A Lovely Friday Evening Dinner

A local school held an auction, as a fund raiser for their operation. A couple who are school parents gave a dinner certificate for 8 adults, cooked and served by this couple. The couple who purchased this certificate last year at the auction, invited my husband and I to be their guests, along with her and her husband and two other couples. The dinner was at 6:30 pm on Friday evening, and what a truly memorable occasion it was. The table was so elegantly set with crisp white linens and orange, yellow and green accent colors.



The centerpiece was artistically created by the sister, of the lady of the house. It provided the perfect Spring flavor to the table.


The lady of the house on the right, and her sister on the left. Together they produced one very special evening!! Both of them are very good cooks! Both of their husbands and children had a part in the evening's success.



Dessert was served on the patio after dinner. It was provided by a wonderful local bakery with an outstanding repution. As the sun was setting we were served coffee, tea and all of these delicious desserts, while relaxing, talking and laughing, in comfortable chairs on their patio. It was an evening not one of us will forget.

That looks like a wonderful evening. What a beautiful centerpiece and dessert on the patio sounds like the perfect finishing touch. What a nice couple to offer to do this to help the school.

Thanks for your sweet comments today, Judy. I always appreciate them.

The lovely tablescape is almost a lost art in this day. Casual cookouts are fun too, but I love the table and china and flowers. A great idea for a fund raiser.
