Now, I must admit, I'm no domestic diva. And entertaining is not my forte. I have a hard time making things (food, decor, etc.) pretty. But I'm quite tickled with what I've come up with for this lunch for my buddies. A couple days ago I found these sunflowers at Trader Joe's and thus spawned the beginning of a vision...
Here's some of what I pulled together yesterday:
Recipes (including Heidi's Blackberry Gingerbread Cake), food prep, my idea page torn out of the Crate & Barrel catalog, preliminary dining room set-up, and assembling the photo cards I made them as a gift.
It's a good thing there's only three of us. Because I only have three yellow plates. Why only three? Cause here's the rest of the set (don't look at the crumbs on my shelf - I lack the pride and patience to photoshop them out):
I'm so looking forward to this morning with my friends. I just hope I time all the food correctly. :-}
