Here are the promised pictures from my luncheon last Saturday. The event went very well: most of my guests were able to attend despite the delay of a day, and everyone seemed to have a nice time. My friends were very complimentary and appreciative.

The very talented Cherry from Cherry's Jubilee crafted this pretty "Friends" banner for me last year out of vintage papers. She also made the XOXO on the mantle

My tables had been set since Thursday night. The flowers arrived as scheduled Friday morning (despite pretty bad road conditions!). This is the table in my Living Room

My sweet neighbor and good friend Karey came over several hours early Saturday morning to help with last minute preparations (here she is pictured with her daughter, Allison, who is Dots's BFF)
