Memorial Day: The Party!!!

Our party was wonderful . . . . and the food was delicious . . . I'd say so, anyways:)
Everyone ready to start eating.

Our plates loaded with hot dogs, chips, jello cup (with a dallop of whip cream and a raspberry on top), and veggies.

Our Frosty Floats . . . delicious!

Our nummy dessert ~ I'll tell you how to make this and the frosty floats tomorrow.


Some of the extra's in case people needed more . . . set on top of a picnic basket . . .perfection!

You can find this printable here.

The apple tile you've seen before . . . I simply added "all american" to it with rub-ons and mod-podged over it . . . simple & cute:)

The table runner is from the bottom of an old white skirt . . . . simply the bottom layer torn off and two pieces cut the same length . . . I actually thought it turned out pretty cute!

There were two different sizes of trifles . . .

This decoration was made from some gauzy navy fabric and some candy hearts sprinkled around it, and the doily tag I made set on top.

The hot dog basket printable is found here.

It was a lovely party . . . and it was pretty cute and frugal, too!

Have a wondrous day:)
