Meet the Locals

Last week, I hosted a 40th Birthday Party for a very special friend.

Fortunately,  I had some amazing help…

Dan Rice of Aux Delice Foods in Greenwich, CT, did an amazing job with the food and menu.
Dan also helped me with the rental chairs in the picture above,  since my regular dining room
chairs could not accommodate all of the guests.
He was part shrink and part party planner for me!



And I was lucky enough to persuade local
Pound Ridge resident,
Michael George,
to drop off some arrangements
on his way home from work.
His floral design company of the same name
is in New York City.
Aren’t these arrangements so pretty?

Michael does the flowers for all the big fashion houses
and has worked for Martha Stewart as well!

  6. The party planner (that would be you) is very good. It takes some good back up to get it all together. Love the hyacinths and the Dining room as well. Well done and what a lucky friend indeed. pgt
