{Real Party} Ladies Luncheon

It has been such a busy, busy time for Bliss Events by Rachel! I'm sorry I have been such a lazy blogger, but I hope these pictures make up for it!

Yesterday was the Ladies Luncheon that I have been planning and it went swimmingly! Although it was for LSU purposes, I really didn't want to use the traditional purple and gold as the color scheme. So, I decided to focus on lemons with a little Fall instead! I had so much fun decorating and planning this little lunch!

This is the invitation that was sent electronically to the guests

My inspiration was shabby-chic so I couldn't do without the quilt and mason jars!

I made the place cards with lemons, bamboo sticks and little flags with the guest's name. I made sure to use the same font as the invitation so everything meshed well. These were so easy to make and really made a great impression!

The lemonade and mason jars really helped set the tone of the luncheon but the added blueberries took it to the next level! Gotta love those extra little details!

The quilt and napkins are Better Home and Garden from Wal-Mart. Proof you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to make great table decor!

The gorgeous flowers are from Billy Heroman's. They smelled fabulously and the lemons in the vase were really perfect!

I told Drake's Catering about my lemon theme and they came up with the perfect menu that fit right in:

Fresh Spinach salad, with sliced tomatoes, toasted almonds, and a balsamic vinaigrette

Tilapia Almandine panned seared in a lemon butter sauce, served with roasted new potatoes and whole fresh green beans
Lemon Mosse with seasonal berries

Everything was so tasty and all of our guests just raved about everything! If you can't tell, I had a blast planning this luncheon and I hope you enjoyed reading about it! Hope you all have great days!
