At a 40th birthday party for a friend this weekend, there was a ton of great food. The birthday girl is a former chef, so needless to say the fare was exquisite… beef wellington, asparagus tips in filo, ceviche tacos, mini-brats in rolls, artichoke tarts, and beef tampanade… and that was just the little bit that I had!
Additionally, she has also been an events planner, so the setup was clever and appealing as well. Little special touches of her “Around the World in 40 Years” theme were everywhere… globes, luggage, maps, etc. As far as photos go, my favorite were the rolls. They just looked so yummy in the antique basket with the plaid towel… sort of “old world” bakery, I guess.
Met some nice new people, had great food, and didn’t have to clean up afterwards. Is there a better kind of party?! :)
