Book Club

I was lucky enough
to host our book club in 

We met on a Friday afternoon and
drank wine and ate hors d'oeuvres .
Oh, and talked about the book.

The story is about a group of women in Kansas 
during the Great Depression.
The tie that binds for these girls is their 
quilting club - Persian Pickle is a quilt design.
Natch, a quilt runner had to be employed. 

As a nod to the Victory Gardens of the era, 
the centerpiece was vintage preserving recipe books 
and the bookends were a pair of homemade jams.

 Spring is just around the corner,
so Bordallo Pinhiero cabbage was
the go-to for the hors d'oeuvres bar.

Pottery Barn Limes runner with botanical napkins
from Gracie's Plant Works.....

...and Artland Iris wine glasses in clear and sage
on a botanical fern tray.

Fresh vegetables for the triple server.  
Snap peas, red and yellow bell peppers, and rainbow carrots
with a dill dipping sauce.

Such a spring tonic in the middle of the winter!

Naan with my homemade caramelized onion jam, fresh mozzarella, 
basil pesto, oregano and parmesan was popped in the oven for
a warm bite.

 A cheese platter with green grapes and blueberries.
And a smudged ceramic cheese marker, courtesy of my fat finger. 

The book?  Meh.
The company and companionship?  Fabulous.
