We spent Monday surrounded by over 50 friends and family in our little house. I don’t think this years July Fourth Party is one we will forget. Welcome to our home and party…
If you didn’t know this already, I LOVE to throw parties. I adore planning the decor and mapping out what we will all eat isn’t so bad either. The only thing I really don’t like, I don’t think anyone really does, is the cleanup. Thankfully family and friends helped so that always makes it so much better.
This is our “granny porch” as I call it. This little spot was perfect for the party BUT, I hope, that by Thanksgiving it will be all closed in as a four season room so that our dinning room will be larger and more accommodating for large dinner parties. Yes, I truly do LOVE to host.
Aaron and I went to the Latrobe Fourth of July Parade for a little and when we came back a certain cute Golden Retrieve had eaten 9 hamburger buns. Gasp!! Needless to say we were short a few. Silly pup!
So here it is… the secret to staying skinny on a holiday. Are you ready?? Have to many people over and don’t sit for to long or near food. Yep, that’s my new secret. I didn’t sit for long and when I did I made sure I didn’t have a plate of food in hand. When I did eat, I took a small plate and stood and talked while I ate then went back to keeping things stocked and guest happy. Genius, right?!?!?!?
We had so much food it hardly fit on the table! There was even more that came after this photo was taken! I don’t think a single staple picnic food item was missed.
