On Monday, I stayed home to attend a lunch in honor of my friend Gail's birthday. My group of friends meet the last Monday of the month for dinner, but we usually do something special if it is to celebrate a birthday too.
Sally graciously offered her beautiful home for a potluck lunch.
Her table was decorated as if we were in a beach cottage instead of the heat of Bakersfield.
So much cool white with all shades of aqua. Even the flatware was clear aqua.
The centerpiece filled with white "sand", shells, and starfish.
Fresh white daisies and sweet votives for candlelight.
Cool aqua blue sea glass and glass stones.
I think my favorite was the jeweled starfish.
A closeup of a votive with tiny fish all around.
Shell napkin rings with a flower and pearls.
Plenty of Gail's favorite Tortilla chips with salsa and guacamole along with other munchies and strawberries with the best fruit dip I've ever had.
Sally made Turkey and ham sandwiches on Croissants.
Ruth made Chicken Pasta Salad.
Linda brought a yummy chocolate dessert.
Here's the birthday girl, Gail
Linda, Ruth, Sandi, Gail, hostess Sally. ( Cindy we missed you)
Enjoying our lunch and lots of girl talk.
Sally even made the curtains to match the beachy decor.
It seemed like only minutes until it was 3:00 and I had to leave to pick up the grandkids, Cade and Kobi, and make the trip to Grand Terrace for the week.
I am truly blessed with such sweet friends and family
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
