We have begun to receive photos from Garden Party 2012; in the next few days more photos will be posted. We tented the garden in anticipation of afternoon showers which never materialized; but as you can see, the tents created a magical effect that continued on into early evening.
Many thanks to the Garden Party Host Committee, lead by Cynthia Jones and to Tip and Connie Tipton who generously hosted the event at historic Deer House.
At the party our guests were able to Meet the Chefs - 5 restaurants on 8th Street sent their chefs to present their best new dishes. Senart's Oyster and Chop House served poached shrimp, oysters and cold watermelon soup; Spring Mill Bread served their winning brownies along with mini sandwiches and cakes; The Sweet Lobby, recent winner of the Food Network's Cup Cake Wars, shared their newly invented dessert, MacTops - a macaron/cupcake combination as well as their signature eclairs and cookies; Nooshi Sushi, shown below served a variety of sushi and rolls, and Tash served grilled kebabs. Nooshi Sushi and Tash will be opening late summer, 2012.
