A dinner party and 80th birthday celebration at Moody's Bar and Beats in Truckee, California. With a guest list of 65, the theme was class and sofistication for the newly-minted octogenarian. Music was provided by Avalanche Acoustic Duo - Violin and Guitar. The evening began with champagne and appetizers, followed by a three course dinner and a custom made cake for dessert.
A dinner party and wine tasting for members of the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Vine, Lake Tahoe Region, at a private home in Truckee, California. The theme was an homage to Dionysus, the god of grape harvest; of wine making and wine; of ritual madness and ecstasy. A buffet of lamb, mussels, Spanakopita, dolmas, bulgar and baklava was served. The extravaganza was complemented by Ouzo, and various wines such as Restina, Nemea, Assyrtiko.
The theme for the young, hipster, mother-to-be was “woodland creatures with a contemporary color scheme”. The location was home nested in the woods of Truckee, California, the gazebo as the focal point for a mountain baby shower. With a gathering time of 2 o’clock in the afternoon, the menu was decidedly “just dessert” consisting of homemade cupcakes, brownies, lemon bars, cookies and cake pops. Favors for the young crowd were pretty nail colors wrapped in tulle and ribbon.
