More To Come..........
You do have so much fun! I love the chocolates in the glass top hat! They look great!
How nice to toast Betty too. I would have gone for the Champagne because it's my favourite drink of all time! But I would pass on the cheese I'm afraid. The salad looks lovely and healthy too.
I love to see you Ladies Who lunch posts so much. :)
You always have the best luncheon menus.
BTW, I ran across an internet photo of Ms. Meriweather as "Catwoman" in the Adam West "Batman" TV series. Very cool.
What a yummy menu and having that special toast was a sweet idea. Another good thing about those walkers (well, the one a friend of mine has, anyway) is that you can stash things under the seat compartment!
Doesn't seem possible that it has been a year. We have to slow this time thing down.
That cheese sounds like something I would love.
Perusual a lovely bunch of ladies. You all always look so put together.
Yes--"More to come"-- definitely is your three words. Looking forward to the next post.
what a fabulous bunch of ladies who lunch you all are - gorgeous!
and lee meriwether! i have always followed her career - who could possibly forget her CATWOMAN - she IS catwoman - magnificent!!! as beautiful as always -
what a pretty table set for your lunch - now, i have to try that wonderful cheese you praise - better than brie? be still my heart - thanks so much for the intro to it - oh, and i confess - i also love butter on croissants! especially soft creamy real butter - yum -
thanks so much for sharing the lovely occasion - with thoughts of your dear betty!
have a great remainder of your hollywood day there, dear lady!
I always enjoy your posts, but especially the "ladies who lunch". Those precious moments with friends and you make it so festive. Chapeau, dear Naomi, chapeau.
Hiya NAOMI!!!!! I missed Seemah's Birthday??? So so so sorry...just logged in today and wow what a great surprise.
Please let her know that I am sending belated Birthday wishes to her.
How are you my dear friend, lots of catching up to do and sending cheers from Singapore you...MUACK & BIG BIG HUGS!!!!
Good evening Naomi!
The summer heat is finally abating in Phoenix and the evenings and especially the mornings are delightful again. I am taking a break from watching "Sullivan's Travels". I have never seen a Veronica Lake film. LOVE that hair of hers!
I also love these pics of your LWL. I get a real good look at my adolescent crush, Bridget, who again looks awesome and the gorgeous Lee. I checked out, "The Courtship of Eddies's Father", from the library and I watched it 4 times. It must have been one of Lee's first roles. She's Glenn Ford's secretary and has maybe 3 or 4 lines. All of us remarked how skinny Lee is in the movie. Seriously, she is like a size zero in this film! What a beauty she is. I always liked her looks. Very beautiful, but her beauty is intelligent and warm.
This is so cool that you ladies stay so close. You, my dear, look fantastic.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
I hope that this finds you well. Sending you love and light,
hooray, and happy birthday to Seemah and Kim!!
it really has been a long time for the ladies that lunch..but then again maybe that's what everyone needed so you could miss Betty without it being the whole soul of the get together.
As before, everyone looks so well, even if walkers have been added! I even see behind you with your toast glass, a "sweetie tree" :o) that added sweetie to the party for me! lol
thank you as always for sharing your good times with the ladies..after so long I feel I know them all...but you most of all.
I will look forward to more photos!
I love seeing your Ladies Who Lunch post so much!
How lovely to toast to dear Betty! I know how you and your friends miss so much Betty...
The menu looks delicious and the atmosphere of the Lunch sounds very nice and agreeable too.
Thanks for sharing this precious moment of your life.
I wish my friends lived close enough so we could do this. How nice.
Everyone is so beautiful and the smiles are high wattage -- a testament to the wonderful time everyone is having! Plus, the food! Oh my. :)
As usual, Naomi, all I can think of is how much I would like to be there with you and your friends!
I raise my glass to your dear friends who are still with you and to those who have passed. I've always loved the beauty of your LWL gatherings. Long Live The Lunch!
An excellent idea to make it a celebration of Betty. She wouldn't want long faces and the toast is the cherry on top - TT or no.
You all look well and happy and who wouldn't with that beautiful flower decked room and as for the food - I'm salivating and the best is yet to come I've no doubt:) Love the look of those goodie bags.
You are all looking good. I bet it was nice getting together again in the afternoon.
Your ladies who lunch posts always make me smile. It's wonderful to have those beautiful, long lasting relationships and to celebrate them. Beautiful.
Looks like a wonderful celebration! And the ladies see gracious and elegant. Good food, good company, good times--a winning combination.
You remind us how important and wonderful it is to stay in touch - and do it well.
I read your beautiful post on Marlene Dietrich and loved it. I also admired your beautiful bouquet of flowers for Ladies who Lunch with the unusual white flower.
Your post on remembering Bill Hunt was very touching. I also tried to find out about someone who passed at that time. One person in our corporation was on Flight 77 which crashed into the Pentagon. He had re-married in May but because of work they could not go on their honeymoon then and had waited to leave until Sept. 11. They were flying to Los Angeles then connecting to a flight to Hawaii for their honeymoon. So very sad.
At the Lady who Lunch that Cobb salad with croissant and butter…. looks delicious! I am pleased that you had this great lunch with your friend.
Good morning, Naomi
Another comment from me just to tell you that I really like you in red. It's a good color on you. That was it :)
What fun gathering, happy faces and delicious menu!! Cheers!
Lady of the Hills
You have the coolest life...you know Lee Meriwhether..i remember her as catwoman and she was on Barnaby Jones....I hope when I get a pinch older I am as youthful and spry as you are..zman sends
I love your "Ladies Who Lunch". You titillate us with your beautiful photos of beautiful people, situation and food!
What a lovely celebration Naomi, and when I first started reading I thought of dear Betty not being there and how you would miss her so. So lovely that you had a toast to her! I would love to try that marinated tofu, as I've never had tofu that tasted good! That Cobb salad looks so good!! I'm off to read the second part now. I'm behind as usual!! :)
Oh gosh I love your 'ladies who Lunch' series - I really do. I *love* how you made a toast to your very dear and much missed friend Betty - I am sure she was with you. I shed a tear when I read this post - I know how much you loved her and Betty was always such a hoot during your lunches.
It looks as if you've been having a glorious time with this lunch! I've been studying the makeup of the Cobb salad too. The 'fine chopping' seems like a key part of it. Like 'every part of a Caesar salad should fit on a fork' - only smaller!
I know this is very late but I had to comment as the Ladies who lunch series is always one of my favourite blogs from you,having been lucky enough to have eaten that Cobb Salad I know how delicious it is. So lovely to see you all toasting dear Betty, bittersweet but lovely
