There was live music and a DJ for dancing after dinner, and a champagne toast at midnight.
I am always inspired after this party. One of these days I will serve an 8 course meal. The only problem is figuring out how to prepare and serve it AND be able to sit with my guests and enjoy it.
Happy New Year Everyone!
