Last night, my husband Jeff and I hosted a fantastic 40th anniversary party for my wonderful inlaws at the Valley Inn of Portsmouth, just a few miles from busy Newport. We did family style platters of the most tender beef tenderoin you've ever had and spicy Mozambique shrimp. Great place for a rehearsal dinner. We had a semi private room for 22 people, and the staff was fantastic.
Joe, the owner, was great to work with, kept me on budget ( or the budget my husband was keeping us to), and everyone had a great time.
I ordered an awesome vanilla cake from Fatulli's bakery of Middletown, and a hydrangea and lavendar rose bouquet from Chaves Gardens for my mother in law, who yes, cried. Did I mention this was a surprise? Very hard to keep it from them and I almost slipped sooo many times.
Great night overall!
