A Garden Party (in our own garden!)

Today our amazing neighbours, Jane and Patrick, threw a garden party for the house residents as well as some of their other Crystal Palace friends.  

Jane is a raw foods chef and we have had the enormous pleasure of sampling many of her delicious foods since we've moved to this house.  Today's spread was no exception:  everything was absolutely delicious!

She kept saying that she kept things simple (they picked up a few of the items such as the bread from a local Turkish grocery store), but it was just about as involved as I'd ever want to get when entertaining twenty people in my garden!

Serving Pimms in the summer is an absolute must if you live in London and Jane and Patrick didn't disappoint.  They had a nice large cauldron brewing!

 There was a fun assortment of people.  (Forgive Charlie's un-lady like pose in the shot below . . . )

Charlie had a great time!  She gorged herself on olives, devoured her very own cupcake and played lots of football (and by football, I mean soccer) with some new friends:

"be careful.  These leaves are sharp!" 

I snapped a few pics of the party from our kitchen window when we got back up to our flat:

Charlie got to eat her dinner while watching the remainder of the party.  She had fun watching everyone and kept yelling, "hiya" to everyone.  

Yes, that's cheese and spinach on a tortilla.  Time to go grocery shopping!
