I am not a ritualistic person. I get bored easily and like to do too many (really lots, too many) things to be held down doing the same thing over and over again. And, I’m kinda a loner even though I am surrounded by amazing people. Here’s a confession: I’m selfish with my time.
But one thing I’ve been a part of for almost decade now (wow, that’s a long time) is meet with girlfriends for breakfast every Wednesday morning at the same local restaurant for coffee, breakfast, and chat. We were once five in number, and we’re still meeting, though we’re now the three amigas. I love these women. They challenge me, inspire me, and love the real me.
And we love to have parties!
Since I was hosting this one at my house, I wanted to have a girlie, think pink, party using my mom’s pink dishes. The party scheme was pink, orange, and gold. Such a pretty, elegant, combination.
Here are are few table shots.
I can’t wait to show and tell you about the food. I would make any of them again – and often!
- Carrot Soup with Dukkah and Pistachios
- Cobb Salad
- Crouton rounds
- Affogato with Tiramisu Ice Cream
I will share more this week: the planning, the details, the sewing (don’t judge me).
Workin’ it out,
