Abie wrote the menu up on the chalkboard out front ;)
Here she is posing in front of the photo backdrop. This was early in the day.
Getting the table ready!
Checking spacing, making sure everyone would have just enough room. We used an 8ft table and fit 9 girls around it.
Landry has really gotten into cooking and helped out SO much for the dinner! Here she is working on the creamy tomato soup.
I'm not sure who was the Chef and who was the Sous Chef here...
And the birthday girl. She was SO excited! She borrowed a pair of my heels, so was ridiculously tall! The girl is 5'6 in her bare feet already :) She really wanted a tiara too. Such a sweetheart.
The chefs, discussing something VERY important.
We made simple place cards for each of the girls, which doubled as a small party favor.
The appetizer was shrimp cocktail, huge hit!
Creamy tomato soup in bread bowls was served next, followed by Cesar salad.
There were two girls that are vegetarian, but still ate the shrimp..., so they had stuffed tomatoes for their entree.
The girls had a choice of beef or chicken, stuffed with goat cheese and spinach and a side of new potatoes. In the invitation, Abie included a response card which the girls sent back with their choice of entree so we knew how much of each to prepare.
All of the plates, ready to serve.
And dessert, homemade chocolate mousse.
This was a team effort! From the invitations, to decorating, to food prep to serving and clean up, but oh man, SO MUCH FUN! A fancy dinner party for your 13th birthday party? Awesome.
Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon and have a super fantastic week! :)
