The Hynovia Launch party was the perfect end of summer evening. I’d had some trouble coming up with decorations, until I found some lovely Indian bedspreads in golds and reds and browns. After that it was pretty easy to hang lanterns, pin up my sister’s sari fabric and transform our living room into a cozy salon full of warm late summery/early autumnal colors. Our usual star lanterns fit right in. One of my guests even loaned me a lovely Turkish coffee set for decoration:
We didn’t use it – well, except for our littlest guest, Ellie, who discovered that the goblets were fun to teethe on.
The menu came out wonderful – lots of bright flavors – as well as very pretty. The Nut and Feta balls were a big hit and I have not forgotten that folks wanted the recipe. I plan to make them again next week and post the recipe and photos up here.
In addition to the feast, we read the Hynovian short story "Azura of Carantia" and my sister did henna tattoos on those who wanted them.
Here are some more photos of the guests, the food and the decorations:
