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.
