Last night was a lot of fun! Eight of us gathered to have dinner and toast the new President. I dressed up in my best "American" outfit - denim dress, red cowboy boots and silver and turquoise jewelry.
We shared a magnum of good champagne (turns out that you can saber a magnum just like any other bottle). Ate good cheeses and bread for our appetizer. And had a dinner of baked potatoes, Obama's chili recipe and salad. Followed by spiced peach cobbler.
The centerpiece is red tea roses and Peruvian lilies. I covered the three vases with blue paper and red ribbon to match.
PS: Have you seen Mrs. O?
