Barbeque in the courtyard

July 30, 2007 at 11:42 am Leave a comment

Alex and I hosted our first dinner party/barbeque for about 20 friends on Saturday evening, and it went off without a hitch.

I was planning on taking all sorts of photos during the party, hoping to post them here. I managed to take a few “before” pictures…

…but once people started showing up, I got so busy with a million other things that my camera got put to the side.  

Everyone seemed to have a good time, and my two biggest fears — rain and not enough food — were quickly quelled. It rained in the afternoon and cleared up in plenty of time for the party, and Alex and I will be eating leftover spinach and Portobello mushroom frittata, turkey meatballs, veggie pasta salad and grilled red potatoes for a week. We don’t mind at all.

Many of our guests brought bottles of wine, which we appreciated very much. It was a lovely evening with great friends, food and conversation, the rain stayed away, and the cats didn’t get out. My only complaint is that I didn’t take enough pictures, and that can’t possibly even count as a real complaint. Who could ask for more?

Thank you to everyone who graced us with your presence on Saturday, and a special thank you to Kristen, Megan, Candice and Peter for helping the evening go so smoothly!
