Christmas Luncheon for Blogger Friends

Okay, me again! As I said in my last post, I had Bernideen and Janice over for a luncheon.



And before I go on, could I just tell you what precious friends and people these ladies are. I feel so very blessed to know them and have them in my life.

The table is pretty much set like it was for yesterday's luncheon...



except I used the Friendly Village china today.



I served potato soup, bread, salad and for dessert I made a buche de noel cake.




Janice rocked and sang lullaby's to Lacey...



as the caroler's sang in the powder room, a gift from Bernideen. 



We had great fun, but alas it was time for my dear friends to depart and the decked out halls are all that's left...




until the kids and hubby come home, that is! :) 
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas!

  14. Gina, it looks so pretty and looks like y'all were having a great time! Did y'all meet through blogging, or know each other before? The table looks so pretty and I sure do love "tater" soup! LOL I will go look up that townhouse you told me about, that is very interesting! Maybe they used the same plans??
