Last night was the most fun I have had with friends since Covid has colonized our society! If there is a silver lining to having to stay far away from our most favorite people, being unable to partake in our most loved activities….like going to restaurants, bars, museums, trips and basically anything inside….then it’s certainly backyard dinner parties!
Kristen and I have many separate Pinterest dreams…(helllooo home library with a ladder….and can you say shiplap???)....one jointly held dreamboat of a Pin, is the backyard dinner party. Now...for a pop-up party...following an entire day of rain...we didn’t do so bad...but there IS room for improvement (see outdoor chandelier)....so we will have to keep trying until we get it right!
Since Kristen has spent soooo much time this year letting me vent, keeping me sane and just being over-all amazing….oh and expended all of the energy doing that small task of growing a new life inside of her….(minor details)...I wanted to make it special….so the Dinner Party - Covid Edition was born!
The hubs, sister and SIL decided on a French theme. So I went to work collecting pins and ideas to make it feel special. SIL was on mocktail duty for the Mama To Be! Sister was in charge of desert, Hubs - music and I had the table and menu!
Here are the Pinterest recipes I used to make this night a hit!
Lemon Basil Pasta Salad
Coq Au Vin Blanc
