A Fancy Little Dinner Party

So Sunday's dinner party actually went really well! I nearly had a panic attack when it was almost time for the guests to arrive and there I was still chopping up tomatoes for the bruschetta when I should've been getting dressed instead. But my friends had a lovely time and liked the food. And my little menus looked so cute!

Preparing everything was so much work, but it was nice to see the girls enjoy themselves and that I could pull it off without too many hitches. Read more about it here!

  5. As good as the food looks - and it looks yummy! *reaches into the picture to take a lemon chicken leg*, I think the ones of you and your guests look even better.

    Such happy folks! The picture under the shimp tray is my favorite. Such mega-smiles!

    Did you paint that green tree, strawberry, and red flowers scene on the wall?

  8. tooj, you should. I'd love to see what you'd put on your menu. I'm guessing brownies and Mickey D's.

    ab, thanks!

    caren, well I had to add my touch to it and the menus were so easy to make.

    franco, ever since I found out I wasn't allergic to them, I've been a sucker for shrimp too! Man, I want some now...

    intense guy, no actually. The frames are from Urban Outfitters and the wall decals are from Ikea. And I still have leftovers from the party!

    sugarlens, oh yes they are! Reeeaaally lucky!

    intense guy, shhhh! ;)
