We recently celebrated my little sister, Sara’s 21st Birthday. Being it was a Sunday night we opted for a sophisticated Cocktail Party, dinner at McCormick & Schmicks and cake instead of a late night out on the town!I was in charge of the Cocktail party and the menu included Blue Cheese Pecan Dip with celery, Fig & Goat Cheese Bruschetta, Hummus with veggies and pita chips, and a cheese platter. No cocktail party would be complete without cocktails! I mixed up Raspberry and Cranberry Cosmos plus wine and champagne. Before dinner we gave Sara our gifts…she loved the wine and champagne glasses, wine tags, napkins and other fun wine things we gave her. Her BIG 21st birthday gift was an amethyst David Yurman ring. It was beautiful and one of those might be going on my gift list very soon!At McCormick & Schmick’s we had a fun surprise. When I called to make the reservation and let them know we were celebrating Sara’s birthday, they informed me a birthday message would be on the menu! For dinner most of us ordered the Salmon stuffed with Brie, Shrimp and Lump Crab meat or the Halibut with sautéed leeks, Gnocchi and lump Crab. After dinner we enjoyed a family favorite cake, Pineapple Cake…and we were thoroughly stuffed, but it was all so delicious. Happy Birthday Sara!
