Spring Luncheon Menu

My favorite time of year, spring often brings with it a breeze of luncheons, from showers to charity events to girlfriends getting together to catch up over a casual bite in the garden. Spring also brings fresh, sweet produce ripe for picking, and so of course while enjoying some lovely asparagus the other evening I became inspired! A perfect spring lunch for ladies (and gents!), here is a menu featuring refreshing iced tea, a crisp salad, and sweet raspberry kissed dessert. Also, if you fancy this menu for an event your planning and prefer to enlist the expertise of a caterer, they could whip it up for you in no time at all. Enjoy!

Wedding Guest Etiquette

Sweet and Saucy Shop

Hello dear readers! Today is the first day of spring, a day filled with the promise of beautiful new blooms, balmy weather, pastels and…the beginning of wedding season! Ah wedding season, a time when I’m sure many of you will be attending blissful nuptials of friends and family, and of course enjoying a nibble or two of the confectionery masterpiece known as wedding cake – yum! Weddings also come with their own set of etiquette (how glorious!), so over the next few months I will be publishing an array of wedding-themed posts. As for now, I give you a post filled with quick tips on how to be the perfect wedding guest. Enjoy! 

  • RSVP and do so ASAP
  • If you have an “and guest,” bring a guest, and if not, come solo as your fabulous self
  • Leave the little ones at home unless the bride and groom have invited your precious babes 
  • Greet the bride and groom during the reception
  • Send a gift, even if you can’t attend
  • If the reception features a seated meal, introduce yourself to your table mates and chat with them during the dinner; also if there are place cards, kindly sit where intended by the hosts
  • Strive to be punctual and arrive at the wedding ceremony and reception on-time
  • Dress appropriately: no white, off-white, or cream or anything flashy and distracting, and graciously respect the dress-code (i.e., a black tie wedding is a fabulous opportunity to get dolled up with men wearing tuxedos and women wearing formal dresses)
