Christmas party menu

Few days ago we celebrated the Christmas party of my husband's office at our house. It was so much fun!!! And that's because I had to caterer the party too! And that was the fun for me: you know, planning the food, the decoration, setting the mood in the room, thinking of a tablescape...There've been few days of pure panick at the beginning of the week, because we decided to paint the house during the previous week-end and we didn't finish quite in time. But thanks to my wonderful husband - that worked late after work - the house was homey, warm and ready to have our guests.The idea behind this menu is an Italian wedding reception,with an international touch. Here the menu and some pictures!
