Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

I am on the Teacher Appreciation Committee at both of Micaela's schools. Here are a few pictures of the luncheon we hosted for the teachers the week before last.

Some of the dishes and items are mine and some belong other belong to another Mom. We literally traded pictures of dishes through text messages on our IPhones until we came up with enough to coordinate in one theme. In the end, I think everything coordinated beautifully and we were really pleased with the end result.

Luckily we were able to set up in an empty classroom so that made set up a little easier.

Here's the table right before the teachers came in...

The menu was chicken Ceasar salad (dressing to be added), cream of zuchini soup, and homemade cornbread muffins with sun dried tomatoes and passion fruit tea. Robin was responsible for the food and she did a great job.

I've had these wicker chargers since 2003, got 12 of them at Target and this was the first time I really used them. The multi colored dot flatware was also mine, had it from a recent food styling assignment a few years ago. The dinner plates were Robin's mother in laws and they said Montgomery Wards on the back so you know they were 'vintage'. Robin made the runner from outdoor fabric purchased at JoAnns.

We tied bright orange tull to each chair and hung a pair of turquois flip flops for each teacher to keep.

The dessert table was yummy. These are gourmet strawberry cupcakes from Spoon's Cafe in downtown McKinney. These square plates are mine, purchased them at The Great Indoors many years ago and this is the first time they made it out of the box. We had a couple of other desserts, pina colada cake and fresh fruit and a chocolate sauce.

The teachers enjoyed it and we were very pleased.
