Impromptu Viewing Party

I woke up this morning and decided to try and get my group of friends from middle school and high school together (We all went to the same private school although I moved away for our last two years). I was thinking that Starbucks would be a good start but as the number of RSVP's grew, that didn't seem like a viable option anymore. So, like any good southern girl, I offered my house and someone suggested a documentary that he'd been wanting us all to see. So I started brewing a batch of sweet tea and went to the store.

So here is my game plan (I'm blogging while I'm waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven).

Sweet Tea, a few different 2-liters of Soda
Sugar cookies
various sprinkles in their own glass dishes
cut up berries
oreos (at a friend's request)
cute turquoise and white patterned table cloth
yellow plates, napkins, and pitcher for tea
Clear plastic cups
bright color straws

Everything is on the table in various size and shape clear glass with a few white dishes.

I brought some extra chairs in the living room, cleaned up the house, and sent my parents out on a date. lol. Tonight should be a fun walk down memory lane and I will get a picture up of my completed party table :).  What are your favorite party tips when last minute festivities come up?


  1. I love your new header and the signature. It sounds like a beautiful get together.

  2. Thanks! I got a great font you would love called "Jane Austen" on dafont.com.
