This week we would like to highlight a recipe from The Gathering of Friends volume 1 and offer one of you a copy of your own. I received this beautiful book as a Christmas gift from a dear friend several years ago. I spent the holidays going thru it page by page and dreaming of all the gatherings I would host that coming year. It even inspired one of my New Years Resolutions that year:)
I LOVE how this book includes 16 different gathering ideas, complete with a unique theme, coordinating recipes, table setting ideas, shopping list, and even a page for notes. This book is full of inspiration and directions to make entertaining easy and fun! I have since gifted this volume many times for birthdays, Mothers Day and Weddings and it has always been recieved with rave reviews!
