Luncheon Using Johann Haviland Brown Rose

I have not seen my friends for a while because we have all been so busy so I thought we should have a get together. After texting each other, we all decided on a luncheon at home.

Brenda always tells me how much she likes this china so I decided to use it for this luncheon. The set is a Bavarian china called "Brown Rose" by Johann Haviland.
The plate chargers are "Lace" I bought from JC Penneys about 7 years ago.
I used 2 types of napkin rings but somehow, the picture of the other one turned out blurred. But you can see it in other pictures, just not closer.
Pierced flatware from either Horchow or Neiman Marcus on line.
The goblets are Fantasia by Princess House. I have had them since I lived in FL and I just moved where I store them to be more accessible.
I made a lemon chicken ring. Everybody loved it that they all asked for the recipe.
My three lovely guests: from L to R: Noemie, Brenda and Maribel. John was able to come home to join us for lunch too. Luckily his clinic is less than 5 minutes away. The ladies all brought a dish to share. Yum!
For dessert, I baked a cake and made fruit salad.
A matching tea/coffee set and dessert plates
For an impromptu lunch, we really had a great time getting together and socializing.
Thank you for your visits. I always enjoy them.
Linking with the hostesses that I really appreciate also.

What a nice idea! Your table setting is beautiful!


Beautiful china for your lovely tea party, Chris. I love it in soft gray flowers. That r├ęcipe sounds great, I'd love to have it too! Lovely tea setting as usual with you my friend! Have a lovely week.
PS: I just saw a set of J.Havilland at the Antique shop but refrained myself from buying it, I guess I wasn't so crazy about it, lol!

This set is gorgeous and the meal looks equally yum. Luncheon at your house is probably much better than any restaurant Christine! I also love the chargers!

Ann Krucek said...

Very Pretty, I am sure your friends appreciate you hosting this gathering!! I love those "lace" chargers!

Haviland china -- really special. My mother had some and it now lives with my beautiful god-daughter. She isn't afraid to use it -- pancakes on Sunday mornings! :D The chicken ring sounds yummy. I'm sure everyone enjoyed the luncheon -- so nice to get together with friends. the coffee service is lovely. Happy Tea Day!
