had Whittard of Chelsea green tea with our creme brulee.

There's Brenda and Debjani with all smiles for you!

After dinner, we congregated in the family room and sang Karaoke. When we got tired of that, we watched a comedy action movie. We had such a good time talking and laughing that we all stayed up until 4:30 AM.

Another lovely fall-like table, Christine. Are those vintage dishes? I like the not quite round, not quite square shape of them.
Have a great week!

Hi Christine,

What a fun idea to have a slumber party! You girls look like you had so much fun :) Your table is gorgeous and very autumnal. Those chargers are awesome, your new tureen is lovely, and that coffee pot is perfect for fall.

Your friends are really lucky to have dinner and breakfast cooked for them (creme brulee is one of my very favorite desserts). What a wonderful hostess you are. Thanks for sharing your pictures Christine, and have a great weekend.
