Dottie's Pretty Party


Each and every month a group of girls  get together for dinner, conversation, sharing, catching up and laughter.  We have known each other for over thirty years.

It happened a long time ago  when we met through NAWBO...National Association of Women Business Owners.

What started as wonderful and talented business owners, looking  to  support each other, evolved into a caring group of  amazing friendships.

Tonight it was Dottie's turn to host and I now  understand  that saying 'hostest with the mostest'.  Dottie's  home was festive, elegant, warm, welcoming and oh so beautiful ! Everyone was relaxed and made to feel so special.

The hors d'oeuvres, the place settings, the decorations, the music and the fabulous home cooked meal with special salad and poppy seed dressing, to the stuffing and moist turkey with a wonderful fruit glaze to the sweet potatoes and all the other sides, were as pretty as they were delicious. Even the a napkins were folded in a holiday theme.


A gift exchange game ended this delightful festive evening.  Due to the travel distance, a  number of the girls stayed overnight and I am sure that was one fun slumber party.
