Since this weekend, there will be so many July 4th celebrations, and by the next meeting of Let's Dish, the holiday will be over, I did a little pre holiday table.
I was having a few cousins over for lunch, so I went with a little red, white and blue.
It was so windy I had to move the table on to the covered porch to give us a little protection.
I used a red and white cloth from TJMaxx, sq chargers from the Pfaltzgraff $ day sale, $2.00, Red square plates from the same sale, 1.00.
Stems are from Dansk.
Flatware from HG, napkins from Kohls, and napkin rings from CTS, .25
Handled soup bowls by Hutchenreuther, Germany.
Simple centerpiece of blue hydrangeas in a white pitcher.
I just took a few quick pics before we ate, no time to fuss for a photo shoot! :)
I had to keep it simple, 3 men were dining there and they don't like a lot of accoutrements, :)!
We had baked clams, Long Island Clam Chowder, Spinach salad with apples, pecans, feta , red onion and
bacon. Bow tie and snow pea pasta salad and sliced filet mignon.
One of the desserts was an indiv white cake , cream cheese icing, fresh blueberries and whipped cream.
I made them in this pan by Wilton. Recipe here. I subbed 2 xl whole eggs and cut the sugar back.
Make a bunch of these and keep them in the freezer. Pull them out when needed for a great summer dessert filled with fresh fruit and whipped cream or some ice cream.
Thanks so much for your good wishes on our son and dil's 5th baby! I appreciate them!
Here he is, a few hours old! Eamon. A little miracle for sure!
