In celebration of my friend, Joan, and her daughter, Mekenna’s visit to Casa Becci, we decided to have ‘una grande festa’ for Domenica delle Palme:Palm Sunday 2009.  Family and friends are due to arrive tomorrow and Mekenna, my creative little helper, helped design the table settings in between games of hide and seek.  mckenna1
