Tablescape Thursday--April Showers

A lovely Spring Luncheon was held with the theme of April Showers.
  The tables were decorated with lovely and colorful small Chinese lanterns from San Francisco's Chinatown.
Beneath each umbrella were three potted Primroses dressed in bright tissue paper.
One was on it's side, one elevated above the others and on sitting upright on the table.
They all were grouped closely and held up the handle of the umbrella.  It was a lovely sight with all the colors both of the flowers and the hand painting on each umbrella.
Little cocktail umbrellas were used on each person's glass too.
The Peppercorn Beef with  roasted potatoes and asparagus was delicious and enjoyed by all followed by a wonderful cheese cake and fruit sauce.
I am linking up to Tablescape Thursday and Foodie Friday today.  Check them out for lots of great table and food ideas.

You are such a gourmet cook. That food looks out of this world...as if it were created in some amazing restaurant's kitchen with a top tier chef.

And the tables are gorgeous.
