Garden Party!

I am the secretary of the womens organization at my church and we threw our yearly garden party this week which was quite a hit. We held it this year in my friend Candace's beautiful backyard.

We had lots to eat, which included 2 different kinds of quiches, chicken sandwiches, a strawberry salad, fruit, two different kinds of muffins, and lots of homemade jam... I donated one of my strawberry jams from my last post.

Of course we had to use some cute Martha Stewart table decoration ideas. The hearts are actually made of napkins. Smart Martha!

 I made a bunch of flag banners to decorate the yard with. I think they turned out pretty cute!

 My friend Cathy is a gourmet baker and made 5 different desserts! I had about 4 cupcakes by the end... good thing Cathy's also my walking buddy.

All and all this was a lot of work but a great party!

So lovely! The banner flags look great. Did you also make the invitation? It's kind of to die for.
