How to Watch

In a series of Instagram Stories on August 25, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member showed off the incredible setup, which featured a stunning white and gold floral centerpiece to match their table setting for the dinner. For a pop of color, Fleur Couture added purple flowers to the display as well. 

With the exception of their daughter Gabriella, who Jennifer noted in a separate Instagram post is currently in Turkey with Jennifer's father and sister, each member of the family had custom cutout name place cards. 

Jennifer also shared a peek at the menu for the evening, prepared by Beat Bobby Flay winner Chef Kelvin Fernandez. In her Instagram Story, the menu included watermelon salad, surf & turf, and truffle mashed potatoes, among many other items within the welcomes bites and three-course meal.

In a separate Instagram post, Jennifer showcased another menu with items including three-cheese mac & cheese, romaine salad, and filet mignon.

Of course, the dinner concluded with the most incredible dessert, a two-tier white cake from RHONJ favorite Palermo's Bakery. The confection featured a detailed design of a couple embracing while holding five gold heart balloons that had each of their children's names, Gabriella, Jacob, Christian, Justin, and Olivia, on display. Naturally, the cake had a bit of sparkle as well. In addition to a silver "18" topper, an edible bedazzled border was placed around the bottom of both tiers. 

Following the special night, Jennifer gushed about the meal in her Instagram post. "What a great night!!" she wrote before thanking all of the vendors and her family for the evening. "Thank you to my Olivia! This was all her idea. And last but certainly not least Thank you to my amazing husband- without whom none of this would even be, and I mean None of all of this."
