Love Is In the Air

Tony and I hosted an Italian themed Valentine's Party Thursday Night. We had the best time, and I'm already contemplating making this an annual event. The whole idea started bc after running the House of Mews 5k last November, I bid on a Fazoli's Party for 10 and won (bought) it. Well, I cant ever do anything small, so I invited way more than 10, and even after some last minute cancellations we still had 24 people in our small living room. I ordered double what I got in the auction and added a pasta salad. We even managed to squeeze tables in for everyone to sit down. That was my main goal, Italian food is tough to try to eat standing around mingling. Diane made some delicious cheese straws that disappeared in about 10 minutes. We dined on salad, Broken Heart Pasta salad (made from a recipe Courtney gave me), Penne Pasta with meat sauce, Baked Spaghetti and for desert Courtney make cookies, cupcakes and brownies. All which were gone pretty quickly. I had rigged up a 'photo booth' in our bedroom and here is what we got! Tony and I didn't even take one, but maybe we will do one this weekend. These are some stuffed monkey's that I have saved from Valentine's past..Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!

What a good idea! I'm always looking for an excuse for a party.
