THE ZEST OF A LEMON

Let's gather lemons 
 For a lemon party.
 Fresh squeezed lemon 
 For some cold lemonade
 To cut lemon slices
 To place in hot lemon tea 
 Some hot to cold lemon hits the spot
 Wonderful Maxcera china with lemon trees and lemon crapes
 A lemon centered on the plate adds to the ambience 
 Mixed green salad will be served with lemon vinaigrette 
 For a delicious entrĂ©e, lemon chicken will be served over rice 
 Lemon printed placemats placed next to creamy yellow napkins and napkin rings along with yellow handled flatware
 Hot lemon tea will served in a mug and cold lemonade will be in a green goblet
 Chilled water will be in gold stemmed  goblets
Hope this will inspire you to enjoy lemons hot or cold this summer.

Lets pop on Fourth of July

The Star Spangled Setting 
 already for us to celebrate
 our great Fourth of July.
 Tall gold and white candle holders with blue honeycombed candles tower above the centerpiece.
 Our family will be the center of attention for our feast.
 The beauty Spode teapot is placed on a cake stand to give it a place of distinction.
 The matching cream and sugar bowl are highlighted on the red and white runner.
 Each place setting is sparked by red, white, and blue colors.
 The white placemats with gold metallic stripes balances the patriotic hues.
 The gorgeous deep navy and white china shows pastoral scenes. 
 The famous Spode's "Spode Tower" in blue is encircled by the white gadroon rim. 
The charming cup and saucer with it's unique handle has a Copeland mark dating from 1880-1900.
 Contrasting with the antique china is a striped and stared goblet from Pier One.
 A touch of patriotism is exhibited on the blue napkins with white star ringed by an embroider flag napkin ring.

 Hope to be hearing the fireworks as we dine, our best to you.

SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

A few of my favorite things to do on Mother's Day is to decorate with flowers.
 Another favorite thing is candles and candle holders. The pink striped candles and golden candle holder add glamor to the table.
 A third favorite is love, love for my son and husband.
 The next favorite thing is jewelry and the theme of "More is More" is so true.
 Of course teddy bears are the gifts I receive from my son.
 Having Tea Time and collecting Tea Pots brings joy to me.
 One of my fun things is in setting tablescapes for us to enjoy with the china I collect.
 Lenox's Kate Spade pattern is called Nag's Head which comes in black and white to enhance the place setting.
 Grace's Tea Ware in the lovely rose pattern have accents of gold and black.
 Our current home has space to store all of my napkin rings, silver, napkins, and placemats for my table settings. 
Hope each one of you have a great Mother's Day and Spring weather to enjoy.
