Mediterranean Grill Party!

It's hard to believe that my little man is growing up so fast! He's now 3 months old (seriously, where did the time go?!) and to celebrate and introduce our little one to family and friends, my husband and I threw a party... a 'meet the baby' gathering, if you will. Since we love throwing a party with some kind of food theme, we fired up the grill for a Mediterranean Grill Party!...

Mediterranean cuisine is a perfect choice during the summer. Aside from grilling some of the dishes on our menu, it's on the healthy side and so colorful on the table. Here's the menu I prepared (with some help from my husband)... stay tuned and check back for the recipes of these dishes all this week!

Olive Tapenade over Cream Cheese
Vegetable Crudites

Greek Chopped Salad


Dilled Couscous

Balsamic & Oregano Chicken Kabobs

Roast Leg of Lamb

Fresh Fruit Kabobs

Honey Walnut Brie Tartettes

Here are some table shots of the spread! We had our dining table set up with all the savory items and our home office was where we had our desserts and drinks...

And we can't forget all the smiles that were at the party! It was great seeing such old and dear friends, many of which came from the city...
