St. Patricks Dinner Party

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Last Saturday evening our friends Ron & Dody had 6 of us (Mickey & I - Jack & Mary - Don & Barbara) over to their newly renovated and decorated condo to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Our hostess, Dody, peeking out from the kitchen into the dining room as she finished the last minute touches.

The host, Ron, as he prepares to serve us delicious corned beef with cabbage, carrots, and potato. Already on the table were hot dark & light rye bread, green applesauce & a green jello/whip cream salad.

Note the brown paper sacks on the buffet - I'll tell about them later.

Then we started hamming it up for the camera!!!

Dody always decorates everything up real cute when she entertains. She had green & gold Mardi Gras beads for all us gals to put around out necks. She had gold coins and leprechauns and 4-leave cloves all around. Mickey & Mary made this "St. Pat's Tree" out of the ones near them.
In those brown paper bags were gifts for each of us from Ron & Dody. Here is Mickey's little leprechaun standing by a mushroom

Here is my little Bonsai tree with a little leprechaun in the branches.

As always a grand time was had by ALL when the 8 of us get together.
Thanks Ron & Dody for a wonderful evening

What a nice evening together. Your friend is very thoughtful. It looks like you all had a great time!

I've answered your question about Natural Bridge in my comment section. Thank you for visiting. I've been very busy with my new business and haven't had much time for writing. I miss it.
