A friend for lunch

Yesterday, I had the wonderful privilege of having my good friend Camille Leavitt over for a sweet little luncheon at Christmas time.  A sweet little quiet break from all the business of getting ready for Christmas this weekend, when lots of family descends on us.   Here is a picture of our table.

I served spiced cider, sweet green salad, with pecans, raspberries, apples, cheese and a Raspberry vinagrette  with mini ham puffs and then after that, poppyseed chicken.  We exchanged gifts, and she brought me a darling vintage angel candle holder, with a bottle brush tree attached.  Vintage tinsel adorned the base.  I love it and now have it under one of my glass domes (cloches) and am so delighted to add to my bottle brush tree collection.  

I didn't get a picture of the entire tree, because the lighting was not right at that time of day, but here is the bottom of it and the presents.  I have another tree downstairs that I will post later.  Only 4 days until Christmas Eve.  I can't wait!

Hi, Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes my blog header is the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff. I graduated from NAU many years ago but still love Flag. This pic was taken the first weekend of Dec. We were on our way to the Polar Express in Williams.

Have a Merry Christmas. Your table is lovely. I'm sure your friend loved the luncheon.

You told me in a comment on my blog that you could not see the pictures....when you said that I could still see my pictures, even though now I cannot. I now know why and was wondering if you go to my blog and check my latest post you might have some advice for me....I'm so upset.
