During our weekend at the Chateau du Grand Luce we had numerous wonderful and memorable meals. One that stands out is this alfresco lunch. We decorated the table ourselves with roses we cut from the the cutting garden and we arranged the seating with a pack of cards. You need two packs of cards and what you do is lay a card under each plate, then you let each guest pick a random card from the second pack thats a duplicate, they then find they own matching seat card. It’s lots of fun and means people get all mixed up each meal. We then sat down to the most delicious four courses. However before pudding things escalated when flower petals were thrown as confetti – this somehow became a flower fight! It was hilarious! It should be noted that nothing was broken or damaged (apart from the flowers which sadly wouldn’t have kept since they were cut for the table and out of water for several hours during the meal anyway) and the staff were lovely and found it all very funny too. You might be able to spot a few familiar faces here. Kit was behind the camera, but Hannah (too of Three Dumplings Podcast) was also there. The lovely Steph from By Babette and Hermione are also featured.
