Ladies Activity Club: Fourth Anniversary!

The San Francisco Ladies Activity Club celebrated our fourth anniversary last Tuesday. How time flies when you're having fun!

For this party, we took on a project to make headbands and belts based on the amazing Rachel from Heart of Light's tutorials. (she also sells her wares on Etsy). A great "new economy" project since ribbon and fabric scraps are inexpensive. And easy even for people, like me, who aren't great at sewing.

To go along with the floral theme I made some orange blossom lemonade. I put out a huge veggie tray, a plate of puff pastry bites (garnished with radish roses) and blue corn chips with pecan dip. For dessert, we had rose petal and jasmine tea ice cream from Bombay Ice Cream on Valencia.

Very pretty ... but can you really just say "pecan dip" without giving us a recipe ... it sounds yummmy.

Audra Blair said...

I agree Emily with Sharon. Pecan dip sounds simply to yummy to not have the recipe for.

Emily said...

Ha! Recipe is as follows:
- Buy blue cheese pecan dip at Trader Joe's
- Empty into dish
- Top with sprig of rosemary
- Serve

Emily, did you just say here that you are not good at sewsing? I would like to publically proclaim that you are good at sewing. Ok, maybe not a seamstress, but've got skills.


Rachel said...

Yay! Glad you ladies had fun.

I'm in love with the belts! What a fun group!
