a christmas dinner with friends

Fabulous food and decor at the first Christmas dinner party of the season.

a beautiful holiday table set for twenty
We spent a fun Saturday night at a dinner party hosted by Liz and Martin.  Martin plays ice hockey with my hubby, and the whole hockey  team gets together every eight weeks for a delicious gourmet dinner.  We hockey wives have really grown close, and we have a great time together.  Martin is a fabulous chef, and we were treated to a menu that included a seared salmon appetizer, the best tuna tartar I have ever had, a gingered carrot soup and rack of lamb.  Their home was so festive, especially the table decorated by Liz with the help of Michele and Penny.  Speaking of Penny, she made the most incredible profiterole dessert and shaped it into a Christmas tree.  It was served with her warm homemade  chocolate sauce.  
Ooh, la la! 
each place setting included a special ornament and napkin from IKEA
