One such event was a simple "Ladies Day Luncheon" I did for my lady friends. It was my way of celebrating these two women in my life and to let them know how much I cherish their friendship. One of those women is my BFFL, Lori of whom helped me wrap the antique silverware the for the 60th anniversary party on July 17th.
The table was set with part of my collection of "Lady Head vases"...apropos wouldn't you agree?
These are from the 1940's-1950's and were used by florists as a promotional gift to get folks to come in and purchase floral arrangements. Back then they didn't really have much monetary value, but today they can fetch a hefty price depending on the condition, style and color.
I'm posting what I thought was a very sweet little table setting that day...
Enjoy, but please overlook the poor quality photos, this was in my pre blogging days and a funny little camera. Never in a million years did I think I'd be posting these pictures on the Internet:)
(please click pics to enlarge)
Lady in yellow the hat is Verna Mary after my maternal grandmother
Lady in the aqua hat is Joan Vivian after my mother
Below ladies are all named for significant women in my life;
Verna Mary in the yellow, Elizabeth Holland in green, Susan Faith in pink, Joan Vivian in aqua,
Nancy Jean is in blue hiding behind Joan Vivian with her back to the camera she was bit camera shy.
There is one lady missing, she'll be in another post...stay tuned!
