Scenes from a Party









Today I christened my house with it's first party. I invited some of my woman friends over in celebration of being a Woman! I like being a woman so why not celebrate it! The party was a huge success and if I don't say so myself without bragging too much the food was excellent. I actually forgot to take photos while everyone was here. Silly me, so these are scenes from afterwards. On today's menu was, Jerusalem Cucumber Salad, Shrimp Orzo Pasta, Fruit Salad, Bacon, Cheddar, and Spinach Quiche, Strawberry Lemonade, Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Butter cream Frosting, and Hummingbird Cake. Yummy! The weather was perfect for sitting on my deck almost a little to hot, but this didn't stop us from having a good time. Here is to the next party in two weeks-my sons birthday party.  He postponed his party in February, so that he could have a swim birthday party in May.  I can't wait for the many parties around the corner.  Let the festivities begin!
post edit note:  Sorry to lazy to link all the recipes, but I will tell you where I found them. Cucumber salad from Smitten Kitchen, Cake from Joy of Baking.com. Cupcakes found on Martha Stewart.com cupcake series, Shrimp Orzo salad from Food Network, and well the Quiche is a creation of my mom's she has been making them forever so I don't know where the recipe comes from.  Hope this helps!  Hugs!

I only recently tried hummingbird cake. It's a southern recipe, isn't it? Everything looks delicious!

Now that looks like a lot of fun was had by all! If they could move that is from all that great food! lol
We could use some of that 'almost too hot' weather in our neck of the woods!
Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Hi Kelleyn,

wow, this food looks absolutely delicious... :-)

That's great that Winston is doing so well in Germany, I bet his German will be perfect when he comes back to the US. :D

Here in Austria nothing special is going on, it's just work work work... am always looking forward to the next weekend... Sometimes it's quite stressful but I like working there a lot because all the tasks are interesting.
Hope you and the rest of the gang are doing well. Please send my regards to your mom. By the way, those are really beautiful pictures of you and Nancy in your blog.

Have a good Sunday... lots of hugs, Nadja
