Ash is such a cutie, She went to the dance with one of her buddies. Her boyfriend's parents won't let him take the same girl twice in a row. She didn't mind too much. One of Ash's good friends took him so they could all go together and still have a great time. I told them to make a goofy face. They weren't too creative. Ash got a little more silly when she got some red lipstick on. All the girls that came over looked great. There was six couples so a total of twelve. Since it was girls choice I offered to make dinner. I told them they just had to pay for the meat. They all wanted to save a bit of money so they quickly agreed. One of the girls even had a friend that would do some great pictures so they wouldn't have to spend too much on them at the dance. This was such a great way to go. They took a bunch of pics together and some with just couples. I can't wait to see all the fun pictures she took. Ash is between her date and her boyfriend. You can click on the pics to see them bigger with more detail. I wanted the table to look beautiful, they seemed to love the cranberries in the sprite. I hope they enjoyed this as much as a fancy restaurant.
For starters, a spinach, romaine salad with cranberries, almonds and a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.The main course was oven roasted beef tenderloin finished on the grill with shallot burgundy sauce. On the side bow tie pasta with spinach ravioli with pesto sauce and steamed broccoli (obviously).
Dessert was Oreo, chocolate, strawberry parfait with a tuxedo strawberry on top.
I would totally do this again. I had a great time and I think the kids really liked the food. I can't wait to hear how many dances her date let her dance with her boyfriend. ;)
