Last fall, I hosted ( along with two of my sisters-in-law) a Book Themed Baby Shower for my niece.
I hosted my Book Club last week for our discussion of the book, Prospect Street. Here’s a look back at our lunch.
Almost two years ago, I hosted (along with the assistance of some sisters-in-law) a bridal shower for my nephew’s fiancé.
Here’s a look back at our:
Love is in the Air Bridal Shower
Another gal in my Book Club hosted several months ago for our discussion of the book, The Circle. This fictional book is the story of a young woman who goes to work for the world’s largest tech company. My fellow reader simply, but cleverly set her table with a technology backdrop.
Some info about our Gourmet Group: We are 4 couples who enjoy cooking, entertaining, and most of all, each other’s company.
We take turns hosting in our homes. The hosts decide on the menu (theme) from appetizers to dessert for the evening. The hosts cook most of the meal, but give at least one course (along with all the recipes) to the other couples to prepare. We love trying new recipes and ideas. So most of the time the recipes are ones we haven’t cooked before, but they don’t have to be.
We hosted our Gourmet Group a couple of weeks before Christmas. I chose a “Silver Bells” dinner theme for our evening.
Fun Facts about the song “Silver Bells”. The song was composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans. It was first performed by Bob Hope and Marilyn Monroe in the movie, “The Lemon Drop Kid”. The song was originally going to be titled “Tinkle Bells” until Livingston’s wife stepped in, and explained to him what the word tinkle usually means (bathroom connotation). The next day the title of the song was changed, and the word silver was substituted for the word tinkle throughout the song. Source: Songfacts
The weather outside that night was “frightful” (a snowstorm), but the fire and our evening together inside was “delight-full”.
