we had such a beautiful day to celebrate emily & two of her dearest friends at our home a couple weekends ago! so grateful for a glorious sunshiny day! and even more grateful to all the precious friends that came to join us!!
i’m not a natural at party planning & playing hostess but i felt so happy that everything fell into place. the girls had asked for sunflowers so off i went to trader joes for a few dozen. along with some eucalyptus as well. i threw in just a few succulents ( i love them. emi does not) along the food table. our friends did the food & it was delicious!! home made chicken salad sliders, potato salad, pasta salad, fruit with dip, white cheddar popcorn and a few bowls of candy for fun. each of the girls had special cakes made for them as a gift. emi’s UGA cake was quite possibly my favorite detail!
i wanted something fun to display their photos so i chose a birch branch & basically just used clear filament to hang them. you’ll see images at the end of the post with a little more detail.
