1 HUGE party!
1 HUGE party!
Hi everyone and welcome to the Summer
Block Blog Party sponsored by At The Picket Fence! The link to join the party is at the bottom of this post. I look forward to seeing your Summer entertaining ideas.
I had planned to have my party on the deck today but with the temperature at 94 degrees I thought we would all be more comfortable inside. I have the air conditioner turned down low, that's Jimmy Buffet playing in the background and the food is almost ready.
I found these cute lobster place mats a couple of years ago in Destin, Fl and I thought they would be great to use today.
I didn't have lobster themed napkins so I painted my own with a fabric pen. I also made the little place cards and added them to glass ball holders that remind me of fishing floats.
Would you like a glass of lemonade?
I'll be having a Virgin Mary if you would like to join me.
For those of you that like beer we have some chilling in the bucket.
Herman (the lobster) has been through a lot with us...including surviving two hurricanes! I couldn't leave him at the beach when we moved so now he resides in my pantry. Even though I don't have the heart to cook Herman (plus he would be a little rubbery) I have made something yummy for you.
Shrimp Salad - perfect dinner for those hot days of Summer.
The only thing better would be homemade lemon ice cream.
I'll be back later with recipes.
Now, Lets get this party started!
Here's how it works.
Link up your Summer Entertaining post(s) below and your links will appear on all twelve blogs that are hosting the party as their posts go public! That means your posts will appear simultaneously on all of our blogs once you have linked them up here and will be there throughout the party! You are welcome to share as many posts as you like related to Summer Entertaining below.
There are 13 Giveaways going on with the Blog Party. Winners will be selected from all those that link to the party. Please join the ladies above to participate in their parties and enter their giveaways.
My GIVEAWAY is for this fabulous French Script pillow donated by Gathered Comforts. I hope you will visit their Etsy shop to see all the wonderful pillows they have for sale.
