pretty party: a lovely little lunch

You’ve heard me dream up little soiree schemes before (remember this & this?) Well, I’ve decided to pay a bit more homage to the joie of party planning with more regular scheming and a whole new category.. I hope you enjoy 🙂

With the beautiful weather we’ve been having, what could be more lovely than a happy little late-afternoon lunch. The decor would be casual – pretty shades of pink & yellow and perhaps a touch of gingham. White, classic serveware would set off bunches of pink peonies and the general feel would be homey and inviting. Though set inside, windows and doors would be open, beckoning the smells and sounds of a late-summer afternoon outdoors. The menu would be simple but the slightest bit indulgent: a summer garden pasta with fresh vegetables & herbs, freshly-baked bread that almost tastes like pastry, lemon cake & fresh blueberries and sun-brewed iced tea with just a splash of fresh-squeezed lemonade. Conversation would flit about in a random yet connected way, ranging from recent fashion finds to the astonishment that Labor Day is just around the corner…
