dinner party

For the holiday weekend, we got together with some of our oldest friends from in town and out. We have been planning for weeks and I have over 100 emails in a gmail string to prove it.

Friday night, after everyone arrived, we gathered at our house for an italian dinner on the deck. I love throwing parties, especially with good friends. The weather was perfect. Warm, but with a soft breeze to keep you cool and blow the mosquitoes away. We ate slowly, gabbed a lot, drank wine and played games in the twilight.

A few friends had their fabulous envy-inducing digital SLR cameras there and I got to play around a bit. Here are a few photos from the evening:

What a fun time! I wish the weather here was tolerable enough to have a dinner party like that. That last photo is incredible.

That looks so fun! You seem to love entertaining the way I do...tablecloths, real dishes, etc...I have friends that laugh at me decorating my yard up with lanterns, candles in the garden, etc for dinner parties...but they always seem to have a good time!!
