I wasn't kidding yesterday when I mentioned I was preparing a post that would ward off any potential rain clouds...*wink*
This color scheme is bright, cheerful and lends itself to a feeling of happiness...
Which is absolutely what we all feel when we get those rare opportunities to sneak off and have some time with friends.
Mindy & Crystal did an absolutely beautiful job putting this together.

My favorite party details:
• mason jars tied with fabric for beverages  
• the use of lemons and oranges from Mindy's backyard
• the simple silverware caddy created by tying together a cluster of four mason jars
• the coordinating table runner, placecards and menus
• flowers from the front yard

And if it wasn't enough to be inspired by Mindy and Crystal's creativity...
They've been generous enough to share some FREE printables, recipes and a diy with us too!! (see links below)

How did you dinner turn out? I hope delicious. Did you have good crusty bread on hand to soak up all the extra sauce?
Thanks you
