ISES the Indiana Chapter of the International Special Event Planners collected pasta for us at their holiday party. And do they know how to throw a party. The event was held at our world class Children's Museum.
The museum is also the home of the largest permanent blown glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. It is 43 feet tall, 4800 pieces of glass and weighs 18000 pounds. My photo is just a small portion of the piece.
The food was great and right up my alley - I started at the macaroni and cheese bar. What a fun idea. You scooped your mac and cheese in to a fancy martini glass and could add any of the toppings - scallions, roasted tomatoes, ham, grilled chicken and shrimp. Mac and cheese and roasted tomatoes, yummy.
There was also a make your own wrap bar, build your own burger station and a root-beer float area.
My favorite was the decorate your cookie table.
The museum was closed to the public and their were only about fifty of us. I felt like we had run of the place. Part of the Winter Wonderland display was a giant one-story slide. I went twice. I'm convinced that it was all the more fun because I was wearing a skirt.
Doesn't sound much like work, does it?
