It was actually on April 27th, and it fell on a Friday this year, just like our wedding day. I put together a special table for dinner for two:
I set two places using my good Noritake china (pattern is Knottinghill), and vintage place mats with matching embroidered napkins. The silver plate flatware was an anniversary gift from Erik a few years ago.
This was the bouquet of flowers that Erik brought me, which had to be placed in the center of the table.
Part of our meal included chicken cordon bleu that I made in my crock pot. It was a recipe I found on Pinterest. It was quite yummy!!
For dessert I had picked up a box of dessert truffles from our favorite chocolatier shop.
Bubbly champagne! Delicious!
Erik's band had a show that Saturday night, so we decided to go to brunch on Sunday morning at our favorite restaurant, Lake Park Bistro. Located in Lake Park is also the Milwaukee Lawn Bowling Club.
The back side of the restaurant overlooks Lake Drive and Lake Michigan.
I always have the cream of asparagus soup when we go here. It's the most delicious soup in the world!
I chose poached eggs Benedict on top of crab cakes for my entree.
Erik chose the regular eggs Benedict for his entree. Both came with potatoes Dauphinoise, which are delectable, creamy and absolutely delicious! I dream about these potatoes!
While I had the Gateaux D'Ange with fresh berries.....
Erik made sure to make a reservation for us and asked for a window seat. They put this nice little sign on our table.
Our view from the window at our table; looking down the bluff to Lake Drive below.
After we had brunch, we walked around the park a little.
Lake Drive and Lake Michigan in the background.
Lake Drive is also where all the old mansions are....and lots of newer mansions as well! This one is just one of many along Lake Drive. I love this house! I wish my house had a port-cochere like this one!
Across the street.......
Can I have this beautiful terrace?
There are lots of houses along Lake Drive, both big and small. I loved this one's gorgeous flower gardens!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
I'll be joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday,
