Summer dinner party

Posted June 25, 2014 by Christina

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending an amazing summer dinner party with a few other bloggers at Andrea from the French Basketeer's home.  It was a perfect night by the beach, just the lightest breeze and full of good company.  As always Andrea's home was beautiful and we even peeked into a few hidden corners on her property.  The combination of great food and conversation was really the highlight of the evening.

Each time I visit it inspires me to want to host a dinner party of my own- hopefully soon!

A few others??? By the number of chairs it was an ambitious number of guests – how wonderful. And what a glorious setting.

A lovely montage of images which truly captures the feel of a breezy summer evening. (She says as the winter winds twirl around her here in Melbourne !!)
