The Second Time Around…
In keeping with the theme of small intimate groups…I invited a few more Florida ladies to a Celebration of Winter!, based on a Frozen Theme Supper.
Either I am not too original or I am terribly smart. 🙂
I would like to think the latter, because it certainly made the second time around a lot easier… as I had already worked out the “kinks” on the first Frozen Theme Supper!
Please forgive “an almost repeat” of the post “Celebration of Winter”…the ladies asked if I would post this second group, and I told them, of course.
They might want this post for posterity…or something like that! 🙂
Or at least their pictures to show Waldo… they were here! 😉
I did change up a few things….I did knock it up a notch with the chowder.
So just as a reminder…(in case you didn’t see the first round) …I am going to show you the foods and the tablescape.
The table was set with Sapphire Blue Bubble Depression glass dinnerware (circa 1940) along with a different patterned glassware.
Duchess A. pointed out…that she received the very same water glasses for her wedding…which was 50 years ago!
Congratulations Duchess A!….You have almost caught up with the Queen of England….She and the Duke celebrated 67 years of married bliss, just last week.
(which is why you are only a Duchess….you haven’t quite made the grade yet! ) 🙂
I am just teasing, of course….Duchess A…(my special name for her)….is one of the best! She has followed my Blog almost from day one….and she is just an all around nice person!
Thanks, Duchess A.!
The second time around, …group of ladies….and the special names I have given them as I do all the people in my life.
In no particular order….you have to guess who is who in the above photo….Frenchie….Ace of Cakes….Miss Jane….The Mayor….Endora…and Duchess A.
You have probably wondered if I have ever been given a special name, and I am here to tell you …yes, I have.
Years ago …a dear friend decided that I should be called Amelia Airheart....obviously, because I learned to fly a plane and worked in Aviation for so many years! 🙂
But I digress…..
Last evening the group of ladies did follow suit and go out to the Secret Garden and we chatted a bit.
We did learn things about each other that we hadn’t known before.
All in all….it was good.
I am sure you are all getting ready for Thanksgiving….at least in planning your menu.
I have some great decorating ideas …Fall Decor Can Be Easy… as well as My Thanksgiving Menu and recipes, if you would care to take a look.
Perhaps, since Thanksgiving is just a few days away…you have already settled on all the planning.
Have a great Tuesday and don’t let the Holiday’s stress you out!
I am headed for my Secret Garden and a nice cup of hot tea!
No stressin’ for this gal.
Me….Amelia Airheart!!!!!! 😉

I am anxious to make the chowder also. It and all the other dishes you served for the frozen themed supper were delicious. Hopefully I will get time to try them all. With our new internet service I may not.
Thanks again my friend.
Thanks Duchess….and thanks for stopping by my Blog and the Frozen Theme Supper!
Let me know if you make the chowder and how you liked it.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!I know you are happy to have a reliable internet now! 🙂
It looked lovely, so much fun and such a beautiful table setting. Frozen is very much in with my young niece this year and frozen is the state of the cars in the morning… Hugs to all xx
Oh, my special dancing friend from across the pond….I do feel for you in cold weather…aren’t we glad when we have garages to park our cars?
The temp here right this minute is 80 degrees and a wonderful breeze as there is no sun and rain in the gulf moving to the east.
thanks for stopping by.
Hugs right back at ya! XXXX
It sounds like a great time, Kari, and your setting was lovely.
Thanks Sandy…it is always fun for me to plan an event like this one…and by having a smaller group it is more manageable.
thanks for stopping by.
