3rd Annual Progressive Dinner is in the books. As usual the decor was beautiful, the food was delicious and the company couldn’t be beat. First stop was the Goubeauxs for drinks and appetizers. Andre is a bit of a wizard at crafting cocktails/mocktails and the finger foods were exactly what everyone needed to get appetites wet. Lauren from over at LACE made the beautiful geometric heart on display. Any party needs-she your lady.
Next stop was dinner at The Britts. Emily has the most hostess heart of anyone I know and man does that lady know how to cook. Per usual, she made, wedge salads (homemade salad dressing/bacon bits) bacon wrapped asparagus, mashed potatoes and steak with a tarragon compound butter. This part of the night is always nice because everyone has to sit around the same table and the whole crowd gets to mingle and there’s something about eating around a dinner table with your best friends that feels like home.
Last stop, The Thompsons for desserts. Chocolate cake, chocolate covered strawberries and eclairs to round up the fell course meal. The last stop includes a photo opp. This year I made a fringe garland backdrop and let my friends go to work, couples, friends and even babies this year all had fun getting their photos taken. This tradition along with a couple others is one of my favorites and Im already excited for next years.
