It’s no secret that I love, no, LOVE theme parties. I’ve been wanting to have a 90s theme party for quite some time so when the opportunity arose I jumped on it.
This past weekend we went to the Roaring Twenties Lawn Party at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate. The party was organized by Boston Swing Central. We went with friends and brought along our own picnic. If you haven’t been to the Crane Estate yet, GO! Castle Hill on the 2,100 acre Crane Estate is located on Boston’s North Shore in Ipswich, MA.
As summer is winding down to an end (and since we have deck renovations on our brains) it’s time to start thinking about squeezing in as many summer BBQs as possible before it’s time to make apple pie and eat Halloween candy! We love to host parties, and when you can add in a little summertime weather and food on the grill – well, that’s just perfection.
If there is any “rule” in my book to hosting a dinner party, it’s don’t make it too complicated!
What’s the point of preparing and hosting a get-together if you’re going to miss it all?
I mentioned this bunting in my post about the baby shower I hosted at my house a few weeks ago.
If you can sew in a semi-straight line, you can make this bunting.
A few weekends ago my lovely friend Eva, who blogs at La Vie Urbane, and I threw our friend Johanna a baby shower.
Our friend, the mom-to-be, just finished getting her Nutrition degree and is a vegetarian/mostly vegan, and cooks the most delicious and unique dishes! The vegetable theme started as a joke… and it stuck!
