Erev Shavuos - The Table Is Set

The table has been set. The greenery has been hung.

All that is left to be done is to cook the salmon and the eggplant parmesan.
The mushroom onion quiches, sweet dairy noodle kugels, cream of asparagus soup, cream of mushroom barley soup, classic cheesecake and cranberry cheesecake are all ready to go. I sure do hope that none of our guests are "lactarded" {awesome phrase coined by my dear friend Hadassah}

The hand painted dishes and monogrammed table linens, were a favorite of my dear mother in law and were lovingly cared for by my husband in his youth. They hold many special memories and add immeasurably to our simchas Yom Tov. The floral napkin rings are our own addition to this lovely tableau and have long ago become a tradition in our house as well.

What a gorgeous table. You're so inspiring. We're also having eggplant parm - though with fettucine and white sauce, sauteed broccoli, salad, and garlic bread. Chag Sameach!

Any ice cream ?

Looks beautiful. Hope the holiday went well.

My brother used to say my dad was a "Lactard". We thought it was funny. I would warn that since it is a combo of "Lactose" or "Lactaid", and "Retard", there is a lot of backlash out there about that word.

I love the mixture of colors of the flowers!
Do you have a dairy meal on the first night of shavuos?! Your menu sounds scrumptious! What about for the other meals? Do you serve meat?

Looks beautiful!
How does the greenery on the wall hold up by the second day of y"t?

The cedar roping holds up unbelievably well.
Even the FLOWERS did well this year.
The cedar also *smells* incredible!!!
