Back in April, when Christopher
found out that Caroline was having a birthday in June, he
graciously and enthusiastically offered to host a small
dinner party in her honor. When June 8th rolled around, it
was a beautiful, balmy summer day - perfect for a birthday
party! That evening, Caroline and Scott, along with
friends Julia, Jeremy, Petra and Joe, gathered in Christopher
and Margaret's tranquil backyard for a delightful evening
meal. Upon their arrival, Christopher greeted his guests
with mojitos and hors d'oeuvres of prosciutto-wrapped goat
cheese and delicious grilled shrimp. After a bit of
mingling in the garden, we were seated to a casual, yet elegant
alfresco meal of avocado salad with caviar, grilled chicken with
fruit salsa, eggplant halves and of course a homemade chocolate
cake complete with candles and champagne. What an evening!
The food was fantastic and the company even better (if that's
possible!); Caroline felt like one lucky birthday girl indeed!
