Outdoor Winter Parties

March 8th, 2009

As someone who has hosted several Faux-Thanksgiving parties over the years in tiny Brooklyn apartments, I am particularly impressed with this party set-up found on flickr (Thanks, Lia!). I think it looks sort of magical. Sort of ghetto. And simply, awesome.

How often I have found myself in a situation with many eager chefs and not enough room for them and their Thanksgiving dishes. But escorting them out to a bubbled tarped tented area is the perfect way to deal with many guests and a small apartment. Plus, it definitely doesn’t feel like dinner at Aunt Kay’s, so Thursday won’t feel like a rerun when you finally get to the real Thanksgiving events.

I applaud these hosts’ creativity and may borrow this idea come next November. See their full set here.
