An elegant evening

What a wonderful evening of dinner & dancing! I am just now coming down from it all!
My evening highlights- romantic dinner music, rows of candles everywhere, watching Randy (who had never waited tables before!) serving our 80 guests, heart-shaped beets surrounding a most delicious salad on chilled plates, tasting orzo for the first time- yum, serving each course with lots of drama and fanfare, my hubby asking me to dance to "Save the Last Dance for Me" by Michael Buble, watching dear friends in deep conversation with one another and dancing cheek-to-cheek. (thanks Nancy for this pic of us dancing!)
Oh, I could go on and on. It was a magical night! One I will never forget!

The "A Time For US" teaching team at your service! I helped host the event along with these hard-working "waiters"!

How cute are these "heart-beets"! Oh be still my heart!

This gorgeous pic of our yummy, delectable dessert does not even do it justice!! What you can not know is that it is GINORMOUS! Made for each couple to share, but could have fed an entire table of eight! Really! Each couple took home most of their dessert to share with loved ones. What a show-stopper!
Thank you Sandi for capturing such special images of the evening! If you live locally, be sure to check out her photography web site here.

Looks like it was a lovely time. The beet hearts are really clever - I LOVE beets too. And those cakes do look really, really tasty.

Oh, my gosh, that looked like a wonderful evening. What a great idea to make hearts from beets. I must remember that if I ever have a Valentine dinner.
