A dozen pair of hands contributed to this beautiful, colourful spread of food...
... supported by a pair of the cutest tiny feet.
A most fascinating Anita Cake in the blog's history was handed over - somerville jardin of carrots, lettuces, tomatoes, cabbage, radishes. And what's a jardin, even if a cake, without cats.
Gourmet hands were busy all day making rolls of an excellent pork loin roast.
Other beautifully manicured hands busied themselves with a range of fancy munchies...
... while more exotically manicured hands served the couscous salad.
Parties I go to always have cats. And this sweetly cooperative Jazzy cat took the Party of Hands theme very seriously as he patted hands with one cat lover or another (mainly yours truly).
While others opted to pat the safer option of my fondant somerville jardin cats.
Thank you all, old and young, infants and cats, for making this such a memorable, sweet fun party. I miss you all very much every day. Here's to planning our next party.
