Carpe that F***ing Diem

Saturday we hosted our very first dinner party for a very special woman. She wanted a party that breathed her life motto 'Carpe Diem' - seize the day. She told me 2 key words: Italian & vintage, so it became a vintage Italian party. Italian food with vintage accessories: From old style tomato cans to Italian lemonades with pin-ups, Aperol Spritz to Bellini, Pasta alla Norma to Chicken Cacciatore to homemade focaccia, Ricotta & amaretti tart to grapefruit & thyme tart. I made little tea & poem giveaway bags in the theme of the evening. 20 enthusiastic & chatty women for a long overdue birthday party - I hope they had a blast! 
Thanks for the opportunity! It was so much fun!
