A Lasting Impression

Our book club at church met the other night to discuss our latest read,

We have been so excited about this book and have gone above and beyond even taking a field trip
to the mansion. We even got to meet the author.

We knew we would have to step it up a notch to pull off a party only Mrs. Adelicia Acklen would approve, so Kristen filled vases with gorgeous spring flowers to grace our tables along with our book that we read . . . 

We borrowed three different sets of china from different members of the club to set our tables.

Our newest members lent us the lace napkins (from Paris) and the beautiful napkin rings
that just put the finishing touches on the table.

Our dear friend (as well as college friend of the author), Sherry Thompson, led us in a devo on taking care of our fellow sisters as well as entertaining strangers which is exactly what was done in this book on more than one occasion. We also shared pictures of the mansion with those who did not get to go with us on the trip.  These helped bring the book to life and deepened the discussion we held afterwards.
Of course there was food . . . 
Come back to see what we dined on and get the recipes!
