I have been having a lovely summer vacation – beginning with the Ornish Launch Party and ending with a weekend at Westercon65. I’ll talk about the convention next week, as this post is to be dedicated to the Launch Party.
It was a lovely evening. I really enjoyed the new format of having a series of entertainments including the reading of “The Summer Valley.”
It was a long feast, as each course was a drawn out affair with one of the poems or musical numbers included. I was particularly pleased with the Leek, Mushroom and Cream Cheese Crapes and the Meyer Lemon Creampuffs.
I spent a lot of time on the decorations for this party, creating banners and flags. We got a huge number of flowers from the Farmer’s market (where I got most of the produce too!) and also picked them from my P-Patch garden.
Here are few pictures of the evening: decorations, food preparation and the guests in their regalia.
