It’s Party Central Around Here


We have obviously not mastered the art of blogging on a regular basis but I think we have a pretty good excuse as to why! 

Let’s see, this Saturday is Scott’s birthday party.  Today he informed me that since it has a Mexican theme not only do we need ice cold Coronas, but also a piƱata.  Uh, ok. I will add it to my list.  

Next week my little sister graduates, again.  Her party got boxed up and shipped off over a week ago but there are still a few finishing touches to get in the mail this week.  We will have to have her do a guest post for us since we are not able to attend the party. Boo. Hoo.

After that, it is just graduation after graduation!  Lizzy’s, Tasha’s and Shelby’s to get ready for not to mention the ones we just get to attend!  And  add some visiting parents to the mix and that is our month of May! 

Stay tuned, party details to follow.   But for now, off to bed! SweetDreamsAre_Thumb_1

Prom Dinner 2010

Whenever you are asked by your 18 year old daughter, if you would like to make a nice prom dinner for 3 girls and their dates – you say YES!                             
 How exciting that these 6 seniors would prefer to sit at my table and eat food I have prepared vs. going out to a fancy restaurant on Prom Night. And so the planning began…first, of course, I called Kellee. We discussed themes, menus and started making our lists. With graduation just around the corner, budget was something I needed to consider.

And so, I took a few things that I had….

Added a few things that I bought…

And ended up with a dinner table set for Prom Night 2010!

The night began with 3 lovely girls, ready for fun…

and their 3 very handsome dates…

They enjoyed VIRGIN martinis with frozen grapes…

Appetizer Trio featuring Shrimp Cocktail, Spinach-Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips & Sushi

Chicken Cordon Bleu and Green Beans wrapped in Bacon

and  Walnut Maple White Chocolate Blondies with a White Chocolate Truffle

Thank you for allowing me to host this special night for you!

And much thanks to my kitchen help – Kellee and Pam! I will be there for you when you need to host prom dinner in your homes!
