The Great British Dinner Party
Most of the birthday celebrations of either myself or my friends were shakin’ it up in a club or an awkward dinner for 10 at a loud restaurant. I enjoyed those birthdays and have long lasting memories from each one of them. But, now that we are reliving our 20s in the ’30-is-the-new-20′ era, I’m looking forward to more sophisticated and classy memories that don’t involved splitting the bill and taking out calculators or sweating out my new ‘do.
My English home girl, Jenelle, hosted an intimate dinner party at her posh Tribeca crib and invited five of her closest New York City pals to celebrate her 32nd birthday.
Please excuse my images. I took them all with my camera phone. I need to start carrying around a real camera. SMDH.
Jenelle was able to transform her living space into a private dining room. She planned this event like a David Tutera. This looks like she could make the switch from media maven to event planner, effortlessly
The formal dinner party had a Tiffany's theme. This is soooo Jenelle
For entry into the dinner party, all guests were required to bring a champagne flute. What a clever idea. Of course, I had to browse the floors of Tiffany's for the perfect glass.
I consumed five glasses of champagne that night. Jenelle was nice enough to gift us with a Bytox Patch to prevent hangovers. Which was perfect because I had a 6 a.m. flight to catch the next morning. See the patch on my arm? Woke up the next morning ready to rock and roll
And, here's the food. Jenelle hired a wonderful chef to a make healthy and flavorful cuisine. The first course, was a yummy ginger carrot soup, followed by miso cod, rosemary roasted potatoes and veggies, and for dessert -- bread pudding spheres. What a delight
