New Years Eve Cocktail Party

New Years Eve came early at this house...
November to be exact!

Okay...here's the story
My friend Ann is co-chair
of the magazine for
The Junior League of the Palm Beaches.
 For the holiday issue they wanted
to do a New Years Eve Cocktail Party
using the recipes from their two cookbooks,
Worth Tasting and Palm Beach Entertains.

And so she asked me to put together a cocktail party
and photograph it...right up my alley...I had
so much fun doing this.

Now that the issue has come out
I can share with you the pictures...
White Christmas decorations and clocks
were used as table decor

Asparagus Soup served in mini creamers

Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin Medallions
served on Creamy Corn Pudding Cakes

It's always time for dessert and champagne!

and don't forget the eggnog!

or the cherry topped brownies...

New Years Eve Menu

Texas Pepper Pecans
Palm Beach Pear Salad
Cucumber Cups with Cool Cucumber Dip
Creamed Asparagus Soup
Mushroom Puffs
Herbed Crusted Pork Tenderloin served on
Creamy Corn Pudding Cakes
Miniature Cream Cheese Delights
 with Melba Sauce
Chocolate Caramel Brownies
Cold Chocolate Cream

I hope everyone has a wonderful
New Years Eve and New Years Day!
