Wow you are a very elegant host

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Well Asta DAWLING... you have once again put on the DAWG fur a Peep PAWty.

Happy Birfday Chris!!! I can tell that your dinner was Delicious and the company... MAHVELOUS...

It is good that WE weren't all there though... belclaws this was obviously a more Quiet and DIGnified event... unlike some of the BASHES we have had in your apartment. I'm just sayin.. girrrrrl. Although some of us would have been willing to help you with the DANGEROUS job of FOOD TASTING... hehehehe

Finn said...

Look at that party! And look at that trifle! Delicious! Looks like a blast!

WFT Nobby said...

What a lovely party. And well done for making sure that everything was just so. That trifle looks almost as good as the one that my human Granny makes whenever I go and visit.
But oh Asta, I do so sympathise with the long hair/sick Mommi/no grooming thing - I have exactly the same problem here.
Toodle pip!
PS I want you to know that I would always welcome you to Scotland, however you pronounce your w's/r's

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

You did a fabulous job of hostess there Asta sweety. Just look at that trifle its amazing. I so hope your mummy is feeling better soon. Hugs GJ xx

Mimi said...

Asta, you & yours have a wonderful flair for celebrating life! Thanks for sharing that with us.

Hi Asta,

Firstly - I MISSED YOU!

Secondly - you did a Most Wonderful job of hosting that dinner. And you wanna know a secret? I got drooly, too, cuz all that food looked super dee-lish! I sure wish I coulda been there. I've never had a trifle. Is it anything like a Twinkie?

Wiggles & Wags,

You have such a beautiful home, Asta, and you always host such a beautiful dinner. Mom says those are two of her favorite foods, osso buco and risotto. How cute that trifle is with candles in it:)

Happy Birthday to your cousin Chris. That is our human brother's name too.

Gus said...

Oh Miss Asta:

I got dwooly just looking at the pictures of that dinner. I likes Osso Bucco, but you can have my share of the ricey stuff. Not my fave.

But any dinner with you and your Mommi and Daddi is a wonderful one.


White Dog Blog said...

Elegant and lovingly set as usual! Bravo! Osso bucco is second only to lamb shanks in my book... imagine if your mommi and mine just spent a weekend cooking for us!

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Happy Birfday, Chris...

Asta, you did a terrorific job putting dat pawty togedder!

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Oh Asta, that's a great "shin-dig" you put on there. My mum loves to entertain but she HATES all the house cleaning and polishing that has to be done along with it.

I get to be taste tester too - like I check their beef before the casserole, or their cheese before the crackers etc..... it is an important job!

I would have done anything to check their trifle!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Your the bestest hostest ever! I'm kinda hairy also, but because Mommy was away with my flat self. I hope your Mommy feels better.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We wish WE could've been there too. Everything looked just as beautiful as we remember it from, oh, so long ago.

We so wish we could get Moma out of her frump/slump/dump/bodunk or whatever it is that she's bothered by. 'Cause we really really miss you. And so does she. We know it.

We'll try our best to deliver AstaSmoochieKisses (just like you taught us) and we'll cuddle up close and whisper reminders to her. In the meantime, know we're thinkin' of you. All the time.

Much love
Your long lost 'doptive BruvverJake and SissieJawsFergi (teehee)

The Daily Pip said...

Oh Miss Asta what a beautiful party! I sometimes have trouble minding my manners, too - like when my little sissy walks (more like dances) around while she is eating - I can't help but follow her around and grab any little bite that falls.

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: My mom has been quite lax about getting me groomed. I can barely see because my fur is SO LONG. She finally made an appointment for me this weekend. Thank goodness!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Asta your home is so gorgeous! And the party looks fantastic.
Oh I would love to be there with you and all that good food.

What a wonderful birthday celelbration for your cousin Chris

Pippa said...

Asta your mommi always puts on such wonderful dinners in your elegant apartment. I think you and your mommi should give some tips to Misery. Although she is getting better, and has cleared most of the rubbish off our dining room tables. Hope your mommi's cold is going away now.


STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Miss Asta. Your post made Mum extra happy. First because its always wonderful to celebrate a birthday with family and friends (Happy Birthday Chris) and secondly because you had a trifle birthday.

My dear sweet angel Nana always made trifle and my mum grew up eating it all the time and even when she was big like now, her mum would bring her a special trifle on her birthday cause she just loved them so much. So thank you for sharing the trifle birthday. We loved it. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Molly the Airedale said...

You are most definitely the hostess with the mostess, Asta! We are drooling over that trifle too!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Dexter said...
