Imaginary Dinner Parties - A Summer Solstice

20 June 2008

Dear readers, I'm introducing a new feature to So Wonderful, So Marvelous called "Imaginary Dinner Parties" and I hope you enjoy it. Don't get me wrong here, YKW and I love to throw ACTUAL dinner parties and will continue to do so, but sometimes I have more ideas than time lately...

First, allow me to set the scene...

The linen is yellow bristol brown from BBJ linen that can be found here.

The Il Nodo Ceramiche Fleur-de-Lis dinnerware in Honey found here at Neimans.

These totally insane, lovely raspberry Villeroy & Boch Mankai Goblets found here at Amazon.

All set up on our front porch with these incredible white string lights from Luna Bazaar found here.

Now on to the menu...

Appetizer: Roquefort Crudité Dip with veggies for dipping.

Salad: romaine with figs, toasted walnuts, goat cheese and a balsamic vinegrette.

Main Course: grilled shrimp on lemongrass skewers, chili lime chicken, served over wild rice with fresh grilled zucchini

Dessert: just picked strawberries (of course) macerated in a vanilla lime simple syrup and served with fresh whipped cream

All served with a fantastic Prosecco.

Wow, now that I'm done creating, I may have to make this happen. My mouth is already watering.
