Alice in Wonderland

Recently, my friend Ashley and I put together an Alice in Wonderland themed dinner party for our supper club.  It was originally planned to be outdoors at Arrington Vineyards, but due to what they are now calling the "thousand year flood" in Nashville, our party was moved indoors - to my place.  A successful party should be great, regardless of location, right?  Well...that's what we kept telling ourselves as the rain kept coming...and kept on coming.

So, we made due.  We turned off all the lights, lit candles everywhere, played the new Alice in Wonderland soundtrack in the background (which is so great by the way!) and enjoyed every delicious morsel of food. Ashley rocked the tea sandwiches, gazpacho and hors d'oeuvres. I made all the sweets. The combination of all of the above was a perfect compliment to each other and we sat around the table talking, laughing, enjoying a glass of wine and listening to the rain pour down outside.
