Circle of Friends Lunch

Welcome to tea this week my friends.  I'm linking with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, the host of Tea Time Tuesday and we hope you'll join us.  Sandi is celebrating a full year of hosting tea parties - thanks Sandi!
My circle of friends that enjoy tea, gardening and conversation met for lunch today.  Val, Jen, Marilyn and I decided to meet once a month and started in November, each taking a turn to host.
When we arrived at Val's the table was beautifully set with faux roses and chocolate hearts at each place setting.
The pretty scalloped plates were layered on top of matching chargers.
Mineral water with pomegranate juice and raspberries was served with a colourful salad.
 Followed by pasta and garlic bread.  Are you getting hungry?
The teapot and cups on the sideboard...we all elected to have peppermint tea with our decadent dessert.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll see what the other ladies are serving today.

  17. Hello Judith,
    that monthly meeting sounds like fun. And Val made a beautiful table. Pretty china and pretty nice food and drinks, and friends which are together for a tea time - nothing nice than that.
