My decoration theme was blue and white like the Greek flag. As a center piece I used a bouquet of Violets which is one of the national flowers of Greece. Everything I used I bought from second hand stores except the candles which I bought from my local grocery store.
I had the Nikos Skalkottas station on Pandora playing on my iPad as dinner and dessert background music.
We had the Greek wine Retsina which I found at one of our large liquor stores.
(Warning! This wine is very woodsy and takes a lot of getting used to!)
In true Greek fashion I served a glass of ice water along with the wine.
For dessert I made Baklava which I served with coffee sweetened with condensed milk just like the Greek do.
Σας αγαπώ μαμά, σας ευχαριστώ για όλα όσα έχετε κάνει για μας!
(I love you mom, thank you for everything you have done for us!)
