Welcome to Let's Dish! Thanks so much for coming, and thanks a whole lot for visiting so many entries! Please try to visit as many as you can.
Reminder! Tablescape challenge, April 18th! The Good Earth is the theme.
In the last few posts I "pastelled "my self out. :) I love them, but didn't want to get in a rut, so today...PURPLE! It is raining, so the light isn't very good!
I dug these out of my planter and put them in a reticulated pedestal bowl. They are at least 3 years old, and keep coming back! So FREE!
A pale green cloth is the base, it picks up the green in the pansy napkins. The purple toile pitcher was a gift
A lavender charger, CTS, purple plate, part of my birthday gift from The Tablescaper, white reticulated salad, CTS, and purple soup from HG.
Light green swirl flatware from CTS, butter domes from WSonoma Outlet.
Candlesticks are Mikassa, the amethyst (pale purple, I used the dark purple stems last week , see HERE ) stems are handmade by Villeroy and Boch. I bought them when they were closing their store here in Southampton, heavily discounted.
I tried adding a green glass, but decided to go with just the purple.
On to the Foodie Friday part!
I bought the cupcake cutters to hollow out the cupcake so you can fill it.
I used the white wedding cake recipe from recipegirl.com. It is very good!
I changed it a bit, less sugar, and included the egg yolks.
I filled it with cherries, put the plug back in, dipped them in chocolate, and used the last bit of the whipped cream from Easter to top it.
That concludes meeting 4 of Let's Dish! Can't wait to see what you bring to the discussion this week!
Thanks so much for coming!
