This year I turned 25, and decided to treat myself to an intimate beach-side dinner party!
I used an old white sheet for the table cloth and a mix of red geraniums and pink roses for centerpieces. The napkins and table runner were both sewn by me with fabric from here. My mom was kind enough to bring the table, plates + silver!
Our menu included caesar salad with fresh locally-grown romaine and homemade dressing, paired with locally raised grilled chicken and shrimp. It was healthy, easy to pack and delicious.
