Showers of Success

Yesterday was Daphna's shower. It went swimmingly, other than a few logistical hiccups in the morning. We had a great time, I think that Daphna had the best time of all, and we celebrated in style!

No shower would be complete without finger sandwiches and cake! {i made the cake from Rita Konig's tea party in this month's Domino - it was delish!}

My mum and dad were kind enough to allow us to use their lovely home for their day, since we would have been sitting on boxes at our place, and it was such a relief!!! Nothing better than a lovely afternoon tea party on a cold fall day... I'm thrilled for those two crazy kids!

We followed that with a dinner for the wedding party at the couple's house. once again, since we live a crazed half-existence filled with boxes, we took over their kitchen and LB made an antipasto platter with cured meats, reggiano, olives and fruit; grilled steaks, roasted asparagus, roasted potatoes and spring mix salad; and we ate the leftover desserts from the shower, since I managed to make a it more than was required...We ate, drank, played games, had general merriment. A lovely day

Now I'm off to the big ol' city of Toronto...will try to post, but it will be less frequent. Ciao ciao!
