As I mentioned in a prior post I recently celebrated a significant birthday.
And I debated on whether to let it go by relatively unnoticed or to embrace it. Ultimately I decided to embrace it with a garden party.
It was the perfect opportunity to make some of the decorations and foods I've seen on Pinterest. I made doily bunting with twine, doilies and muffin cups, all purchased from the dollar store. Then I sewed several doilies together to make a backdrop for the drink and sandwich table, all of which my husband patiently helped me to hang up.
I borrowed drink dispensers from friends and tried out some new sangria and drink recipes. I'll share the recipes in a future post.
The weather cooperated with a sunny,warm day, a switch from the cool, wet August we had been living through.
I got out all my white linens and decorated with fresh flowers from the market.
A closer look at one of the flower bouquets I created.
I would be remiss without thanking my husband, Mom, daughters and sister all who helped me with food prep and last minute set up.
It was a day I will thoroughly remember.
Future posts to come with recipes and the friends who helped me celebrate!
