Another month another party! My grandmother celebrated her 88th birthday in August. To celebrate her we held an intimate soiree with family and friends. How lovely that our dear friends have become her friends over the years.
On the menu we served jalepeño artichoke dip, spinach dip with French bread, clam dip with potato chips, bean dip with lime flavored organic tortilla chips, chicken teriyaki skewers (a delicious repeat from our anniversary party),
two fruit bowls –strawberry and grapes, and strawberry and cantaloupe -, and crudites with organic, home grown rainbow carrots, yellow tomatoes and cucumber.
For dessert lemon pound cake with homemade pistachio ice cream!
But what in the way of entertainment? An ipod with a genius song selection? No! My husband played piano for the lady of the hour.
Lydia the tattooed lady
It’s you I like
Yes, we have no bananas
The merry-go-round broke down
What a wonderful world
It was a beautiful to way to celebrate one of the most wonderful women in my life.
Happy Birthday, Yia Yia!
