Casual Buffet Engagement Party

This weekend we did such a sweet engagement party in a backyard here in Silverlake. Flowers were arranged in Mason jars and vintage vases for whimsy and cheer, and the food was a casual buffet where guests mingled and eventually found themselves singing to everything from Waylon Jennings to Eminem as a warm summer breeze embraced them all on this lovely evening of celebration. Here was the menu:
