My goal this year is to throw more dinner parties, it is so nice to prepare a dinner for friends and visit for a while. For my first attempt at a dinner party I invited my brother and his girlfriend over for a birthday celebration. I have a particular diet so we prepared a tasty allergy friendly meal and I had a lot of fun preparing the space. Here are some highlights and tips for planning your own dinner party in a jiffy.
Decor: A bouquet of flowers broken up using tiny vases (probably from the dollar tree), place mats and napkins on sale at Target, handwritten cards on kraft paper, done!
The Menu: Chicken Sage Patties from the Autoimune Paleo Cookbook, Sauted garlic spinach, mashed tumeric sweet potatoes and a salad with a homemade citrus vinegarette (my husband's creations) For dessert, flourless orange chocolate cake (thanks Pinterest!)Recipe here: Chocolate Cake
Good Company! After a lovely dinner we played the game Drawful, my favorite! It is a digital game that is part of the Jackbox party pack, I think you can get it on Xbox. Its a game of goofy drawing using your phone, hilarious and so much fun.
