Weekend Reflections

I love to entertain at home.  Casual, impromptu  get togethers are fun but I love to go all out and throw a dinner party with multiple courses and a pretty table setting.  

I decided to use red chargers with brown, silk-like napkins and yellow candles and flowers.

I used multiple glass and silver vessels for flowers and candle holders.  The daffodils were from my yard.

After a starter of grilled mushroom and gruyere pizza, we cleansed our palate with lemon, rosemary sorbet. 

The main course was caramel orange scallops, a recipe from Dorie Greenspan's book, Around My French Table.  
Of course the best thing about a dinner party is the guests.  We had a wonderful time with really fun, interesting people.

How do you like to entertain?  
I'll share the special drink and dessert later in the week.  Stay tuned.

Have a wonderful Monday.
