The Dinner Party



My darling Jonny came to town again for the weekend! We are having lots of fun but I just had to show off one event in particular which epitomizes why I love this man so much.

He is absolute class.

On Saturday evening, Jonny prepared an Italian dinner party. It was spectacular. He's like the freaking male Martha Stewart or something.

Romantic music filled the air. The fragrance of fresh flowers hit our noses from every angle. Cocktails and wine were on hand. Champagne was flowing.

And the food. Oh my god. The food. Jonny and his father spent all afternoon cooking a five-course meal. Hot pepper jam. Gourmet cheese. Hummus. Basil tomato flatbread pizza. Strawberry spinach salad. Greek olives. Angel hair pasta and tomatoes drizzled olive oil. Chicken Parmesan. Cannolis. Grapefruit sorbet with fresh blackberries.

Um, yeah.

It was ridiculous.

Here are some photos:











And that, my friends, is how fabulous is done!

After the meal, we sat around and chatted for a couple hours. Jonny was the perfect host, always making sure drinks were refilled and that a lovely time was being had by all.

I had not seen our mutual friend John (pictured below) in two years, so we had a lot of catching up to do! We also played with Jonny's new beagle puppy, Schmooey.





Good wine, good food, good friends. It was one of the loveliest evenings I have had in a very long time.

I hope your weekend was just as wonderful!

Stephanie said...

Now THAT is a friend. But I guess he can't be offered the local job, since he lives far. He's more of a...contractor.

Sooo... I'm in my dorm room eating granola straight out of the box and being outrageously jealous. No big. I want Jonny to be my bestie. Scratch that -- I want to BE Jonny.

You've got a fabulous life.
