Last month, our good friends Tracey and her husband Dave invited me and my hubby for Friday dinner at their home. We had fabulous Mexican cuisine. Next week, another good friends, Percy and his wife Kookie are inviting us for an authentic Indian cuisine at their home. We truly enjoy intimate dinners like these ... good food and wine + wonderful friends = pure bliss.
For our turn, hubby and I decided to invite both couples at home and we will prepare a fusion of Japanese and Korean dishes. As early as now, I am working on the invite and place cards for this occasion.
Very timely, Embellish magazine's current challenge is to create a party-themed projects. How perfect timing is that?
Keeping the Japanese/Korean theme in mind and the color scheme from the challenge, I got some chopsticks from the kitchen, took out my Hero Arts Japanese dolls collection, and my favorite red chiyogami paper. After an hour in my craft studio, here's my dinner invite ...
For place cards, I plan to use inverted Japanese tea cups with our guests' names on every cup and assemble the chopsticks and a stamped Japanese dolls on top like this ....
Soooo lovely! I'm sure our friends would love this treat together with my hubby's special Korean beef BBQ with kimchi, miso soup, sushi, ebi tempura and mochi balls with green tea ice cream for dessert!
Can't wait to party!
