I had stopped off on my way in to work to get her a cake. I got a chocolate strawberry shortcake with strawberries on top and mini cannoli.
Doug was a wonder. He used to work for a non-profit company which did all kinds of parties to raise money so he knew how to put everything together. And what a job he did!
|He brought red pepper strips and garlic stuffed olives. The second plate was three bean salad with chickpeas, edamame and red beans and grilled asparagus.|
|The third plate was artichoke hearts with Swiss cheese and Harvarti cheese and the fourth plate was eggplant marinade with olive oil and vinegar mushrooms|
|We got two pizzas: one cheese and one white pizza with spinach.|
|There were every kind of juice and soda imaginable. There was even non-alcholic wine.|
|Diane brought in French onion dip, carrots and celery. There were also chips, but everyone ate those first.|
|A lighted bowl of Lindt chocolate truffles. Doug put battery lit lights in all the baskets and bowls to add ambience.|
|Here is the cake I got her. It was so good!|
|We lit a candle and sang "Happy promotion and upcoming wedding to you." Then Liz blew out the candle. We were all laughing so hard it was hard to sing.|
It's been a good day.
