Happy Almost Spring Monday

Friends, could Spring finally be approaching? Here in Seattle, the sun actually came out this weekend, trees are starting to bloom and daffodils are about to pop in our backyard. There were plenty of gorgeous spring flowers to chose from for our girls' dinner on Saturday night.

This photo from Martha Stewart sparked the inspiration for the centerpiece, and while I couldn't find any sweet blue muscari, there was a riot of parrot tulips to choose from. 


Here's the final result. A little yellow, blue and white became the color palate for the evening. 



I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday then cooking up a feast for friends--or a better way to spend an evening than being surrounded by laughter, conversation and dear ones.


Thanks for the good times, girls. Pam, we saved you some shortbread!
