My dearest friend Michelle threw a birthday for her adorable maltese, Coco Chanel, a couple of weekends ago and let me tell you, it was div-a-rific.
I’m serious; it was a party both foodies and dog would drool for. And they did! First of all it was held in Michelle and husband Don’s new event space next to their restaurant Volterra, here in Ballard known as the Drawing Room. Old brick combines with beautiful art and giant chandeliers making for a fantastic and beautiful space- I adore it.
Though there was great food for the 2 legged guests – the pups had quite the spread catered by Dining Dog Café– it included mini quiches and personalized cakes all served up on paper plate lined gold chargers. And for the doggie treat table I helped decorate individual to- go doggie bags that guests then could fill with the most adorable quiches, cannoli, cupcakes, and doggie biscuits made by Kool Dog Kafe.
