Dearest Kate:

Allow me to thank you for the *most excellent* luncheon that you prepared for our annual Chamber Chatters Christmas gathering.  Simply put:  It was Amazing!

When I first walked into your dining room, I was immediately struck by the lovely table decorations and formal place settings. In today’s hurried environment, it’s not often that any of us have the opportunity to sit  at a table prepared with so much care and artistry.  It truly was special and I would like to acknowledge the time investment involved in making the environment so beautiful.

Next, one might guess that with so many people to serve (we do have an amazing club don’t we?), the luncheon  may have been a pot-luck or some such thing.  Well, not in your house!  Every single Chamber Chatter member was served a mixed green salad, Chicken Marbella, rice, green beans, and dessert!  And dare I reveal publicly, champagne?! And perhaps some wine….   🙂

I could say… “Move over Martha.”

Or to Paula and Rachel “Watch your backs.”

But of course I won’t because those gals have got nothing on you!

Thank you!  Thank you!

to Chamber Chatter’s warmest smile

and most accomplished
