Why an End of School Brunch post in July? Well, it's very simple. I just got to it. And, I was putting together another brunch I did from last week and realized I never got to this one....soooo...here it is.
During the last school year I began subbing quite a bit at our boys' school. It was such fun! Being back in a school made me realize that I really did miss it. Getting to know the kids, parents, teachers and staff better was such a gift. Another gift was the friendships I made with the other subs. They are the best!! To celebrate the end of our year of working together, I wanted to treat them to a brunch during the final days of the school year.
Because I was working so much, I had to keep the table simple. The Enabler had given me the great toile cloth some time ago and I had been wanting to use it ever since. The plates are Spode Bowpot in gray. I've been watching for more on Ebay, but only see a cup and saucer ever now and then. The napkins are the same pretty embroidered cotton napkins I got at an estate sale with The Enabler. My silver is antique Gorham Chantilly received as a gift from my beloved Mrs. McGee. We had iced tea in the Waterford Pallas Iced Beverage Glasses and mimosas in the Target champagne glasses.
For brunch we had Quiche Lorraine, Baby Blue Spinach & Strawberry Salad & Scones.
We had such fun talking and relaxing together that time got away from us! It was getting near the time to pick up our kids from school so we had to end our time together. As I'm writing this I can't help but be a little excited about school starting back. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the summer. It is just that working with those ladies is such a treat.
Happy Summer Friends!!
