We're having some friends over on Tuesday to celebrate the Obama inauguration (I still can't quite believe it!). We'll be decorating the house with red, white and blue and serving dinner. Here's what I've got in mind so far.
Food: Depending on how many people RSVP, I'll either do a casual buffet: baked potatoes, Obama's recipe for chili, salad, Obama's favorite peach cobbler. Or a sit down dinner: a version of the official luncheon menu.
Drinks: The second magnum of champagne (we drank the first on election night). Pomegranate spritzers.
Decorations: White tablecloth, blue runner, red napkins. Candelabras with red bows tied on. Flags. Bunting.
Activities: Some presidential trivia, the TV tuned to news coverage, judging of fashion choices at the various balls.
