So, D’s BD is right around the corner and this year I started planning in advance and have been brainstorming the perfect way to celebrate. There will be lots of merry making that weekend because his BD falls just one day ahead of when his cousin will ring in her big 5-0 at a delicious restaurant uptown. We figure since many of my in-laws are flying in, an intimate gathering in our apartment would be the perfect way to kick off the festivities! There will be 12 people coming over (thankfully we’ve managed to host double this number in our Manhattan-sized apartment at one point, so I think I can handle 12!) and I’m leaning toward a rustic themed Italian pizza party with a few modern twists. I’ve been bookmarking delicious recipes and images of items I’d like to incorporate into the party to make it feel extra special and I’ll post my inspiration board next week so you can see what I’ve come up with. If you have suggestions, inspired recipes, or links to pictures from your own events – I’d love to hear / see them!
