|Rene has a beautiful collection of plates and linens. This tablecloth is from the exquisite French label, Beauville|
I thought you'd like to see a buffet party I was invited to this summer welcoming our host's brother visiting from Zimbabwe.
|Flowers come from her garden.|
|They serve their own label, Belle Epoque.|
|Rene has never been afraid of color or pattern!|
Let's take a walk around, I'll give you a little tour.

Lamb Curry Khorma
Potatoes With Cream
Sliced Tomato, Beet and Orange Salad
Watermelon and Mint Salad
Cookies and Ice Cream
We sat outside at beautifully set tables with a view of the coastal mountains, I forgot pictures of that. The weather was perfect just until we were ready for dessert when we came in for shortbread cookies and homemade blackberry ice cream.
The Lamb Curry Khorma was soooo good. In the late 70s all my friends had the cookbook, San Francisco A La Carte from the SF Junior League. It was a perennial favorite and still is. They reprinted it in the 90s and looks like that version is still available here. It's one of my favorite cookbooks, still!
I hope you are enjoying going to parties with me! I have a few more parties to share in future posts. My friends think I am a little nuts as I walk around taking pictures (without people!) and posting them here. They very sweetly indulge my little hobby!
