Mother's Day Celebration

 Who knew that this table

could grow into this table???
I thought it was going to be all complicated
all I had to do is pull out each end of the table

and waaa-laaa
10 +1 place settings
for all my special mom's
and their spouses

A family gathering isn't a gathering without a kid's table

Breads and Cheeses
(my favorites)

This is the dessert and drink table

more wine...
water and soft drinks

more water...
this is so simple and has such a wow factor
just throw blueberries and lemons or limes in a pitcher of water

Mini angel foods cakes from Costco
with toppings-
whipped cream, sliced strawberries, blueberries, bananas,
Dread Head Chef's Strawberry Mango Salsa and Pineapple Banana Macadamia Nut Salsa

and of course, something chocolate
(and folks, it looks like bundt is just a part of our lives)
this is a bundt cake that my friend, Wendy brought

the main course..

A gift for all the mom's

Thanks to Wendy for taking pictures for me so I could play hostess.

I especially LOVE the staging of the HOT trivet behind the lasagna!

Just curious...
why this picture ?
