Garden Dinner Party


Who thought it would be a good idea to have a dinner party the day before leaving for vacation and for the summer? I guess I did! It actually went really well and we were still able to clean, pack and head out on time the next day! This was mainly because I had a party planning partner, Nicole. Plus big help from Kayti and Lindsay!
 
We came up with a garden dinner party theme to help welcome in spring and summer, despite the weather we were having. I thought little pots with chalkboard paint would be perfect to assign seating. Nicole and I saw a chandelier from Yan's ballet shoot that we loved. We decided to do something similar. We bought a hula hoop from the dollar store and ripped strips of fabric to attach around the hoop. Lindsay brought the flowers and rest of the table accessories were things on hand. I had the straws from Rilo's party and Nicole made the chalkboard sign from the wood and paint she had. I didn't take a picture of the invites but they were similar to the menus.
 
For food we decided to do gourmet burgers, which were burgers with various cheeses and toppings, karpouzi salad (recipe to come tomorrow), sweet potato fries + sauce and sweet coconut bread with sherbet for dessert. And now for the photos...
