Claudie's daughter had her 22nd birthday. 17 people were invited. Pierre her husband was preparing the buffet, he worked the whole day, while we were visiting Arles.
He had prepared a very yummy buffet, which could have fed a whole army ! There were so many local specialities, I couldn't name them all and it's impossible to translate without writing down the whole recepe. Everybody ate with appetite and the sun was shining, it was a perfect day.
The boyfriend who is a pastry chef had baked these artistic cakes, reproducing Mellissa's paintings ! They tasted delicious, and nearly nothing was left.
It was a very amusing birthday party.
The rest of the afternoon, the men played boccia and only stopped when it started to get dark. It was quiet noisy, they had a lot of fun, while we had our fun watching them.
The birthday girl disappeared with friends to St. Tropez, while we ended the evening with eating up the left overs together with a couple of friends, and I suppose we will still have to eat for tomorrow !
