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

Pork Chop and Apple Sauce in a Thermos

Written by Patti on July 14th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

My friend Dana, who is also a mama-to-be, invited me to her sweet home recently for some lunch to catch up. I jumped at the chance to be able to spend some quality time with her before her little one arrives.

Pork Chop and Apple Sauce and Thermos? What’s that all about? Pork Chop and Apple Sauce are the names of Dana and Steve’s dogs. Pork Chop is an english bull and Apple Sauce is a adorable little pug. Thermos is Dana’s friend’s boston terrier she is baby sitting. It was a lively afternoon!

My Good Friend Pork Chop

Dana prepared a lovely spread – sliced cantalope and strawberries, ham and turkey roll ups with a fresh green salad that included mangoes and a fantastic salad dressing made with lemon and mango. And fresh lemonade. It was all so beautiful.

Mama To Be, Dana - Isn't She Adorable?

Dana's Table Had A Touch of Whimsy For Our Luncheon

Everything was incredibly delicious. We were joined by our Editor-In-Chief of Design Is, Walt, who brought the yummiest cookies stuffed with mini candy bars. Mmmm.

I Chose The Turkey Roll Up...Okay, I Had The Ham, Too

The Dressing Was So Tasty, I Used It On My Salad And My Cantalope

Loved Dana's Monogrammed Napkins!

It was a wonderful afternoon of fabulous food, darling dogs and fantastic friends.

Thanks, Dana!!

xoxo, Patti
