Dinner for my College Colleagues, May 14, 2018

I had entered this on my blog hoping to publish it in a few days from then, but my mother got ill and we had to fly to Illinois to see her, but she passed away so fast that we did not see her alive. We are thankful that she went peacefully and not suffer. She was tired. She was 2 months short of her 100th birthday. Rest in peace, mama. I love you always and forever! 
Anyway, we had very nice services for her in Illinois and now we are taking her ashes to be buried next to my father in the Philippines. 

I thought I would publish this before we left.

This beachy tablescape was set for my friends from College who visited us a few weeks ago.

I just gathered beachy stuff from around the house, mostly from the master bathroom where I have shells and coastal d├ęcor surrounding the Jacuzzi tub.
I used a fish net table runner instead of a tablecloth.

The capiz plate chargers were bought from Pier 1 many years ago.

Shell napkin holders
Starfish S & P shakers

I served seafood paella, salmon and grilled ribs and of course, rice.

And there they are..... my happy guests! We had so much fun reminiscing days gone by!

The desserts: macaroons and coconut pandan

Tea in my Nippon Toki Kasha tea seat

Thanks so much for stopping by. And thanks to all the parties I am I am linking with:
