with the summer nearing the end (today is our first day of school!), we decided to host a bbq with a few other families from our neighborhood. we are blessed with awesome neighbors! having something on the calendar is always good motivation for me to clean the house, and this time the backyard, too! silas was my little workhorse this day. he asked me to pay him $15 an hour. we negotiated down to $3.
i went simple and summery with my decor: a rainbow of bandanas for napkins, white plates, hydrangeas in mason jars, all on top of layered white table cloths.
we pulled a few pillows from our porch couch to soften up the fireplace since we were going to have a fire once the evening cooled down.
i set up a little drink station on our potting bench to make serving yourself easy.
and i’m still kicking myself for not taking any pictures during the gathering! we had a great night, good food, and lots of fun!
