Leigh celebrated a big birthday at the ranch Saturday with family, friends and a delicious catered dinner by Mimi of Mimi’s Plates.
Before we left, a few shots of Samantha in her party dress:
And with Boo:
And then over at the Ranch, in front of the tree:
The table all set for fancy dinner:
Leigh-Lo’s name tag:
Christmas tree ornament:
In the living room, Mom and Sam:
Let’s have some cocktails!
Family portrait by the tree:
Unfortunately, we took this family portrait before half the family arrived. Chris, Laura and Alexis had a terrible time with their flight, had to rent a car and hit a ton of traffic. They didn’t arrive til nearly 8! Boo.
The salmon tartare with wasabi cream (delishy!):
Thai spring rolls, both vegetarian and vegan:
Also delishy! And we missed my favorite hors d’oeuvre of the evening, the wild mushroom crostini. I was upstairs putting Sam to bed and forgot to take a photo when I came down!
The gang at the party:
The first course, a grilled endive and radicchio salad with goat cheese and pecans:
And the second course, duck with a blackberry demi glace, with cous cous, roasted vegetables:
Sorry for the horrific photos! Too dark!
A funny photo of Laura and Greg:
Peggy and Leigh:
Leigh’s birthday cake!
Happy birthday Leigh!
