The remains of a Lawn Party....

This weekend was filled with party prep and party time. I did squeeze in the sale of my first property as well. Overall, I would say a very successful weekend.

The party was a blast and although the weather called for a 60% chance of rain, we didn't see one drop. I think when Joshua and I did the count we had about 40 people participate which was a very manageable number. I was very glad all the invitations we sent weren't accepted because I don't know what we would have done with everyone.

This was the most mentioned item on the serving tables.

Lawn Party- Shuttlecock Toothpick Holder

I was talking to my mom and she suggested we put the toothpicks in something. I don't have a toothpick holder, or a small plate, or anything like that so what am I going to do at 11pm the night before? My plan was to decorate the tables with shuttlecocks and they have holes so this is what I came up with. Nothing really profound and it was a pain to execute, but now everyone thinks I'm brilliant so I guess it was worth it.

The only downside of the party was I didn't get a chance to game it up due to all the mingling, so last night Joshua and I went out in the backyard and played badminton. People...badminton is awesome. You should come over and try it. Plus, because our court is on a slope you get some unexpected exercise trying to get from one side to the other.

Hope you all had a great weekend as well.

Told you the toothpick holders would be the hit of the party! They looked really great for a casual game party.
