Julie and Julia Party

Due to the movie Julie and Julia there was talk around blog world about hosting parties with that theme. I loved this idea and did my own. It was a lot of fun. My guests arrived and had dinner and then we went to see the movie and came back for dessert. I used a Julia Child recipe for dessert and it turns out the recipe is in the movie! How cool is that?!

I used a vintage white cotton and lace patchwork table cloth, vintage peanut butter glasses, coasters with beaded trim and my white plates. I also had Julia Child quotes at each place setting.

Here is the recipe I used for dessert. Very light and fluffy. This would be a fun party to do once the movie is out on DVD. I had planned on demonstrating my Julia Child recipe, but with the movie time couldn’t fit it in.
