Celebrating Diwali with Family and Friends 2017

Last weekend we celebrated the Indian festival of Diwali with a big party for our family and close friends. On the agenda for the evening was fun, friends, family, food, and sparklers. I think we covered it all on this wonderful evening.  Here are some photos of this lively dinner celebrating Diwali.

  1. Hi, Thanks so much for including us in your Diwali celebration. Sorry we left early but I was so tired and wanted to get to bed before 11. Your house is beautiful, as always. LOVE all your flowers in the kitchen. You have a special talent. Also, thank you for the gifts. You are definitively the best and most gracious hostess.
