Life lately

Here are a couple of photos that I still have left from my London trip. I'm not sure that I will get the chance to go back before the end of this year as I don't have many free days left to take. The next three weekends I will be busy travelling some more: Paris, Madrid and Rome. I don't know yet where I will spend my two-week holiday that I am planning to take in November. Ideally I want to travel long distance... Hopefully I will have a clearer idea in September - October.

On Friday I hosted a party for friends, something I hadn't done for a while. I had ordered the food from a caterer and I am glad that it turned out well. I didn't have the chance to take photos of the amuse-bouches as I was busy welcoming and serving. But I can show you the main course and the dessert. 

Dinde Orloff (turkey), mashed potatoes and peas and carrots. 
Vegetarian lasagne and beans wrapped in bacon
Cheese platter
Crème brûlée
Mousse au chocolat
Tiramisu
The food was provided by 
Traiteur Kirsch
27, rue du Commerce
L-8220 Mamer
Luxembourg

I would order from them again because I was very happy with the delivery, the quality and quantity of the food. 
I received many lovely gifts from the guests: flowers, champagne, chocolates, beauty products, a cup and a book. 
Villeroy & Boch London cup

I guess my friends know me well... 
Of course it is nice to receive but for me it was equally a pleasure to host and have everyone have a (hopefully) good evening. It was fun to bring together friends that hadn't met each other before, my magician friend David did an impromptu show and finally, I'm sure that no one went home hungry.

  17. Hi, long time no see! I noticed that you changed the blog template again and it's really cool! You look so lovely on the first photo, did you change your hair colour? It looks a little bit darker. I'll check out the previous posts from London, hope you had a good time there! Hosting a party for friends with such a delicious food sounds great! I am sure they didn't go home dissatisfied!

  23. How gorgeous! I'd certainly have a dinner party catered if it's presented that well. How many holiday days do you get in Luxembourg? We get maximum of 30 days in the UK, that is, if you've been with an employer for at least 5 years. I'd love to have more free days to travel.
