How I did it: I decided to host a tea party. I made mint and cucumber sandwiches, and then I made cranberry chicken salad sandwiches. I cut off the crusts and cut them into little triangles. I made pineapple, blackberry, grape and strawberry fruit skewers. I made brie apple soup, and I made strawberry tea smoothies with a bit of rum. :) For dessert I bought mini cupcakes, from this fancy cupcake shop. :) I asked my guests to wear dresses. (We were all women.) I wore my dress, and a hat, and I lent, my hats out to the women who didn't have any. There were 3 women I invited, and I put a white table cloth, and I had linen napkins with a real tea set. It was cute. I kept making more pots of tea throughout the day. We probably drank 4 or 5 pots. They stayed so late, that I had to order a pizza to feed them supper too. Read how I did it… 4 months ago
...as an old friend coming over for dinner has grown into a full-scale girls-night-in dinner party!
The gal who started the ball rolling can’t come, but I’ve since added seven of my closest friends to the invite list, and four are coming for sure.
We’ll start with veggies and an avacado/yogurt dip I’ve been wanting to try, then for dinner I’m making grilled romaine salads, grilled salmon, and a rice pilaf. Dessert will be grilled peaches over ice cream.
Since the weather’s supposed to be amazing on Friday, we’re going to use the picnic table out back and I’ll get a few tea-light candles set up for after the sun goes down. It’ll be my inaugural party in my back-yard, where I’ve been dying to have a cookout all summer!
Tonight I’m trying out some mocktail recipes I found because most of us are tee-totalers, but I still want to have some fun drinks.
