Sunday Supper :: Ladies Lunch

This Ladies lunch was served al fresco on our rooftop, we scored a prefect sunny day - and the Jewels' menu was as follows :Fried Squash Blossoms stuffed with herbs, ricotta, fontina cheese and served with homemade tomato dipping sauce Chilled Corn Soup topped with smokey ham and fried corn bits Summer Pasta Salad with heirloom tomatoes,white beans, herbs, hazelnuts and parmesan Panna Cotta with muscat macerated summer berries

For decor, we displayed our students' work on the tabletop and hung these fabulous garlands from Ashley Meaders. We found Ashley's work on etsy - and it has also been making the blog rounds recently. These garlands - and all of Ashley's work is simply to die for, you can buy some garlands here, or contact her for custom work. Ashley sent us some extra flowers - which we used to tie the silverware with (great trick for a windy day). And last but not least the gorgeous calligraphy on our menus and a few other signs (coming soon) are from the ever-talented Betsy Dunlap. Betsy's work is whimsical and unique, without being overly girly - we thought it  was the perfect fit for this party.

We'll be posting all the recipes this week and next, so stay tuned....
