Pink Ladies Menu for Pink Saturday

I have been silently following Kay Ellen for a while, admiring her gorgeous pictures on the Flickr group Apparecchiamo! I belong to as well. She is very talented both in tablesetting than in photography, her album For the love of dishes is amazing, and zapping on the web I discovered Kay Ellen design and How sweet the Sound, where Beverly's carrying on a weekly appointment called Pink Saturday.

A few days ago I participated to Giulia's contest about preparing a nice dinner for two spending only 15 euros, not a cent more, and I think my Pink Ladies Menu could fit for the event.
I let myself be inspired by spring and the first blossoms in my garden, where pink is the most common color. Well, to tell you the truth, we had to wait such a long time this year to enjoy warm temperatures and sunny days, May has been an awful month indeed, but eventually Spring came along in all its beauty.
So, I planned a light and fresh menu, quite Pink, to share with a dear friend, quietly seated facing each other, sipping our welcome cocktail in front of a wonderful sunset I am so lucky to enjoy quite every night!
