Before we leave Connecticut for Pennsylvania, Anthony and I are planning a party for all of our friends here. In the past 13 years in Fairfield, I have met some of the most wonderful people in the world we wanted to make them burgers and cupcakes to thank them for being awesome.
I picked this pretty email invitation from Paperless Post. It was easy to add the info and customize, and the email has an awesome animation of the invite coming out of the envelope, which even includes a liner!
We’re having the party in the back yard of Anthony’s parent’s house (since we already moved out of our house), so I am looking for some cool but cheap ideas for lighting.
These paper bag party lights from Martha Stewart are perfect.
We’ll probably go with burgers and hot dogs on the grill, plus some salads and really good desserts. I am IN LOVE with this idea for a salad bar from Hostess with the Mostess. It’s perfect for picky eaters (like me) who usually end up picking around certain vegetables in a pre-made salad.
Once it gets dark, we’ll make s’mores. NotMartha made fantastic-looking ones with peanut butter cups. Best idea ever.
