Lunar New Year Celebration

Chuc Mung Nam Moi! That means Happy New Year in Vietnamese. We celebrated the Year of the Rabbit this afternoon with some of our closest friends and family. Colors like turquoise, pomegranate, and tangerine were pulled from the paper lanterns to create a more modern tablescape.

Handmade Red Envelopes with Lucky Money

Ngoc Mam (Fish Sauce), Com Chien (Fried Rice), Cha Lua, Banh Cuon, Cha Gio (Egg Rolls)

We also had a little birthday celebration for our friend, a big Twilight fan who was born on the Year of the Pig.  Don't you just love the fondant pig with the vampire fangs? Another amazing cake from Loan.

The ink and wash painting was a hit with the kids.
