Tied up Memories was hosting a Table Setting Tour and this is my effort to get in on it at the last minute.  
I hosted a Blogger Luncheon of sorts today.  My first luncheon in 5 years.  All three guests were fellow bloggers…Can you guess who they were?
I am throwing this post up to participate in the tour but I will post “Part II” of my luncheon including the mystery guests’ identities and three FABULOUS recipes!  
But first, a little about the table.  Were it that I had dishes and linens out the “Waa-Zoo” I would be a tablescaping maniac but alas, my frugalness as mentioned before has provided me with a VERY limited inventory for setting the table.  What I am saying is it’s basically a choice between my Target “ironstone” and this gorgeous Orange and Purple German Lusterware tea set.  I love this set but never use it and I thought today would be the perfect day…OK if you look closely you will see real orange Lusterware underneath – I do have enough for 8-10 settings in orange but come on, how often does a girl want to set the table in Orange?  Let’s just say, they come in handy at Thanksgiving.
The “runner” is one of two curtain panels that I ran out to the garage for – I temporarily rescued it off the Vend du Garange pile.  The Daphs are from Trader Joes and the Croqs and twigs are from the front yard.
I dream of dramatic tablescapes with layer upon layer of dishes.  But for now this will have to do…and stay tuned to see how it did!
