Hospitality has always been a specialty of my sister's life.  This week she hosted and served a special meal.  I thought I would share a few photos from the meal, especially since she excels in creating tablescapes.  The color scheme of her kitchen table was beautiful! 
But, the tablescape is secondary to her warm, caring,and genuine hospitality.

Her daughter(my neice) was the server behind the scenes, with a helpful spirit and a warm smile. 

Wouldn't you agree that this is a beautiful and colorful tablescape?

My creative, youngest sister helped with the table decor and was responsible for the matching favors at each place setting.
She is also responsible for each of these photos.  What a gifted photographer she is!

The meal was exceptionally delicious, especially the chicken recipe.

Another friend made this elegant looking platter of chocolate covered fruit, crackers, and bacon.  Remember a post that I did a while ago where I mentioned chocolate covered bacon?  Well, at this meal, we all had opportunity to try it.  Some liked it, some not so much.

I felt truly honored to be treated to such a very special birthday meal by such a gifted and hospitable sister and friend.
Since I enjoy art in many forms, I thought you might enjoy seeing this artful approach of serving a meal.

Wishing you joy on this Thursday evening!

Hi again, I'm wondering if we share the same birthday? Mine is March 29th. I also am curious about where you are located? I was raised and spent almost my whole life in northern Ca. but moved to Colorado 5 yrs ago. I miss the beaches and some of the flowering trees but not the traffic.
Thanks for sharing the wonderful lunch your sister held. Beautiful tablescape.
