My Friend's Lovely Luncheon

Lauren of Pure Style Home and I had the most wonderful luncheon out on our designer friend Anne's beautiful screened porch. The table setting was charming and perfect for a September day. Isn't it great when dear friends also love design and pretty tables! Notice how Anne used 5 mugs for the centerpiece, 3 filled with flowers and 2 left empty. I've made a note of this idea to copy someday.
I couldn't not mention what was served. Grilled salmon on a bed of greens with new potatoes and a champagne dressing. Delicious.
I featured Anne's porch before here. There have been some lovely new accessories added that I wanted to show you.

A plaque purchased from Matthews House & Garden that Anne custom painted herself.

Don't you think having a meal in someone's home is so delightful? More relaxing than a restaurant...I want to have more simple girls lunches. This was lovely.

I love making a table look inviting. Loved the bird nest napkins and I'm intrigued as to what the 5 mugs said...???? The rose wine looks delish too with the salmon.
