Our third annual Festivus went very smoothly. We went really simple on the food this year. Served sparkling, a red, and a white. And various beers. No liquor. I think people were still well-satisfied.
2007 Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône , 2008 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, and NV Gloria Ferrer Sparkling
Some last minute preparations as we waited for our helper. (Turned out she was a last minute replacement.)
Not everyone got the white memo...but still looked festive.
Desi topped one with pâté!
Gougères and other simple bites
Cookies and cream puffs (aka choux à la crème, as Françoise insisted as she put on her tiger coat )
Sedate vs costume-y
Jeff wins the best white outfit award. By. Far. He said he wore the vintage leather jacket "during [his] Wharton days." (What kind of business was he studying?)
