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

Pad Thai Night With The Boys

Written by Patti on June 22nd, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

Last week I prepped for our Pad Thai dinner with John, John, Danny and Ken. Let me show you how everything went.

The table dressings – I wanted a masculine feel, with a little bit of an Asian influence. This is what I came up with.

For The Boys

Heavy wooden placemats were set on two overlapping white tablecloths.  Striped napkins set with chopsticks and red candle holders completed the mood.

My husband Eric is such a love. He got the pad thai started while I served up bbq on rice crackers, with a dot of hot sauce for those that dared.

We all gathered in the kitchen, naturally, and visited while Eric stirred and John and I put the sauce together.

It’s always great to have new folks to the house. John told me he had attended culinary school in Switzerland, so we had tons to gab about.

And then it was time to eat!  Thanks, Honey!
