Dinner Series – January 13, 2015

We had our first dinner series of the year. Keeping with the season we went with a Nordic winter theme for our decor complete with a faux fur white table runner, “snow” filled vases, pine cones, birch branches and white roses. Guests enjoyed twelve courses of food.
