Our First Dinner Party in Our New Home

Before we tore apart our dining room to make way for our ultimate design, we hosted our first dinner party.  My parents, grandmother and great aunt joined Hubs and I for a dinner.  We love to have people over so we can share our favorite recipes and use some of the beautiful dinneware and serveware we recieved for our wedding. 

We had a fall themed table with pumpkins, gourds and the season's warm colors.  (Though I did learn that now that we are able to have the extra leaf in our table all the time, I need to invest in new tablecloths and runners since my current ones are a bit short.)

For dinner, we enjoyedCaesar salad, marinated tri-tip steak cooked on the grill, herbed red potatoes, sweet corn on the cob with fresh fruit tarts for dessert and red and white wines and Prosecco with dessert to toast another wonderful family gathering. 

To see more of our the recipes we have tried, visit our other blog About a Bit of Everything which highlights recipes and other crafty projects.
