As I mentioned yesterday, I do love my glass plates. This one has cherries embossed in reverse on the back. the cup may be modern, but I like it just fine. Purple glass is a nice color for a tea cup.
I have four plates shaped like dogwood blossoms. So pretty on the pink lace mat. And the authentic depression glass cup and saucer may have been a premium in a box of laundry detergent.
This plate is yellow, and I love the delicate pressed design. But I don't have a placemat that shows it off very well. Hmmm - things to sew. A white and yellow placemat?
The pear/ginger upside down cake turned out nicely. The minted honeydew vanished! The ham and cheese roll-ups went over like gangbusters. Maggie K brought chocolate cake pops that were too cute for words which is just s well because we were too busy eating them to talk. There were chocolate chip cookies to send home to the non-knitting spouses. And I used my elevated vase in an artistic way, here, putting a pink dahlia and a pink lilly in the raised part, then putting white lilies and another dahlia underneath. Oh, sometimes I'm so artsy I can't stand myself!
Lordy I do love these parties. I wish you could all come along. We laugh ourselves silly.
