Girlfriends' Luncheon

This afternoon I had the privilege of having a luncheon for six girlfriends I went to Jr. High and High School with.  We've known each other for over 50 years, and always have fun whenever we get together.

I served a pre-Thanksgiving menu, and the tablescape was set for the holiday as well.

Place setting cards were attached to chocolate turkeys for the girls to take home.

We began  with Minnesota Wild Rice soup [sorry, no photo], then Turkey and Uncle Ben's Country Rice in Puff Pastry, Sweet Potatoes, and Cranberry Orange Relish, with savory rolls. Instead of hot tea, we drank hot spiced cider.

Dessert was Pumpkin Pie Parfait

The gift of friendship is a blessing all year long!

Today I'm joining Rose Chintz Cottage for No Place Like Home


  1. Oh, what fun! How lovely that you fine group of ladies have remained friends throughout the years. {I didn't have that luxury because we moved around too much.} Your table is stunning and the food sounds delicious. I would love a taste of that pumpkin pie parfait! Thank you for sharing your wonderful gathering with us and have a splendid week, Phyllis.

    Autumn blessings,

  2. What wonderful friendships! And what a wonderful dinner party!

  3. Your table looks lovely and the menu sounds delicious. What fun to host a group of long-time friends. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  4. Oh what a wonderful table and those chocolate turkeys! I just saw wild turkeys in Missouri last week everywhere but your chocolate ones are better!
