The Hampton Classic 2011. What we loved, what they wore and what we ate.

Our Table Decor Yellow Calla Lillies and Horses

Andrew's Cookies and Michael's Color Co-ordinated Devilled Eggs
         The Grand Prix marks the end of The Hampton Classic Horse Show, one of the pre-eminent equestrian events in the country.  It also means the end of our summer season.  Thanks to our very great friends, Jim Osburn and Michael Grim, we’ve gone to the show year after year.  It’s a wonderful afternoon of star gazing, Rose drinking, beautiful table settings and incomparable horsemanship--although the horses always seem to take a back seat to the extra-ordinary people watching.  This year was no exception.  And this year, Andrew and I were charged with providing the lunch.  It was a big success!  Michael provided Devilled Eggs which, as only he could, matched the table décor flawlessly.  We did a wonderful Summer Corn and Scallop Salad and Andrew went all out with two cookies and an incredibly delicious Peanut Butter and Jelly bar.  While the 8 guests at our table enjoyed the salad, the cookies reached a wider audience:  The VIP tents are a virtual catwalk of people who walk through greeting their friends and, in our case, snagging one of Andrew’s cookies.
