Last night

Last night I had a dinner party.
I made a garden salad, mashed potatoes and a slow-roasted chicken.
{I'll share my recipes around Thanksgiving.}
We wined, dined, ate cake, played guitars and drugged the cats.

Herb, ficus and flower center piece in mason jar. I thought they looked alright, I feel like something is still missing though.

 My mother would be proud, I can set a table. {I am obsessed with grey and yellow these days.}


Oscar got a cake :) The Pumpkin-carrot cake was a bit hit. Even the carrot cake nay-sayer amongst us thought it was delish. I never thought I was much of a baker, but apparently I make some yummy baked goods; everyone loved my pumpkin-muffin cakes too.

Rob and Estefi played us some tunes.

... and I got the cats really high, and giggled while they rolled around in catnip for about 40 mins.
Why is that so funny to me?

Dinner Party 101: Giving cats catnip is an excellent way to entertain guests. ;)

So I'd say it was a successful evening, and now I'm ready for thanksgiving.
