Carolyn McIntosh in Edmonton
is planning a quintessential happening! We have the most beautiful outdoor living room and we love to have parties there and share special events and fellowship with friends.I decorate in themes, (did a wonderful centerpiece arrangement with red and white hydrangeas, the Canadian Flag, red and white checked ribbon all in a white tin pitcher), red and white checked placemats, red napkins, matching napkin holders, white dishes, and a coloured co-ordinted dessert (stawberries and creme fraiche). We have soft music playing in the background, have tiny lights sparkling, the sound of a trickling waterfall, wonderful food and great conversation all help to make magical evenings!! Haven’t decided on my theme for August 1st yet, but it will be wonderful! trust me! (Ed.Note: I’ve asked her to keep us posted.) Her menu? Barbecued Marinated Pork Loin with Prune Sauce (MMMMM, good!!- actually to die for) Garlic Buttered Shrimp,Barbecued Sitr Fry Vegetables tossed with Italian Dressing, Tortellini Salad (using tri-coloured pasta for colour, cherry tomatoes, fresh parsley, finger shreds of zuchini and carrot and served with a ranch dressing),Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing,Curried Mushrooms, Fridge Pickles,Creamed Onion Rings,Fresh Fruit (Strawberries and Blueberries) served with Italian Amaretti and Creme Fraiche.
