Every couple of months, one of my girlfriends hosts a "girls dinner," a potluck, girls-only type affair at their house. This month, it was my turn and I was so excited. I got to bust out my new linens, flatware, glassware and tableware for the occasion and, in the spirit of the season, added some seasonal touches.
For the seasonal touches, I wanted them to be just that, touches, and nothing cheesy. I picked up some mini pumpkins to use as place cards and a bouquet of dahlias, roses and berries for the centerpiece. Those two touches, paired with my new table wear, were the perfect nod to fall.
In terms of menu items, we started out with an Italian salad (recipe here) and then moved on to a heavenly butternut squash lasagna. For dessert, we feasted on strawberry chiffon cake and chocolate bread putting.
