Fabulous food and friends

My very first dinner party in honour of Thanksgiving went off beautifully! I was able to treat my UK and Italian friends to their  first taste of traditional American Thanksgiving fare. And my green bean casserole and bourbon mashed sweet potatoes were a huge hit!

The decorations were ultra simple due to time and budget, but they worked well. (Ignore the cutlery placement, lol)

Patterned napkins, slips of brown package paper with handwritten names, and stray sprigs of rosemary that didn’t make it into the turkey roasting tin.

My friend Irene and her little girl Emma brought us some alphabet biscuits they’d made at home and they were the perfect addition to the table setting! So sweet.

We had a lovely time, especially the kids who had their own little table and all got along so nicely.

Such a wonderful night, capped off with stunning aromatic Italian coffee (thanks Lorenzo!) that had me awake at 3am and still smiling with thoughts of my dear friends.
