A Cosey Dinner with a Friend…

By | June 24, 2012

Last week one of my dear friends came over for dinner. I was really excited given that I had a few things I wanted to try out and let me say it must have been the easiest dinner I’ve ever put together! The first thing I put out is, of course, flowers.

I need to go shopping for some new vases for Ramadan soon.

Next, I had some baby pizza qay9ar and baby zaatar pizza on the table for us to munch on before dinner as we said our hellos and caught up with each other. We almost skipped dinner because of them.

It was the first time I’ve used my new pieces by farah bowls as well. I couldn’t wait till Ramadan.

As for the dinner? Well, the only thing I’ve made was the Raspberry Mojito and the Watermelon cooler. The Raspberry Mojito was gooood <3

The rest of the food I just had to unpack and place on serving plates. God bless 6alabat.com which I’ve used to order dinner one hour before my friend’s arrival and voila, I had a table full of food plus dessert too! Can you guess the restaurant :p

There were plenty of food but frankly I was too hungry to take any more pictures. After we had a lovely time over dinner, it was dessert and tea time. We opted for white tea with mint instead of the regular black tea.

It was the first time I’ve used my beautiful PBF estekanas as well. Each of us had a selection of mini desserts to dig into. Can you guess from where? Also ordered through 6alabat.

This is not from Taw9eel though :p

Tea is served, sowalef are continued.

My lovely friend has also brought me a funky housewarming gift from Fortune Cookie! How cute! I love Fred’s quirky items. Thank you Chill I loved them :*

I love throwing dinner gatherings! There is nothing like a cosey dinner at home with friends.”The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.” as quoted from the American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. He couldn’t be more accurate.

    That sure looks yummy and fun and I too like the coziness of a home rather than restaurants and malls. If I wanna get together with a friend I try to make sure it’s at a home rather than outside simply because you can “takhtheen ra7tech akthar” and with that it’s more comfy and fun!
