Birthday Party on Blue Horizons

"I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the city of Savannah."
 ~ William Tecumseh Sherman (February 08, 1820 - February 14, 1891
Did you guys have a restful holiday?  I had the most peaceful two weeks...almost to the point of  being lazy.  But now I am fully recharged and ready to face 2012!  Here is something fun I did yesterday.  I went aboard on this gorgeous 70' Hatteras, named Blue Horizons as a guest/caterer/photographer for my dear friend Charlie, for his birthday celebration.  

Look at this huge upper deck!  To truly appreciate the historic Savannah, you have to view it from the water.  This floating B and B and beautiful venue is locally owned and operated by Savannah Cruise Inn Yacht Charters 

Master State Room

The yacht's galley has the state of the art appliances and was great to work in.      

 I wanted to create a simple dinner menu...but all bite-size:  
Mini-venison burgers with pepper jack cheese, Grilled pineapples and strawberry on skewers.

Lemon Caesar Salad in Parmesan Cups.

Shrimp Cocktail in Cucumber cups, Ahi Tuna Bites and not pictured Fried Egg Rolls.  

As the sun set, the lights around the city of Savannah illuminated and sparkled as 30 guests on board mingled, conversations flowed, and hearts knitted stronger in friendship. 

The birthday cake presented by Charlie's beautiful wife, Linda. 


What a wonderful evening it was, spent with friends and family, filled with laughter and warm wishes.  
What a lovely way to start the new year. 
Happy 2012 to you!
