  2. Oooo, to be seated at a table with a beautiful center piece, charming place card holders, sipping Cham Cham and anticipating the yummy blanquette de veau followed by potted pudding. Summer must nearly be here and I think you've just presented the perfect party plan! Happy Monday. Roxanne

  3. That potted pudding is the cutest thing ever! What a clever and adorable idea. Love it...have to try the cham cham and of course flowers are always a must have for any spring fling! Beautifully done.

  4. Love all Carolyn's lovely picks. Love the bud vases - adorable idea. Blanquette de veau is a favorite at our house as well and of course I'm always up for a champagne cocktail!!

  5. What an inspiring and fun post! Love the seed packet idea!

  6. Love, love all of your great ideas. I've already checked out the recipe for the veal stew. Looks delicious and easy. My kind of recipe. Possibly a Sunday Supper??? I've done the little potted pudding before. It got rave reviews. Thanks for all the inspiration. Mona

  7. Why am I not surprised that I love every single one of these ideas!!! Kate, you must know how we talk about getting you down here for some fun.

    Or do you just think we should road trip up to Boston?!!
