Socialite Saturday

Entertaining gives me something to do. Seriously, I need a purpose and throwing a party is a great way to help me stay organized. Tonight is my nieces engagement party. She is getting married on the beach behind my husband's family home (he grew up there and his brother lives there now). So I thought it would be fun to serve hamburgers, hot dogs and boardwalk inspired desserts for the party. Except the burgers and fries will be a tad more gourmet.

Aren't the invites adorable? I love that their names are on the beach chairs. Planning parties can be SO fun!

  1. I love hosting a party. Just wish people would pay me for my services. Living in a small rural community, I have learned people want something that looks like Martha Stewart catered it, but they don't want to pay the price.

  6. Those invites are just adorable! I'm always astonished by the sorts of thoughtful, lovely (and clever!) things people manage to come up with these days. Between well-designed invitations and envelope liners, I still have some hope that in our society, civility is not on its dying breath.

    I hope you all have such a wonderful time celebrating!
