Entertain With Texas Panache

It’s time to put to good use those antiques you found during First Monday Trade Days at Canton and your annual spring antique hunt by throwing a shabby chic gathering. Pull out those wonderful little treasures that are missing matching pieces along with fresh flowers and Texas cacti to create an inviting atmosphere for conversing. Add your favorite Texas spirit and fresh Texas vegetables and now you’ve created an event with Texas panache.

Pass the Biscuits Please

Home-made biscuits make for easy to handle, non-messy, crowd pleasers.

Accessible Nibbles

A relaxed venue means relaxing the rules on utensils. Create a “utensil free” zone with tasty finger foods.

Perfectly Prickly

Even a prickly cactus plays an important design role in a Texas style shabby chic luncheon. But watch out for those pesky thorns!

Not So Shabby Veggies

Be sure to have home-grown (or from your local farmers market) fresh vegetables on hand.

Simple Setting

Add a touch of color while keeping an understated elegance by adorning your plate with a sprig.
