Witherspoon joined a group of about six girlfriends for lunch on the patio, and she was seated at the head of the table.
The actress was greeted with a warm welcome of hugs, and she sat chatting with her friends for about two hours, smiling and laughing the entire time. Says the onlooker: "She seemed very relaxed and content."
