silver service dinner

well I promised photos so here they are. We had a lovely night and Molly (12) and Lara (12)did a fantastic job of preparing and serving our 5 course dinner on Friday night. Each course was near perfect and the 7 adults enjoyed a lovely evening. Tess (9) and Caitlin (14) were waitresses and learnt a lot about serving and clearing, Emily and Callum helped entertain Meggie (1), Matilda (2) and baby Luke (7mths) whilst enjoying big screen movies in the front room (lots of chips to vaccuum Sat Morning!) All dressed in their finery (I was very smart and wore a long skirt with thermals underneath) and all of the good dinnerset, crystal, and silver ware was resurrected, cleaned and presented for the evening. (not seen since 'before kids'). I even had to climb up to the very top cupboards to find some things. The girls found flowers in the winter garden to decorate and even cleaned the house and kept the kitchen clean. We were all so proud of their achievements...

the menu

the table

entree - Bruschetta with feta and asparagus
