Alfresco luncheon, No.3 in our series #romancingthehomesundays

 

A simple lunch with the neighbors I told my husband…lol it certainly took on a life of its own… knowing myself…of course it was not going to be a simple lunch!

 

I set off to decide on a menu, colour scheme and I knew from the get go it would be centered around our pergola and we will be dinning Alfresco!

 

Beautiful french ticking napkins, white hydrangeas from my garden and a simple wreath from an olive tree. I picked lemons from the veggie patch and lay a simple but elegant table setting. The perfect occasion to add a bit of bling… out came the crystal glasses.

 

My guest were welcomed by some wonderful award winning wine #Bonnievale crisp and absolutely yummy!

 

Tapas platter served under the grape vine pergola which gave all my guest a chance to chat and mingle before lunch was served.

 

Lunch followed the alfresco Italian theme, home made chicken parmesan. My very own recipe…

it was so delicious and totally took my guest by surprise at how fancy the meal looked.

Now on to the best part of any dinner party… dessert!

 

Simple and delicious vanilla pannacotta with berry coolie.

Bar raised, what on earth will I do for next years Neighbors lunch?????

I will post all the recipes for this menu in my next post…
