Easter Ideas, but really a Southern Lunch! Book Club: Before We Were Yours

Book club!!

Have you read any good books lately?  Let me know if you have – I’m always looking for a good book!

Here’s one we just finished:

“Before We Were Yours” is based on one of America’s most notorious,  real-life scandals—

The director of a Memphis-based adoption organization,  kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country— HERE‘s a bit more info.

As is the tradition in my almost-15-Year-Old-Bookclub, we meet to discuss the book over lunch.

And lunch is always themed to match the book!

Our amazing hostess Susan treated us to

Mint Iced Tea,

Cheddar Corn Chowder,

Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches


and Hummingbird Cake!

And can you believe how beautiful everything was? (And even more delish than it was beautiful!)

She also gave us each a beautiful notepad as a favor….

And the dessert?

OUT OF THIS WORLD  Hummingbird Cake!

(A banana-ish cake with cream cheese frosting and pecans- YUM!)

And I was obsessed with her little bunny creamer….and would love one for my Easter table – let me know if you ever see one in a store…

Can you stand the cuteness?
