Does the phrase “party planning” get you anxious?
So many times we over -analyze planning gatherings. It truly can cause us to loose the joy of the purpose of the main event.
Our minds can get into a frenzy, can’t they?!
We feel it takes tons of people, time, and it has to be “just so”.
I wanted to show you a little gathering (vow renewal) I catered that took literally took 2 days to plan…yes, two days. The only communication was: “I’ll take care of the food-check” , a family member offered “I’ll provide the place-check”, and another family member said “I’ll decorate- check”…
Here’s how it turned out 🙂
I prepped the food the night before…dicing, cutting, making the dips but not baking, etc. Here’s my van loaded up.
I used throw-away containers for quick clean up. I get mine inexpensively at GFS…. love that the trays come with lids.
Love that fake silverware 🙂
The decorations were beautiful…she used table clothes, vases and flowers that she had on hand. They truly looked naturally stunning.
I made a fruit tray with fruit dip.
Pigs in a planket for the kiddos (but adults love em too).
Hot ham and cheese sliders with poppyseed dressing.
*If you want to save time for a casual outdoor party, you can have the main sandwiches catered. Subway , makes a delicious subway club that is a hit with adults and children alike! Fill in your spread with homemade appetizers and you’re done!
Buffalo Chicken Dip ( I will be sharing this recipe shortly).
A veggie tray with spinach dip…
My dear friend Melissa and I…she and her hubby were re-newing their vows that evening.What an honor it was to serve them on this special occasion.
It may look fancy…but it’s just “Comfy”!
