      @Tiffany, Hi Tiffany! The plates and serving bowls shown here are all from Crate & Barrel. It was a beautiful collection that I noticed a lot of restaurants use too, but it is about to become discontinued unfortunately. It is the Cuisine collection!

  4. I have been looking forward to your post for a while now. 🙂 I love the idea behind Champagne Wishes and you did a wonderful job!
    Our dinner party last night was the first time we have ever used our wedding china!! It reminded us how silly it is not to make use of things we enjoy more often. Life is too short.
    I also highly recommend using your ‘good towels’ lol

    Being a person who does not normally post or comment to the world on things, I felt I need to comment on this meal.

    Being the recipient of this meal, some might say I am biases, that could not be further from the truth. I am by those who know me a pickie eater.

    This meal, was a complete surprise to me. I went not knowing really what the meal was. I just knew good friends and good cook means a great time. From the moment I walked in, it was wonderful. As we sat and talk through apps, I found my self surprised I was eating almost everything there. Heck, I at FIG JAM, I have NEVER done that. Almost too much eating, it was that good.

    When we sat down to eat dinner, I found myself wondering what my move was. Was I too full from the apps, will I like what RhodeyGirl had prepared (you get the idea). But pacing myself with eating the salad first, I slowly got into the rest of the meal. And I was surprised. Surprised that I enjoyed everything, well almost, I still can’t eat mushrooms :).

    So, I won’t bore you with all the details and thoughts that I had about each item I ate. But know this, the meal was GREAT. And if you don’t believe me, just ask my mom, RhodeyGirl told her what I ate and my mom was floored that after all these years, someone got me to eat great, delicious food!

    Thanks for the meal RG.

  36. I’ve been looking forward to your entry for this challenge and I think it’s so great how you really created a step by step agenda. So creative and clever! You make me dream of the day when I have my own little home to entertain and host guests in.

  37. I love your theme, and thanks for the play by play tips! The champagne risotto sounds so unique and delicious…. great job!!
