Food Coloring is the secret behind the color.

Mother's Day Luncheon Inspired by Doris Day!

I think I will call this luncheon tablescape "Doris Day Luncheon" doesn't it just have that feel of an old Doris Day movie. All yellow and sunny...can you picture Cary Grant coming in and sitting down eating some scrumptious things she cooked.

I have had these darling yellow, pink and white polka dot plates for a few years now. I picked them up at Target for cheap!

 I love how they look so fun and happy! I used some yellow gingham fabric from my fabric stash and smooshed it around and then set my white vase on it filled with flowers from Walmart. The whole bouquet cost $9.00!! I love fresh flowers on the table. I used some of pretty pink napkin ring holders  
I love these gigantic white napkins that I bought at a little shop in downtown Chicago a year or so ago. They are so nice because 1. they look amazing on the table and 2. they cover your lap really well if you spill!

The white vase and the white cups were from Neiman Marcus or as I refer to them as Needless Markup! (I did not buy them mind you) they were given to me as a gift. Love that!! They are Italian dishes called Bella Cucina and I use them all the time. They are so fresh and clean looking. It is funny because the person that gave them to me actually gave me a large ornate platter but that is so not me so I went to exchange it and got the large white vase, 6 cups in a cute silver holder, a little white pot with a lid, and one other thing for the price of one large platter. SCORE!!!

I love using creative things to serve fruit kabobs in. Like this cute little metal French looking container. Or I could use it to place napkins or silverware in it for a buffet.

The fruit kabobs are made up of bananas, cutie oranges, kiwi and blueberries! My grand kids ate them up!

This tall wired cloche is filled with branches covered in moss and peeking out is a little love bird. 
oh I just love using these little metal crown votive holders as mini vases...they really add that sparkle to the table.

The room just glows with my chandelier hanging above. 


The wired cloche really makes a statement on the table don't you think? You could even fill it with flowers or a tall white candle.

The MOST delicious moist Naked Banana Cake... Perfect for EASTER!

The MOST delicious MOIST 
Naked Banana Cake with Fresh Flowers
perfect for EASTER!

Banana Cake with cream cheese frosting, Naked Banana Cake with Fresh Flowers
I thought I had taken more photos when I made this pretty cake but apparently I did not!
I am a Bad blogger! LOL
I will list out the steps and post the recipe below

Step 1- Decide how big you want your cake. I made two recipes of this cake so I could get it tall. I used two 6" round cake pans and two 8" round cake pans (actually I just used one twice)

Step 2- Make and bake the cake (recipe below)

Step 3- After cakes have cooled cut the two smaller cakes in half to make four layers. I left the two 8" cakes whole.

Step 4- Make the " to die for" cream cheese frosting (recipe below)

Step 5- Let the stacking begin! Lay one of the 8" cakes on a pretty cake plate and cover just the top with frosting pushing some of the frosting to the edges so that it will squish out a little when the next cake layer is laid on top. Stack the next 8" layer on. Cover the top with frosting.

Step 6- Place one of the 6" layers in the center of the 8" cake, add frosting in between each layer ending with a smooth cake layer on top . Frost with more frosting leaving a little of the edge of the cake exposed.

Step 7- Cut off stems of blooms and position the flowers in a pleasing way. We used to pretty peonies and a few ranuculas at the base of the flowers. The green leaves were cut from trees around our neighborhood..some sort of light green olive tree. Madeline places some at the base of the cake and for the final touch we sprinkled powdered sugar all on the edges of the cake and on the leaves. It turned out so pretty!

****I used this Banana Bar recipe from Taste of Home only I replaced the sour cream with greek yogurt.

Taste of Home
Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting



Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3-3/4 to 4 cups confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°/ In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in bananas.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool.
  • 3. For frosting, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually beat in enough confectioners' sugar to achieve desired consistency. Frost bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 3-4 dozen.
