Yesterday, Rob and I had a housewarming party for his family. Now, I say this is “our first real person party” because we hosted his family, who always outdoes themselves, so we had to bring out A game. No more putting out Fritos and guac and calling it a day. We put on outfits that we believed composed hosts would wear and did our best!
Four (!! I couldn’t decide) kinds of crackers
Port wine cheese (my absolute favorite)
Gouda with herbs and olives
Carrots, celery and ranch (ok, that one is a cop out)
Chili and jelly meatballs
Rotisserie chicken (funny story – our gas won’t be on until the end of May)
Salad with lettuce, spinach, radishes, mushrooms, glazed walnuts and glazed cranberries
Fruit salad with apples, oranges, strawberries and pineapples
And a champagne toast to the new home, of course
So I think a good time was had by all, and I’d say our first party in our new home was a success.
