I’m always delighted when people entertain in their homes, and I especially love theme parties. Last week, I attended a Moroccan-themed dinner party for my friend Nurit’s birthday. It was a testament to true sisterhood! Two of Nurit’s dear friends created a dinner in her honor and you could see and taste the love!

Our lovely hosts


The tables were decorated beautifully and the food was fantastic!  A fun and flavorful mezze plate, lamb and couscous, a classic chicken bisteeya, and chocolate mousse with strawberries for dessert.

All lined up and ready for dinner

There were so many different flavors, plus a beautiful table decorated with stunning china in shades of red and gold, jewelry as napkin rings, and flowers which came straight from the Westchester garden of one of our hostesses.
