So at the end of August, I hosted a couple of garden parties. Cause when you go to all the trouble to put a zillion twinkle lights in your tree, electrocuting yourself a couple of times, and you get your yard all prettied up, you need to get some use out the beauty.
So on a Thursday night, I hosted about 25 ladies for our church's Mom's Night Out.
Then, on Saturday evening I hosted six lovely ladies over for ADORN. So it was everything shown on this post and THEN crafting added. More on ADORN in tomorrow's post "Garden Party-Part 2."
But for now, mamas relaxing and recharging under the twinkle tree.
Before the ladies arrived.
I provided the drinks. All the attendees brought an appetizer or dessert.
Drink station in my little summer house thing-y.
Love paper straws.
Perfect iced coffee recipe by Pioneer Woman (made with decaf espresso).
The cherry limeade recipe is also from Pioneer Woman, but you have to get that one out of her new recipe book.
Paula and Me ...thanks for all your help setting up!
Fireflies in a jar....tutorial to come soon, Paula and Lisa.
PART 2 of Garden Parties tomorrow.
