If the phone rings one more time

I think I am going to loose my mind. JT and I have officially concurred this evening that most people have no clue what is involved with putting together a nice dinner party, theme event. For 2 days, two I say my phone might have only rang about 6 times... at the last count today I believe was 46.. YES 46 times...I know that everyone is just as excited as we are for the festivities in the evening, and I don't mean to sound ungrateful for their excitement and concern, but for every phone call, it takes away from what needs to be done. I started with 120 things to do on my list today. I am down to 32 for Saturday. That my friends was just the 'loose ends" list too. It was nice to have JT home today while the sproglets were off at school... he was a HUGE help. Well, when he wasn't complaining that there was "so much to do".

Aside from the roasted marrow and the whipped mashie bar, the finalities that will be scattered around will include:

Pumpkin Roll
White Chocolate Raspberry Cheese ball with vanilla crisps
Pecan praline fluff with grahams
Apple Banana Bread
German Chocolate Zuchinni Bread
Olive Oil bread and dipping oil
and a platter of veggies and dip fit for the hamster....

everything is done except the roasted marrow and mashies. I will get the mashies together in the afternoon and slow bake them and toss the bones in after the first guest arrive.

Oh, and for those of you following along, YES I made it back to get my case of wine today... actually lets say "cases" of wine. They had another very reasonably priced wine on sale and then discounted again for case pricing, I just could NOT resist!

no new photos from me today, sorry to dispoint.... I promise a feast for the eyes and soul the next time.

However, I shall leave you with a photo from the Pottery Barn recent catalog collection. I just LOVE the cat tin and the tiny little pumpkin candles...
