One of the reasons I’ve been absent from ye ole blog lately is that I’ve been spending the better part of the past month getting ready for my best gal Katie’s wedding shower that we hosted at our house this past Saturday. Katie’s found her perfect partner and a true gentleman in Evan, and planning this shower with my five other hostesses with the mostesses over the past month has been so much fun.
Since it was a couple’s shower, we kept things fun for both genders by having a cookout complete with hamburgers, hot dogs, all the sides, and an assortment of cobblers for dessert. We eschewed traditional shower games and opted for a cornhole tournament that lasted throughout the night. With music in one room, and football in another, there was plenty of entertainment for everyone, and the night was a huge success. And if you’re looking for a fun party drink, I made this Southern Sweet Tea Spritzer. It was a major hit. I’d definitely recommend it for your next party or tailgate.
(Katie and Evan. Just like the banner says. And there’s the sweet tea spritzer in the beverage dispenser behind them.)
(My best gals and I in a fabulously blurry picture. My sweet friend Missy is missing because she was outside playing cornhole. Sorry Missy!)
(Cornhole in action.)
(The only detail shot I managed to take. I swear, not blogging for a while really messes with your remember-to-take-pictures-of-the-cute-stuff skillz. Anywho, tying their names on to the napkins with twine was really easy to do and a nice touch for the casual dinner.)
