It’s My Party & I’ll Have a Blast If I Want To!

Yesterday was completely and utterly one of the best celebrations I have ever had! My mom and dad did such a beautiful job setting up and I am so thankful that she has such a abundant circle of friends that helped out with everything too. About 100 people showed which was great being it was such a busy weekend with a lot of town and Father’s Day festivities going on. On top of that it was in the high 80’s--for once Mother Nature was nice to me! Hurray! :-) So now I’ve just been waiting to share with you guys—enjoy!

[The best party hostess ever—mom!]








[The beyond gorgeous cake my neighbor made—isn’t it great?! It was marble flavored with vanilla frosting!]



[The card table, blessings book, and the cake again.]







[All the grub! There was so much food and such a variety—it was all great. Lots of veggies/dip, baked beans, pulled pork sammy’s, cut up chicken asiago sausages and assorted Emeril sausages, potato salad, pasta salads, chips, a potato/hash brown bake, marinated hot wings, and even more things I can’t remember! It was delish and that’s all that counts right?!]


[Of course my favorite besides the cake was this veggie bouquet made by one of my mom’s good friends. It was beautifully put together and included leaf lettuce as the base, leeks for the sprouting white things you see, cucumbers, bell peppers, radishes, and carrots. Barely anyone touched it though because it was so neat! I need to make these for occasions def!]
