Hello sweet friends!
My DD Alexandra is getting engaged this Saturday and we are making a reception at a beautiful restaurant for sixty family members from both sides; so I am very busy, but, Kathleen knows I just cannot miss one of her challenges and so I quickly thought I'd love to use my new Oriental dishes our siblings gave us for our 40th. Anniversary dinner party.
Trying to meet the challenge has relaxed me from all I'm doing and the guests I'm having; to the point of making me smile and enjoyed setting it with my new dishes, that are making a 'debut' for the first time.
Since they're blue and white, our fav combo, I also paired them with my red rimmed Oriental dinner plates.
With that said, here is my quick table, specially with my adorable Asian girls, that are out in town for a Chinese dinner.
I used to call them Christine and Chie, until lovely Vel showed up (for our luck), at our 'little blog community,' but couldn't make it...shocks!...maybe next time for sure!
|My two lovely Asian girls on center stage for "Kathleen's Ladies Night Out Challenge."|
|Love this floral blue and white pattern on the dishes.|
|The china is very thin, you can see through them!|
|Of course, the girls are having some Jasmine tea during and after dinner in this adorable mugs with lids.|
|In the backdrop you can see the tea setting in the pull out tray some antique pieces have, such as our Belgium buffet here... and our grandgirls love to play tea time on it too, lol..|
|Love the mugs with lids, which they gave us eight of them too, along with a bigger teapot. Here I'm using the smaller one mother gave me this past C'mas.|
|This small lacquered tea chest was my Mil's; she always had some jewelry in it, though.|

Here you have it, my "Girls Night Out Challenge at Kathleen's, Cuisine Kathleen."
