Jars with flowers

I am a complete sucker for a jar with flowers in it, hence when Orto opened up a couple of months ago I couldn't wait to check it out!  Along with two wonderful girlfriends who are also part of the flowers-in-jars appreciation club, we grazed over piles of delicious sharing plates:

The cocktails come in jars too - complete with old school stripey paper straws - this was a divine pomegranate caipirinha.
A whole roasted artichoke with a heart of goats cheese (!) accompanied by a 'deconstructed dumpling'.
As they only take reservations at 6pm and 8pm, they turn tables on each of those hours.  We arrived at 6pm but were edging close to the next crowd of people by the time we ordered our trifle to share.  This meant that we were carted from our table to the lounge out the front - but with blankets, outdoor heating lamps and more jars (this time with candles) it turned out to be the perfect way to end the evening:

Trifle in the twinkling dark
Thank you Hannah and Amy for another great tri-birthday dinner!
