Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

New Babies, Old Friends and Pad Thai

Written by Patti on October 4th, 2009

Saturday was a busy day for us. Miss DeVore and I did a little early morning shopping for Clint’s new place and then Eric & I were scheduled to go to the christening party of a friend’s baby. It had been a couple of months since I had seen baby John Charles and he had certainly grown. He was full of charm – more so than most babies. At four months he managed to have me wrapped around his finger in no time with his smiles, giggles and jaunty eyebrow maneuvers. His proud mom and dad, Dawn & Brad, along with big sister Megan, threw a lovely party. Yummy meats and cheeses, salads and even beets – I love beets! This was topped off with a gorgeous cake of blue with white polka dots – so sweet. And Dawn even served that swell punch we all love here in the south at special celebrations – fruit punch mixed with sherbet and 7-Up. It looks so pretty in the punch bowl and definitely signifies that this is an event to be remembered.

It was great catching up with everyone at the christening party and then it was on to the next event. We met my sweet, sweet friend Kathryn and her husband, John and adorable step-daughter, for dinner at Top Spice for Thai. The brief time we spent together at dinner was crammed with two years of catching up, so lots of talking between bites. I had the Pad Thai, which was filled with shrimpy, peanutty goodness. After 1.5 hours, we all packed up and headed home.

Eric and I spent the rest of the night lounging about, watching tv and playing with the Wii.

Hope your Saturday was just as fun. Sunday – Zombie walk!

xoxo, Patti
