Favors were homemade shortbread and lemon curd. These had special meaning since they were both from my great-grandmother’s recipes.
My mom made most of the food herself from Ina Garten cookbooks. Everything was garnished with herbs from her garden. I used my great-grandmother’s sewing basket for the centerpiece.
Isn’t my granny cute? I told her she had to wear her old flowery hat from the ’40’s. At 90 she’s a writer and a painter and an all around active, artsy gal that people of all ages adore. Happy Birthday, Granny!
