Ramble- Ladies in Pearls Luncheon

Following the Ramble Dinner on Friday night, the men went and played more golf... but the ladies got treated to a culinary experience in the Glassroom! Our Ladies in Pearls Lunch was completely different from anything else we have done for the Ramble. Instead of your standard plated meal, the Members and Guests were treated to a fantastic six course tasting.

In keeping with the "Pearl" theme, the Glassroom looked great with white and ivory. Ivory pintuck overlays, chair chair covers, and ivory satin sashes mixed together the different shades perfectly. With the fantastic weather just outside the windows, the Glassroom was set to impress!

For centerpieces, we used some white hydrangeas and of course, pearls! Being that the courses were going to be coming out on platters, we wanted to make sure that there was plenty of room in the center of the table. The result was very elegant, ladylike centerpieces.

The place settings showcased the elegant menu. I folded the napkins like this so that the ladies wouldn't know what their gift was until they opened their napkin!

Surprise! A set of pearl earrings! These pearls came from Love the Pearls, and we are looking forward to putting together a great event down the road with them soon!

The menu turned out great, both the paper version and the actual food! I used ivory linen paper and printed a lightened Bluegrass logo on the bottom part. (This creates the "watermark" look.) Then, the menu was printed on vellum paper and them tied with a little ivory bow to keep it together.

Here's a closeup of the menu.

Jealous now, boys?
