I attended a lovely luncheon in honor of my friend Fiona's mom's birthday. May arrived for her annual visit in December, and will be visiting Fiona and Steve until the end of March. Her home is in Wales, so she is enjoying our mild winter climate! I know this is hard to believe, as she is peppy, fun, lively, and quick, but May is celebrating 88 years!
Fiona used a Valentine's Day theme for all of the festivities. Here are some gorgeous appetizers.
21 women enjoyed the lovely luncheon. Champagne flowed freely, and the weather was 76 degrees, so, some of us ate on the patio. The menu included salad with pine nuts and mandarine oranges, quiches, chicken salad, fruit, couscous, smoked salmon, and asparagas! The Valentine theme made a fun buffet table!
The heart-shaped quiches were a hit! The first was artichoke, and the second was corn, and red pepper!
Dessert??? Of COURSE!
May, Happy Birthday, and many, many more visits to the desert!
