Louisiana Lagniappe {Dinner Party}

Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Two of my friends recently celebrated birthdays, two got married, and two got engaged so this summer has been busy with exciting memories! I also spent some unexpected time in New Orleans with my family in early April and was really inspired by the essence of the city.  When I returned from the Big Easy, I decided to throw an outdoor dinner party to bring together some of my favorite people and to celebrate summer, new beginnings, and my Louisiana roots.

I invited 10 of my friends including the birthday girls, the newlyweds, and the recently engaged! I made a true home cooked meal sparked by my southern roots.  Using my grandmother’s recipes (plus a few of my own), I made dishes and desserts the New Orleans way.  I set up tables with my mother’s china and fresh flowers. Then I lit a few candles and put the Rebirth Brass Band on repeat.  We had a few bottles of wine and a really great time!
