We moved to a new place in October. Between work and life, and all the holidays…the loft just wasn’t coming together. Unpacking and “nesting” weren’t priorities during this busy time.
One way we forced ourselves to hang some pictures and get rid of some moving boxes was by hosting my family for Christmas dinner. Semi-presentable was good enough for the fam bam! 😉
Hello 2015 (Happy New Year!!!) – we finally put up all of our decor and our home actually feels like a home. Time for a cocktail party with a few close friends! Here are a few pics from the evening.
Rose sangria with peaches, pears and raspberries
Hummus and pita with salted capers, nuts roasted with olive oil and Herbs de Provence
Deviled eggs topped with bacon and chives
Cheese platter with grapes, honeycomb, dried apricots and figs
Rougie mousse de foie gras on a Himalayan salt block
Melon, mozzarella & proscuitto
Chocolate truffles from Schurra’s
Our group of 8 consumed the following: pitcher of sangria (made with 2 bottles of rose), 3.5 bottles of red wine, 1 750mL bottle of beer, 1 bottle of bourbon 😉
Cheers to a new year in a (somewhat) new home!
