This winter has been pretty mild but I am always looking forward to Spring when the sun is warmer and all the flowers, plants are coming back to life. If you look around you will see colorful wild flowers coming out, lots of blossoms on trees, the hills are green again, and there is definitely a change in the season. Spring has sprung and it is time to celebrate the hope and joy of a new beginning and also hooray for fresh seasonal produce which is exactly the inspiration for this dinner.
I wanted to set up the table with bring colors so I brought out my cheery yellow plates for a splash of colors.
I wanted a bit of contrast so I used a blue and white table clothes with spring motifs.
Basically, I am using mostly yellow and blue to make the table looks cheerful.
I love daffodils and they so bright and cheery. The Calla lilies (white) are from our garden.

I printed an individual menu for each couple. This is the front of the menu.
