A Spring Meeting and Diana Vreeland

We set out light refreshments at my ladies’ study club meetings. Yesterday was my turn to host.

We learned about Diana Vreeland.

Our topic this year has been “Legendary Ladies of Style.”

It was also our topic last year, we just loved it so much we kept going!

Babe Paley, Dorothy Draper, Gloria Vanderbilt, Marella Agnelli, Lee Radziwill to name a few.

Someone said, Ellen, you should take pictures of the table.

(There were a few tarts and berries already gone by this point.)

I thought you would enjoy these photos of the offerings:

berries with powdered sugar

chicken salad and pimiento cheese finger sandwiches

mini-cheesecake bites topped with fresh blackberries (top photo)

Mrs. Vreeland would have approved of the huge strawberries.

She absolutely adored the color red.


Fascinating life, fascinating woman.

She “discovered” Lauren Bacall. Now, that was a discovery!

    Lovely tablescape, Ellen! Would have loved to have been there to enjoy the conversation and partake in your beautiful refreshments (wish I could have been a fly on the wall!) Your kid’s decorated eggs from your Eufaula parents are adorable & a special memory! : )
    XOXO,
