This past week, we enjoyed a "groovy" 1960's inspired meal- fondue! Here's what we did:
For the fondue dinner, I chose a colorful "flower power" type fabric for our table topper- sooo cute! We just used simple white plates and bright yellow napkins.
I accented the napkins with sunflowers to continue our "flower power" 60's theme.
In the center of the table I placed the fondue platters and bowls as well as used simple bud vases with tall orange Gerber daisys and small glass votives.
Since I did not have an actual fondue set, I just raised some bowls on ramekins to give it a cool look!
I loved the look of the super tall orange flowers!!!
To keep things simple, I only made 2 fondue dips- one cheesy, one chocolatey...how can you go wrong with those?
For the cheesy fondue, I chopped up things like apples, bread, salami, carrots and celery-
It was a hit!!!
For the chocolate fondue, I cut up strawberries, bananas, pound cake and pretzels...YUM!!!
The fun part of this dinner is "playing with your food" (how many times do we get to say that as parents at the dinner table!?) We had fun making different combinations on our skewers and figuring out our favorites. We also talked about the 1960's era, some of it's history and events...we should have played some 60's music, but were having too much fun eating and talking, we forgot!
This is a delicious (but messy) dinner...we all had chocolate faces by the time it was over, but I can't think of a better way to spend an evening having fun around the dinner table with your family!
