Fall Blogging Luncheon

Today was one of those kind of days that filled me with joy. Why? Because I spent the afternoon in great company. Blogging company!

This afternoon was very special. Trina from Tea Time with Trina blog hosted a Fall luncheon for some of the Salt Lake, Utah bloggers. We had an amazing time.

Trina party

The first time that we got together was in June at Jann from Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson’s beautiful home.  We all seemed to really mesh and had so many things in-common especially the love of blogging, and vintage wares.

I just had to show you the table setting that Trina set for our luncheon. The theme was Fall and apples. On every ones plate was a jar of her homemade apple butter to take home. Trina was the perfect hostess.

Trina fixed an amazing pear vinaigrette salad, fresh rolls, with homemade apple butter, and butternut squash soup. Of course there was apple slices, grapes and cheese to piece on before lunch. She made an awesome Fall drink out of apple juice, mint leaves and cream soda. Yum! Trina topped it all off with apple crisp topped with vanilla ice cream. Talk about a wonderful Fall lunch. It was so delicious! I felt spoiled!

Here we are all talking all at once. It’s so wonderful to gather with friends that you have so much in common with. So many fun stories were told over that beautifully set table. Trina sent us all home with a wonderful apple shaped sugar cookie and caramel apple. I felt really blessed to be in such wonderful company as these wonderful talented ladies.

Above is Joanne, she has a site on Instagram, Jann, Ann who is Jann’s best friend, Paula from Pollyanna Reinvents blog, Trina at the head and me with the red sunglasses. lol I was taking pictures.

I wish that I had taken more pictures but there was just too much to talk about! If some of these blogs are new to you stop over and introduce yourself. You will come to adore them as I do.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. What a fabulous idea, when I get to more local (Chicagoland) bloggers, I will have to host a luncheon…such a great idea to talk face to face. Loving your idea, and what a great Fall table.
    Thanks for the inspiration, Sandi.

  6. Oh how fun! That’s such a good idea to have a luncheon with blogging friends. I went to one years ago and really enjoyed it. It’s a great way to meet others that you may not know yet too. Her meal sounded delicious and so well thought out for the season!


  7. You lucky girl, you! What a joy to be able to meet up with these lovely ladies again 🙂 Thanks for sharing your sweet time with us. Hugs to you!


  8. Oh my, how did I miss this post? You are such a doll. I absolutely love the conversation photo you put together, do you mind if I print it off for my keepsake (scrapbook)? Jo, you are one special lady, I feel truly blessed to call you my friend. Looking forward to our next meet-up, and yes, my witches broom will be at your doorstep.


    • Hi Trina, I am looking forward to our witchy ride. You can print off anything you like. We didn’t get around to taking many pictures we were just really enjoying being together and loving the wonderful atmosphere. Have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Jo
