After enjoying some of our favorite wines & delicious appetizers,our guests learned many great tips on exciting table settings, floral arranging, & entertaining. And this time we showed easy ways to compose great tabletops & bookcases. Everyone went home with many great ideas to rearrange their cherished belongings. Any many of you went home with some unique accessories for your home.
As promised, the following are some of the recipes of our delicious appetizers:

1 pt.grape tomatoes,halved
1 md. cucumber, peeled, seeded, & cubed
1/4 c. fresh chopped parsley
1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese
1/4 c. basil Parmesan vinaigrette
1 (9oz.)package frozen pastry shells
Mix first 5 ingredients. Fill thawed pastry shells just before serving. Serve immediately.

1 lb. cream cheese
1 C. traditional pesto sauce
1/2 C. butter
Rothschild Farms Raspberry Hot Pepper Preserves

Whip cream cheese & butter. Add pesto. Line spring-form pan or 3" tall cake pan with plastic wrap and press mixture into pan. Cover and chill overnight. Un-mold on tray and top with raspberry hot pepper preserves. Serve with baguette slices or crispy crackers.
