Private Dinner Party, Birthday Celebration, Romsey




I catered for two Private Dinner Parties this weekend, both being fantastic evenings for which I produced two great menus. My second was in a beautiful house in Romsey for a jovial group of couples celebrating their friend's Birthday in style with a four course Private Dinner Party in their home. I used to go to school nearby and it was great to come back to the area to such a grand home with a luxurious and well appointed kitchen. I arrived early to set up, being welcomed very warmly, and enjoyed a cup of tea whilst preparing the canapes for the guests arrival. I had a waitress with me to serve the canapes as well as the arrival drinks which is an extra service I can provide. This made the evening more relaxing for the hosts and they were able to enjoy the food without the hassle of getting up to serve drinks.
