    Oh you know I love to throw a lovely party -

    So tomorrow at noon I thought we'd have a luncheon & housewarming party for Witz' NC home.
    Our color scheme is Willow Green, Light soft tan and Dark Cocoa. with just a hint of lilac.
    I've made a natural centerpieces with puddy willow branches, blooming white crab apple blossoms, winding grape vines, and Wisteria in a large 2' cut crystal vases - each table has one
    I've put a chocolate table cloth down and put a lovely tatted lace tablecloth on each table

    Our plates are a bisque color china with willow green bows- the silver ware is Godinger grape vine pattern, and the watergoblets and wine glasses are also crystal -
    I've covered all the chairs with soft white linen chair covers and willow green bows
    The place cards are scored and have lace punchout patterns - and are a light lavender

    The meal
    is fruit salad (honey dew, cantalope, strawberries, white and red grapes, watermelon with an optional side of sour /whipped creme dressing)
    Baked Salmon, with stir fry rice and vegetables - red & green peppers, beans, okra

    and for dessert - baked Alaska

    My gift for Witz and husband is a Butterfly Bush - and an Extra Large Globe Muscadine vine and hand made Arbor.....Butterflies are attracted to the bush and will bring you hours of pleasure watching the winged angels, and Muscadines will grow on your arbor for years to come and have a unique taste and are a treat to share with everyone.


    Welcome to your new home.......

    And what are YOU BRINGING????

    I'm bringing some outdoor cooking necessities---a cast iron pot, a large steamer, a propane burner, and some recipes for good old southern cooking.

    I'll bring some wrought-iron patio furniture, the comfortable kind, and an umbrella for shade. Gotta have somewhere to sit and eat that outdoor meal!

    If you see a salt and pepper headed woman toting a few bottles of Cutty Sark...that's me. Still under the weather so I'll lean up against an Oak trunk and enjoy the party from a distance. Hugs DDD

    With such elegant decor, I feel I must bring cucumber sandwiches and mint juleps. I'll bring some battery-operated pillar candles to hang in the trees and put on the tabletops, too. Strings of lights around the deck for when the party extends into the evening.

    Here I am!!! Sorry, but dragging this heavy Koi pond is not easy. Someone will have to assemble the wooden foot bridge that goes over it. :)

    I'll bring some Sweet Tea vodka and some other little sandwiches. We already have cucumber, so I guess I'll make a salmon mousse spread on dill bread and cream cheese on dark bread. And shortbread cookies made from scratch.

    Since we're having finger sandwiches, I'll bring petit fours for dessert. Iced in white with willow green and chocolate decorations, to go with Star's decor.
    Congratulations Witz. Wishing you and husband all the best in your new home.
