Our Summer Soiree!

Well, our first annual summer soiree was a success! Rather than tell you how awesome it was, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. So here we go..!
{Drink Station}
{party cups: plastic cups + washi tape + paper straws}
Lemons & Limes bowls - Target Dollar Aisle

{oh yes - best prize ever}

{our outdoor rug arrived just in time for the party}
{my sweet friend Kristen, arranged all of the flowers for the party}
{another Target dollar aisle find}
Recognize this lady!? That's my friend Laura from Our Life in the Queen City!
{THE HOT DOG BAR!!!!!!}
Hotdog baskets // Basket Liners // Silverware // Napkins
For the potato chip bags, I picked up mini red paper bags from Michaels and cut them in half with a pair of scalloped scissors.

The dessert table was so amazing that most people ate their dessert before dinner.
{fruit pizza}
{dirt pudding}
And the winner of the goldfish...JD & Eric! A joint custody agreement is in the works.
 We are so thankful for such wonderful friends! The party could not have been better!

OMG I swear, I went to college with the girl in the blue dress, Natalie I think is her name, I had a class with her when I went to Greensboro, or she looks very similar to the girl I am thinking of! Ha! I LOVE the buckets that hold your silverware, I want those! And also the lime and lemon bowls! Such a great event!

  21. Love all the details of this party - so cute! Question for you on the outdoor furniture and rug - do you have to move it/the cushions indoors when it rains? I'm looking at different pieces for our screened-in porch and deck, but wondered if I'd always be schlepping the stuff in and out...

  33. Such an adorable party! I saw the lemon & lime bowls at Target recently but didn't realize they had 'lemon', 'lime', etc. on them until I saw your post so I ran by there yesterday and snagged some. If only Target would create an entire dollar spot store, in addition to Target of course.
