A Beautiful Sunday Lunch at Straddie

Tropical greenery and shells in a timber bowl sets the scene above. My gift to the host was the branch of Frangipani which I cut from a Frangipani tree in our yard at our beach house.

Each female guest was given a soap which was placed on their dinner plates.

Look at this beautiful setting - I love the bamboo cutlery and the blue and white tablecloth and napkins in particular, oh and the shell which is so perfectly placed!

Beautiful rattan pieces which Annie has collected over time.

A bamboo tray filled with delicious bites. Notice the pineapple head which is used as decoration on the platter was cut off from the pineapple which Annie also was using in the cocktails - so creative!

The cushions I had made for Annie late last year pictured above - all made in Ralph Lauren fabrics.

The breathtaking view from Annie & Michael's veranda above.

As we arrived Annie was serving fresh fruity cocktails which she handed to each guest in the most beautiful rattan drinking glass as above.

Yesterday we were invited to our very special friends beach house at Stradbroke Island (Straddie for short) for a Summer lunch. My friend, Annie is so creative and I just had to show you the beautiful scene she created for the lunch. Blue, white and orange were her colours for the day with beautiful blue and white patterned tablecloths, woven place mats and bamboo cutlery - not to mention the beautiful orange flowers, orange linen napkins and shells which adorned the table setting. Late last year Annie asked me to have some blue and white cushions made for her beach house which I have photographed above - we made them all in Ralph Lauren blue and white patterns and stripes with my favourite one being the Koi fish design. When we were in Hawaii over the holidays Annie bought the matching Koi navy and white fish beach towels - so beautiful. As you will see above her beach house is to die for!
