http://cinziamazzamakeup.com/?x=farmacia-online-viagra-generico-200-mg-a-Genova The last two days were dedicated to the dessert I served at dinner with our friends on Friday night. Today, we’ll start at the beginning. The very beginning… in my tub where the menu inspiration hit me early one morning – in the wee hours when I should have been sleeping!

http://maientertainmentlaw.com/?search=how-to-buy-propecia-pills-fda-approved No, I did not have the foresight to actually take a tub photo at that moment, this was taken the next day, in fact the flowers were a hostess gift from Karen and Bob. But this pretty spot is where quite of bit of my inspirational thoughts develop.  So quite and relaxing. Nothing like a calming soak in the hot tub to clear the mind.  OK, enough of that… on to the tablescaping.

from online drugstore consultation brand propecia I wanted the evening to be easy, casual, and relaxed. Nothing too fancy, so I laid out a 1938 French grain sack as the table runner. Soft and pretty white and blue hydrangea blooms in square glass containers were the no-fuss centerpiece.

Along with a bunch of the Meyer lemons on a vintage transfer-ware platter. Appropriate, since there was Meyer lemon in not only the dessert, but in virtually every drink and dish I served, as you’ll see in the days and recipes to come.

kitchen papers

The real proof that this was a casual affair is the Cake Kitchen Paper Placemats from West Elm. I adore the entire line of Cake Vintage. Honestly, I don’t use what I already have often enough.

Cake Vintage collaborated with West Elm for a bunch of cool papers for the store’s new West Elm Market line of goods. If I won the lottery, I’d buy one of everything available in the kitchen line, especially the $2,000 retro refrigerator – it is all that cool!  The hardest part would be deciding which of the 10 colors of SMEG fridges to get.

Yeah, I got a bit sidetracked there… sorry. Back to the tablescape.


Atop the placemat I set one of my favorite dish patterns, Italian Tournesol, which Williams-Sonoma carried years ago and can still be found online at various sites. Mix & match flatware, blue and white bubble glass water and wine glasses, and rustic blue cloth napkins that I tied with fresh rosemary sprigs, wrapped into a circle, with orange tulips tucked in, for a pop of color.


This is how it began.
Tomorrow – two cocktail and one appetizer recipe….
