Book Club

Saturday was my turn to host bookclub. We discussed A Thousand Splendid Suns.

I LOVE this book. A must-read. WAY better than the Kite Runner.

In keeping with the book title, I decorated with sunflowers.

Craig surpised me the night before with a beautiful bouquet to add to the tablescape.

We had a smaller group this month, so I kept the menu simple, with garlic rolls, antipasto and make-your-own pizzas.

And what good is pizza without some yummy rootbeer?

Throw in some lemon pound cake for dessert and you could say it was a nearly perfect afternoon.

(I've cropped out my head, but I looked WIERD and this was the only picture of me. And I got this fab new apron this week. It's my blog and I'll be vain if I want to.)

I am blessed to have a life filled with so many wonderful friends. I hope if you're reading this you had some lovliness this weekend too.

Such a fun, lovely, and delish afternoon.

I hate to say, I was a space cadet about the "sun" flower tie in.. bravo! So darling

You all bless my life. To have something like bookclub to look forward to ever month is the hugest blessing.

Thanks for the recipes. I can't wait to make that salad. So totally fab.!

I totally agree with Katri. What a blessing bookclub is and all the friendships therein. It was a LOVELY day. Beautiful and SOOOO delish. Which, you obviously know, as I'm making it all myself, cause I can't stop thinking about it. ;-)
