This high school reunion thing got out of hand. Need I tell you that this will be a one time only event? Just food, wine, not to mention a bigger coffee pot, new towels, AND a birthday cake + present because it is a guests’ birthday- left me with no money for flowers. SO, I dug out some annuals that did not die of heat, stole a wooden box from the husband’s side of the basement, and voila: Centerpiece for the dinner table.
And tomorrow off to Manhattan with out of town guests who want to check out that fresh hell that is Eataly. Why, why does everyone want to go into that overcrowded convergence of endless lines? Plus I have to pick up the birthday cake. Birthday girl is a professional wedding cake designer, so I’m not even going to try. Lady M it is.
