3rd annual summer picnic

sarah and i hosted our 3rd annual summer picnic a few weekends back.
a time to get together with friends, enjoy good food and conversation, relax into the summer night and take it all in before summer is over! and boy has summer just flown by this year! we did it potluck style so we had a great variety of food and dessert!
everyone had a great time!:)

here's a look around...

 i forgot to take a pic of all the desserts..oops! pies, cheesecake cupcakes, cookies, etc!

 buffet table
 i was so excited when i found these watermelon plates and napkins!
 sarah made the cute bowl stand.
and i made a variety of different vases out of mason jars and cans to accent the party.

here's what this table looked like later that afternoon.
just a little food.;) now that's what i call a bbq haha!
i made this little garland out of fabric, burlap and ribbon.

 and i knew i had to do something with red burlap!;)

back to school party

my friend, kati, threw the cutest back to school party for her daughter and friends. i had to snap a few pics with my phone to share! she said many of the ideas came from pinterest, so you can find her here.
i just loved all the details and thoughtfulness she put into this. thanks again, kati, for a great time!

 pencil pretzel sticks!

 she made little sack lunches for all the girls...

 water fun too!

 lunch time!
 after lunch they made a cute little gift to give to their teacher on the first day.
inside they drew a picture and wrote their names. too cute!
 then they got to take home their goody bag of supplies. so cute!
