We made cheese stuffed burgers one feta and the other spicy, homemade hamburger buns, hand squeezed organic lemonade with your option of adding freshly blended strawberries, homemade mayo, homemade fry-sauce, homemade spicy pickles, corn, chunky black bean salsa, and fruit salad with homemade whipped cream. All the food was a blast to make and it tasted delicious. I figured the effort to home-make everything was worth it with the celebration being centered around the pioneers who were not afforded all our modern food preparation short cuts we have today.
Personalized bottles for everyone complete with paper straws and the party logo. I actually had to add those paper circles to the straws because the straws were to short for the bottles, but I loved what it added to them.
I have bun stacking skills, who would have known.
Dollar store jars. I would have bought more, but I am ban from buying more jars via the husband.
Burger flags. We had to have some way to tell which burgers were which.
I used this old record stand that I already had to hold the plates and napkin rolls.I even had some international guests. Two foreign exchange students from China that are staying with my sister-in-law. I am pleased to announce that they both eat seconds, and I was proud to give them such an american experience. Does this mean I can officially say that people from all over the world come to my parties?
The best party of all...just seeing everyone sitting around enjoying good company in my back-yard.
Yes I actually weaved red white and blue 30 foot fabric banners in-between my picket fence slats.
Hope you enjoy the party...I know I did.
