I wanted to share the wonderful time I had with some of my best friends, their Mom and a neighbor yesterday. Everyone said you have to take photos of the table, so we did….with no one sitting at it! LOL
This was such a nice day for me, my hubby had to work until almost midnight so sharing the day with some of my favorite people was just perfect!
I made some goodies for them to take….
I made these banners out of Valentine doilies and printed off some of my vintage children’s cards…..added a few button and baubles, and used a twine that was pink, white and red.
I had goodies bags for when they left, filled with all kinds of stuff!
And of course we had to have red heart straws for out drinks!
Here is a shot of the table…
I found vintage inspired paper plates and napkins at Hobby Lobby, and for some reason I needed to use red plastic utensils….and my Boopie Glass red goblets. The tablecloth came from Wal-Mart.
We had a menu of different sandwich fixings and side dishes that helped us think of our Mom’s or Grandmas…. we had deviled eggs, pasta salad, Lu-Lu Sauce with potato chips ( something I had never heard of and loved!), and crab salad.
I made a vintage frozen fruit salad that I put in these molds….
Here is what it came out like, and it was yummy!!!!!
It had cream cheese, sugar, cool whip, frozen strawberries, crushed pineapple and sliced bananas, it was a hit!
And of course red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for desert.
One of my guest was my dear friend Meri Wiley, of http://imagimeris.blogspot.com/.
she always comes with wonderful goodies anytime she comes by, and she had a belated birthday gift that I just adore!!!!!!
This sweet little cow ( I think) do cows have horns? LOL was made into an adorable pin cushion….
And of course all cows need to wear a bell, and mine has a sweet pink gingham ribbon and baubles! Only Meri could have seen this when she bought this sweet piece of vintage life.
And look at my handmade card!!!!!!
Perfection!!!!!! Thank you Meri for thinking of me!
Meri also brought sweet Valentines for all of us in her wonderful “Imagimeri “ style…..
Meri’s sister Linnie and I have been friend since our junior years in high school and she brought me a wonderful little box for Valentines day and a package of …..strawberry flavored peeps dipped in dark chocolate!
Lets just say that once we tried the peeps ( I am a Peep fanatic if you are new to my blog), we decided they need to quit being so inventive! LOL
All in all a great day with people I love and care for…..hope everyone had as good a day as I did….thanks for stopping by…..
