Last weekend, M and I hosted a little gathering to celebrate all the good things about spring 2011: warmer days, sprouting gardens and (yes!) graduation.
As a present to me, M took charge of the menu for the evening. He hunted down a couple of Melting Pot recipes (delight!): Wisconsin Trio and Dark Chocolate Raspberry (delight! delight!), and he enlisted the help of my parents for day-of prep and cooking.
Thanks to M (x) and Mum and Dad (xx), I had time to make some extra-fancy dishes on which to serve the berries and other tidbits for dipping in the extra-fancy fondue. So while the fam was melting Butterkäse and measuring Chambord, I selected a few items from my stash of thrifted goods, some vintage-y saucers and brass candlesticks, and set to work...
Weighting down candlesticks with classics.
