I’ve thrown Pirate Parties, Halloween parties, Valentine’s Day Parties, Horse themed parties, Swimming Parties, Makeover Parties, Chuck E Cheese Pizza Parties, Bowling Parties, Roller Skating Parties, all for my children through the years. Now that they’re teenagers, and those party days are in the past, I’d like to throw a party for adults.
This is the party I would like to host:
“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne the and stars.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

**Costumes are optional,

The drink: A Fountain of Crystal Champagne flows endlessly, *Pellegrino also available.
“The bar is in full swing, and floating rounds of cocktails permeate the garden outside, until the air is alive with chatter and laughter, and casual innuendo and introductions forgotten on the spot, and enthusiastic meetings between women who never knew each other’s names.”~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
Renaissance music will be played throughout dinner. A single tenor sings and plays his lute.
Dinner will be served by flame throwing acrobats on unicycles.
The main meal of fish, meats, grilled vegetables, olives, fresh salads, warm bread, followed by rich deserts which will include cakes and pies of dark chocolate, fruit, cheeses.
