Ladies Night Gathering

Last evening I hosted what I hope to be the first of many
Ladies Night Gatherings....  a few of my favorite neighbor friends came to visit

We think it may become a monthly event, hosted at different homes each time

As you know, I love to decorate...the green, white and yellow theme was
chosen from the pretty hydrangeas that are blooming now.

Started digging and I came up with more green wares than I thought I had
Green & White Enamelware made for great ice and drink containers on the beverage table.
Lime Mojitos and Lemonade were served

The table I set for friends
a simple potted plant wrapped in burlap for favors to take home

Maygan made the Welcome Sign
I spray painted placemats for on the food buffet..burlap with a fern frond for a stencil

a buffet of munchies...Fiesta, Crab & Vegetable Herb Dips with crackers & chips
my friend Traci brought Chicken Wing Dip...a delicious Apple Dessert by Melanie and Pat brought yummy
Mint Ice Cream Treats from Skinny Cow!

..x...x...x...x...x...x...x..
 We have had a frenzy of wildlife lately..  I took this picture on July 4th..
note the big Gray Fox int the background along the tree line.  He/she was hoping for a quick lunch of baby turkey who the momma hen had safely retreated to the tree above.  The two large birds in the photo were trying to divert the fox's attention

Blessings Friends,
Traci
