Last month my husband and I hosted a party that we donated for the Arkansas Reperatory Theatre’s Saints and Sinners Ball earlier this year. It was a white themed night complete with decor, attire, wine and the cusine (or most of it anyway).
My husband, Carter, (right) greeted our guests with white sangria.
I love an excuse to get out all my tableware and linens. This white party was a perfect reason and I threw in a little green to complement my dining room just for fun.
The first course was mixed greens with Granny Smith Apples, gorgonzola and a white vinegarette. It was paired with Ferarri Carano’s Fume Blanc, one of my very favorite whites.
The Fabulous Evette, owner of 1620, catered the meal which included seabass on a white corn succotash, garnished with rosemary and yes, red sauce. Ok so we cheated a bit but the flavor was divine! My husband and I had the best seats in the house at the kitchen table watching Evette and her crew bring this gorgeous meal to life.
Dessert was a warm blueberry cake with cream cream icing. It was so good, I couldn’t get a photo before our guests took a bite.
