French Provincial Luncheon

Good afternoon my dears,

I've had a bit of a blogging funk break. Most likely because this year has been busy, its almost July, and I have so many memories I want to write down and record. How is it almost already July?

At times, I can be a tad OCD, and can get overwhelmed when there's just too much to do or catch up on. So I decided to skip past our porch tour and my 33rd birthday in St. Augustine, and start fresh with a French Provincial Luncheon which we recently hosted.

Our tablescape was simple. 

I acquired purple ribbon and faux lavender to create a napkin ring holder.

Forget-me-not salt and pepper shakers, from my 30th birthday in Newport, RI.

Our centerpiece was purple candles along with faux herbs - rosemary, mint, and sage.

For our starter we had French imported mini-baguettes. I wrapped them with paper doilies cut in half from the dollar store, twine, and rosemary.

For our main we had fricassee. I modified this recipe I found on Pinterest from Delish. I made it without the chicken, since our guests were vegetarian, and I also omitted the celery and used peas instead. Because who doesn't love green peas?

For our dessert we had chocolate pudding, with white chocolate shavings and raspberries. I used two library books I'm currently reading, My Life In France by Julia Child and Picnic in Provence by Elizabeth Bard as a conversational backdrop.

The whole luncheon was too lovely not to share.

Including a memorial tribute to my Grandad,  Michael Idris Bird, at the end. 

Thank you for stopping by.
