With the 4th coming feeling a little like we’re off the hook. Had the big bash last weekend, and yes, oversold.
It’s a great feeling when everything seems to come together and the stars are aligned. Dear friend and I make a great team, we got progressive, wine beer booze at her place and BBQ here, across the street.
All hands were on deck and it was homegrown. Husband did the wine, French and CA, she did the first bar and organized the grill, BW’s, chicken, ribs, mac & cheese, baked beans, caesar salad, roll and butter. Her man worked overtime and took care of the zillion pounds of ice, what’s a party without the ice?
We had Negroni cocktails, so fun, and even each rang the old-fashioned dinner bell to signal end of the cocktail hour(s).
I baked 15 dozen chocolate chippers, she called up the bakery and had 15 dozen country cut-outs made up beautifully.
Her tip was the band, every day dress here made the call and was honestly a little nervous until they showed in the flesh.
Total mixed guest list, thirteen to eighty-plus, love that kind of thing, bonfire near the end.
Late stayers danced down to Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan, and company.
BBQ was oversold, yippee, so much better than being overdone or overdrawn, haha. Now we’re overstocked, yay, with opened bottles of wine, glasses, candles, and ferns. No problem, have a party early and you’re all set up for the summer.
Happy Holiday Week everyone.
Every day dress, oversold. 🙂
