More To Come.......
Hello Naomi! Beautiful flowers and I bet an awesome lunch as always, birthday or no birthday lol!
Btw, we are so happy that you like our gift and I am also glad that you managed to get it. I was so worried that it might get lost in mail. Anyway, my email addie is firstname.lastname@example.org
You are only one day older than you were yesterday. That is how I look at my pending Bday.
I am so glad you posted your Birthday lunch, I have been waiting.
You girls have more fun than is legal I think. I love the individual flower arrangements.
Is it just me or did those tasty morsels make anyone else think of John Wayne Bobbitt?
Your photos are amazing Naomi - those beautiful flowers and those beautiful faces. Seems like you had wonderful birthday celebrations and it was great that Carol came too. Van really is something else isn't he and the flowers are just amazing. Your photos are very pleasing to my eye too and I am not much of a painter but I do like beautiful things. I could look at your flower images all day really they are so restful. I also love the oranges that Seemah and Lee are wearing - its a great photo of them both too. Look forward to Part 2 - rest up and take your time. We will be waiting..much love to you xx
how beautiful everything looks.. but that comes as no surprise! The ladies all look fabulous as always.. how I love when you post the ladies who lunch and more so when it's birthdays! I will never tire of your get-togethers.. anxious for the next installment!
These LWL posts never disappoint!
Gorgeous flowers and I love that small arrangement of the single rose with a touch of lavender, just beautiful, what a wonderful idea.
Your friend look fantastic, so happy and cheerful. Looking forward to seeing more of your bday lunch.
I love Carol DeLuise and was shocked to hear what a great voice she has. She once lent me a tape of her performing in the London cast of "On the Town" in the part that Nancy Walker played on Broadway and Betty played in the movie and Carol was just extraordinary!
It's fun seeing photos of these beautiful women on a regular basis. Someone should write a screenplay for all of you to star in (called "The Ladies Who Lunch?").
P.S. Naomi, that program is on its way...gulp!
You have the best lunches - makes me wish I lived close by! Can't wait to see more of the day's happenings...
I'm so glad I found your blog - it's a beautiful, serene moment in my day. The flowers are such wonderful colors, and the ladies are gorgeous!

Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.....everyone looked so radiant and pretty :D What a nice lovely celebration and pitted dates with cheese that's something new :D
What a loverly, glamorous group you are!!! And what a glorious
You LWLs are the bomb!!!!!
Looks like a great beginning. I hope there are not many mishaps yet to come!
That last photo is just a wonderful shot. The colour is reflected in their smiles too.
I noticed in all your photos everyone is ALWAYS chatting along to one another. I get the impression that it's non stop chatting and laughter at your lunches!
What does Sweetie do when you entertain?
As usual, the photos are wonderful. I am beginning to feel as though I know all the women too (LOL). Lee is absolutely stunning in that photo. Tell her that orange suits her well. It is very much in style now too. I have a bright coral linen top I like a lot.
Don't apologize for taking a while to edit the photos - I'm patiently waiting.
Oh, and the flowers are lovely, also as usual. I love the little touches of lavender.
As usual just beautiful. I loved Dom and his son's Stargate series is a big deal around my home. How wonderful to have such good friends to share memories with. I don't know why fewer and fewer friends stay in touch (and I DON'T mean by computers on Facebook!) nowadays. Sad. You always do it up!
Lovely photos and what a good time I bet you all had!
Those little place-setting roses are such a neat idea!
What a beautiful Birthday Lunch!! All the F's...flowers, food, friends, fun filled laughter!!!! I'm so happy you had a lovely time, you so deserve it too...
The flowers must be so fragrant, I love the lavender that Van has tucked in between the other blossoms.
I had to laugh loudly at Arkansas Patti's final comment!
You ladies certainly know how to party hearty whenever a special occasion requires it.... and there are many many of those special occasions, I think!
Another wonderful birthday lunch. Good food, good friends, good times. Treasures all
That was great. When I see your friends sitting chatting and eating delicious morsels I find myself thinking this is Naomi's atelier. Gertrude Stein's atelier in Paris in the twenties had nothing on this. And the pictures and artifacts are all part of it.
I sympathise with the confusion of dates and the feeling of being over whelmed and am feeling so at present.
BTW Lee is first class at make up - the results are stunning.
Another wonderful Ladies Who Lunch! I would love I lived close by you to enjoy your very nice birthday's parties!
The flowers arrangement are stunning and almost I feel their parfum...
Looks all you had a lovely and nice time!
Many hugs to you all.
This is certainly a group of classy ladies. The flower arrangement and the flowers by themselves are splendid. What a great lunch you had – great company, great food, great surrounding - how lovely.
I'm finally here Naomi, and it was wonderful to read about your birthday lunch with the ladies! I always enjoy seeing all the photos and the wonderful time that you have when you get together with your friends!
The table is so pretty!
I'm going to read the next part right now!!!
Oooh la la and what beautiful women. It's great to see a new guest. And those roses!!!!!
I hope you don't mind---I just love to enlarge the pics and snoop around your home, enjoying your view outside and your many wall hangings. I always go straight to bookcases and wall adoranments when I visit a friend's home.
