Garden Dinner Party

Several times this summer I have mentioned to Brent and my roommates that I wanted to throw a little summer garden dinner party. I really enjoy having people over and I enjoy cooking for people, and I have a cute little garden and I feel like I should appreciate it before winter comes back. So this last Sunday I invited a couple friends over and of course my roommates and Brent and I finally did it. It was a success! Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed eating out on the patio.

Here is a little update on my garden since my last post... the sunflowers have grown and blossomed, I now have little tomatoes and the lily pads grew in the water fountain!

Here are the pictures from the garden dinner party. Wondering what I made for everyone? The menu included: Strawberry Soup, Parmesan cheese & Basil bread sticks, Caesar salad, pasta salad, Chicken-zucchini-shrimp kabobs, and Brent's oh so amazing raspberry cheesecake drizzled with chocolate! And to add to the ambiance, I had Ashlee and Julia pick some flowers for the table. It was the perfect finishing touch. It all turned out amazing!

I love that your sunflowers, tomatoesand lily pads are growing. That's so fun to see progress. The dinner looks FABULOUS. I've never had strawberry soup. How was it? So fun to have a dinner outside on the patio! Great end of summer idea. So sad. I'm going to miss summer!
