Patio Dinner Party - Take 3

So i'm making this a tradition. I love it, the people I invite love it... and it's a great way to enjoy the summer evenings... which are the best. Last year's dinner party was a hit and I used pretty much all new recipe's from Pinterest, so this year I did the same. Tried all new recipes and I loved this menu even more than the last. On the menu we had...

Coconut Curry Chicken
Cilantro-Lime Sweet Potatoes
Strawberry Spinach Salad with Mango, Blueberries & Cashews
Peach Lemonade  &
Mint Chocolate Mousse Cookies & Cream Parfaits

And I love that I had this cute patio bar to put all of the food on. Can you tell I'm just in love with my patio?

The food was all delicious and fairly healthy. I also love setting up and decorating. I am just as much into the presentation and ambiance as I am into the good food. I like how it turned out.

The display was beautiful, the food was delicious and I couldn't have asked for better company. We all had a great time. RJ even played a little guitar for us. There was a little singing, a lot of laughter and a lot of smiles and good conversation. It was a perfect summer night. Something about a good atmosphere, good weather and good food that really bring people together. I loved it. It just got better as the evening went on, the weather got cooler and we were just lit by the patio lights and candlelight. I typically only do this one time during the summer... but I loved it so much I feel like I need to do it at least one more time. I think I will.... until then, patio dinner party was a success! Thanks to my friends for coming!

Looks like a beautiful and fun night! Bugs would have ruined it for me if I would have tried the same thing at my house :) I need my screened porch back!! Great job!

So fun! You are inspiring. I might not be able to throw an outdoors party until late Fall though.
