Red tie party: Apps.

We recently hosted a send-off party for our dear friends Kim & Danny who were moving back to our beloved San Francisco. Invite: Paperless Post.

The red choice was inspired by the People’s Republic of China and as it turns out just picking one color can make quite an impact!

I kept the appetizers SUPER simple… strawberries with a little creme fraiche mixed with a little sugar. 

Caprese salad… but I did find cute little toothpicks with a red ball on Shanghai Street that made them a lot more festive!

Sangria is a great red drink. Here is the recipe I used and everyone (but preggers me) loved!

I also served some red pepper crudites with spinach dip… appetizers really don’t have to be that complex! And as you’ll see tomorrow: the entrée was pretty heavy so it was nice to have something fresh and light.

Here we are with the guests of honor.

And here I am with my friend Kim… I miss her already! Although luckily I will get to see her while in San Francisco!

And here the Mr. is manning the bar with some rosé wine, another great red-ish cocktail.
