It was wonderful. Everybody showed up, all the food was ready on time, and there were no major disasters. I had twenty plus people in my living room and everybody huddled together on the sofas and on the carpet. People loved both the movie and the food, and took leftovers home. I completely forgot about taking food pictures. 🙂
Here's a rather awful picture of the leftovers heated for lunch.
A guest bought a gorgeous red velvet cake. Both our program director and the chair came with their wives and stayed the entire evening. That's the part I love about this program, small and unpretentious as it is. People are friendly, they are happy, and they've been here forever. Makes you want to get up in the morning and go to work.
I made a centerpiece out of a bowl of oranges and a vase full of greens. If you're horrified at the price of roses in the grocery store, try the field greens this Valentine's day. They are fresh, cheap, and so much more interesting than the flowers. I found these the day before, and fell in love with the metallic blue color.
