Caroline's Ladies Luncheon, Part II

Now it is time for the food portion of Caroline's eleventh birthday party. If you want to review yesterday's post, you can see all the pretty vintage tea table settings Caroline and Kimberlee put together. Kimberlee made all the food herself and everything turned out delicious! And keep in mind, most of the serving pieces and place settings are thrifted and antiqued. Don't you just love seeing thrift store finds in action?

The menu included strawberries, raspberries, and almonds mixed together with a ricotta topping to the left. This is a beautiful side dish that is perfect for any sort of shower or ladies event. 


 We also had mini tomato and asparagus quiches. Don't you love the pretty petal shaped crusts?


My favorite part of the meal was the cucumber sandwiches. I kept going back for more.


Kimberlee also made ham biscuits with peach preserves. While I don't normally like sweet on my foods, the flavor combo was actually really good.


Kimberlee served a colorful pasta salad with vegetables. You can always count on Kimberlee trying to sneak more vitamins into our meal.


My plate was so colorful! Mom always reminds me that for a meal to be attractive, you must have more than one color on the plate.


The cake was lemony delicious. I like how even Caroline's cake fit the vintage theme. When she was younger, she used to ask my mom to make her a pineapple upside down cake for her birthday party. This girl has been retro before she even knew it was a thing. Happy birthday, Caroline!
