Krista and I wanted to throw a “friend’s dinner” in March and we thought the most obvious holiday to celebrate would be Daylight Savings. We both love that it brings more light during the evening and is the beginning of springtime, good weather and sunshine!
But true to Sun Valley, the weather had other plans for us. It decided to actually slush mass amounts of the heaviest snow from the sky all day long. The joke was on us. Regardless, we didn’t throw away our plans for a “light” dinner and celebrated in style! Here is a look!
Since the weather didn’t cooperate with exactly what we had in mind, we had the boys build a fire while we set the table. Nothing quite says light and spring quite like a fire!
We wanted to keep everything about the décor fun, light and airy so we donned the table with the following:
- the prettiest pastel colored marbled paper
- confetti balloons (which, would be amazing for practically any occasion in our minds)
- new baby succulents/flowers for each setting
- mini gold mason jar votives
- fresh, white flowers
- natural placemats
We wanted to keep everything light and fresh during the celebration. We decided on a Spring time fresh pasta with a plethora of veggies and organic chicken. Everything happened to be green (except the chicken of course), keeping with the freshness!
- fresh noodles (gluten free spinach and regular linguini)
- pasta toppings (pesto, parmesan, mozzarella, salt and pepper, chili flakes, etc)
- garden fresh salad
- sautéed fresh vegetables
- organic chicken
Like every good party the company was fabulous. However the fabulous company didn’t happen to make it into any pictures, except for the smash sisters. We finished off the night with a round of Cards Against Humanity and so many giggles. It was the perfect way to celebrate the light and Spring time!
Cheers to the light, good food, good company and confetti balloons!
