Ina Garten Supper Club

Over the Summer, my Supper Club met for our last rotation of the group before starting a new cycle. It was Shawna's turn to host and she picked Ina Garten as the theme. It was especially fun for her to be the hostess, since it gave us all a chance to see and celebrate her new home together! I'm positively in love with Shawna's chandelier over her dining table. Ina was also a perfect theme - as we all love her recipes and pretty much think her and Jeffrey are the cutest ever. It made for a night of great food and great conversation with beautiful friends!

Courtney, Aleece and Allison ready to pop the Veuve to celebrate Shawna's new home! Gorgeous pink and blush peonies. Shawna's table and awe inspiring mother of pearl chandelier. Our place settings.

Appetizers on the patio. Baked Fontina and french baguette. Shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce. The French Martini

The Main Course. Emily tossing her Roasted Butternut Squash salad. I made Zucchini Gratin. And Shawna completely out did herself with Beef Bourguignon

Dessert (always room!) was made by Allison. I would venture to say she is the premiere baker out of all of us in Supper Club, so we are always excited when it's her turn to bring dessert. She made Couer a la Creme and homemade Palmiers. Both, were over the top. I'm not a dessert fan, and even on my very FULL stomach, this was one of the best desserts I have ever had! 

I have said it before, but it's worth saying again, Supper Club is a great reminder of what a beautiful life & girlfriends I am blessed with. I am so thankful for our times together!

OK I can't believe how beautiful your photos make the night look. That food was insanity. Now that I see how many wine glasses were on the table I am understanding the jump over the 8 foot fence. Yikes. Love you my friend.
