Recently my family and I were invited to a 40th Birthday Burlap and Linen-Themed Party. It was a summer outdoor party outfitted with perfect weather.
It’s DIY Time again, where I post something you can do yourself rather than buy, which is a money saver, and can be just plain fun! Some of these posts are crafts, sewing projects, re-purposed ideas, homemade cleaners, homemade health aids, tutorials, and the like.
I knew my friend, Ginger (who gave me permission to post this), the hostess, had mad creative skills. She’s a wonder in the kitchen and with all things creative. I have attended her amazing antique sales before, but this party gave her the opportunity to illustrate her eye for detail and demonstrate her artistry. With the help of her sister-in-law, Jessica, the two ladies put together amazing displays.
Ginger featured a dessert bar with all kinds of fun treats.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
And to cool off…vanilla ice cream.
Can you guess how many bottle caps are in the bucket?
Ginger used a ballpoint pen to make all of their signs (except on the chalkboard, of course). She used a special colored masking tape she ordered online to make the food flags.
Did she not think of everything? It was great for all, young and old alike, with food, fun, and fellowship! Thank you for letting us share, Ginger (and for permission to use pictures #1, #8 and #16)!
What fun party ideas do you have?
