Holiday Dinner Fête

The party planners: Karina, Rachel, Me.
Centerpieces of glass mirrors, pine cones and candles made
for a dreamy ambience.
Printed menu that highlights our potluck contributions.
The table aglow.
The most stylish family we know.
Marines and baby Santi. Adorable!
Clearly, Persis and I were not in on the joke.
Yummy appetizers!
The best gnocchi we've ever had.
Mingling guests.

Ah, if only we had snapped this photo before eating!

About a month ago, Karina and I, along with our fellow party planner, Rachel, hosted our first formal holiday dinner party. It was complete with rented tables and chairs, holiday decor that would have made Martha proud, and an array of the most amazing food, courtesy of our invited guests. We made it a potluck and were so incredibly impressed with everyone's dishes. Among my favorites? Sarah's sweet potato gnocchi, Karina's artichoke stuffed mushrooms, Charlie's Polish sausage, and Marines' key lime pie. It was all absolutely de-lish! So although we had this lavish affair quite a few weeks ago, we wanted to share the photos with you just for fun.
