… through to the dinner that night… first the décor


and table settings…

Above and below, the groaning and beautiful food tables – all the accompaniments and more to a roast lamb on the spit!



All that’s left for me to say is, Sho’keach Lisa – you and your team of workers did an amazing job of the food, the decor and the day as a whole.  And it’s not often that the caterer, the party planner, the decorator is the hostess as well. Kol Hakavod! You are one talented lady!
Thank you again Lisa, Dean, Dyllan and Nikki for having us share this fabulous celebration with all of you.
(If anyone wants to use Lisa’s services, contact me for her number) :). I’m serious actually!
