Jewelry Party

My best friend, Kelly makes jewelry, and I cook (aren't we talented girls...). So, our friendship is filled with great earrings, tasty food and lots of wine. Doesn't that sound like a party waiting to happen?! And that's exactly what we did, threw a Jewelry Party.

I love making appetizers for parties. Since people were looking at jewelry at this party, I wanted to make cutesy finger foods that could easily be eaten. I made dates, stuffed with Gruyere cheese wrapped in prosciutto; cucumber cups with diced tomatoes, kalamata olives, red onions, feta cheese and drizzled with balsamic vinegar; smoked salmon canapes with creamy pesto and topped with capers; and grape tomatoes stuffed with olive dip.

Earrings were purchased, food was eaten and lots of wine was consumed. I would say that was a very successful party.
