Summer Soiree Inspiration

Matt and I are throwing a summer kick-off party on Saturday. As you would expect, I’ve been planning this party for months now which has required writing and re-writing all kinds of lists. I love lists. So for my party, I’ve written approximately 6 lists which include: Party Supplies to Buy, Groceries to Purchase, Things to Clean, House To-Do’s Before Party, Items to Cook and Items to Bake

And yes, they are all color coded…

Now for my party inspiration board:

and of course the invite

Can’t wait to partaaaayyy!

    Who doesn't love a good color-coded list? I couldn't live without my fine point colored sharpies for that purpose!

    lOOK AT YOU!!! all organized and junk.. I'm lucky if I can scribble a few words on a piece of paper before running out to the store 10 minutes before. I'm sure the party will be fabulous!

    Love the salad jars (and of course the mason jars!). And what's with blocking off the "where?" Your lovely readers can't party with you? 😉
