Celebrating Caroline's Birthday with Friends in Albuquerque

6/08/10 - Albuquerque, NM

Christopher & Margaret host a decadent fete in honor of Caroline's Big Day

Back in April, when Christopher found out that Caroline was having a birthday in June, he graciously and enthusiastically offered to host a small dinner party in her honor.  When June 8th rolled around, it was a beautiful, balmy summer day - perfect for a birthday party!  That evening, Caroline and Scott, along with friends Julia, Jeremy, Petra and Joe, gathered in Christopher and Margaret's tranquil backyard  for a delightful evening meal.  Upon their arrival, Christopher greeted his guests with mojitos and hors d'oeuvres of prosciutto-wrapped goat cheese and delicious grilled shrimp.  After a bit of mingling in the garden, we were seated to a casual, yet elegant alfresco meal of avocado salad with caviar, grilled chicken with fruit salsa, eggplant halves and of course a homemade chocolate cake complete with candles and champagne.  What an evening!  The food was fantastic and the company even better (if that's possible!); Caroline felt like one lucky birthday girl indeed!
