Happy December everyone!!
With the holidays quickly approaching, some of us (ME!) are more excited than others (may or may not be Kim). Regardless, neither of us could resist throwing an appreciation lunch for our amazing interns and turning it into a holiday party!!
We spent the morning decorating and cooking with Christmas music on in the background, of course. We decided to use a few more pops of color than the traditional red and green by incorporating pink poinsettias, pomegranates, pink taper candles, and rosé!
Kim made one of her favorite dishes, roasted green beans with hazelnut pesto, topped with crème fraîche and pomegranate seeds! It was so delicious!
We tucked miniature pinecones into a runner of winter greens and added a sprig to each napkin. And let’s talk about these white linen napkins with silver trim from DIANI Living!!!
I made apple pie, using my family’s recipe, covered with Christmas tree cutouts and topped with a star! It may have looked more recognizable before it was cooked, but it tasted like Christmas nonetheless!!
And last but not least, a huge thank you to our two sweet interns this past semester! You’ll be seeing a post from both Kristen & Claire on the blog soon as they reflect on some of their experiences as interns over the last few months. We can’t wait to hear what they think!!
