Today was the official first day of Autumn.
What better way to celebrate than by throwing a party?
The woman in my family use to get together quite often for what we called, “A woman’s party”. We all brought a gift to exchange and a potluck food item.
The older we get some of our traditions have fell by the wayside.
Distance and age keep us from seeing each other as much as we’d like.
I decided to throw one last Hurrah before the snow flies. Yes, here in Utah it won’t be long.
I wanted to keep it simple and let the garden do the decorating for me.
You can’t go wrong with Zinnias and blue vintage jars and bottles.
Appetizers were set up inside then taken outdoors when everyone arrived.
An old wheelbarrow works great as a drink station. Can’t believe I missed getting a pic of the wonderful food table.
We had a great turn out.
None of us like having our picture taken, but it was a must!
The girls, as mom always called us: Me, Jeanne, Julie, Dolores, and Joanne.
Me and my girls
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. The weather was perfect and boy did we have great food and good laughs.
My sister, Jeanne brought a lot of family photo albums that we enjoyed.
I thank God for being part of such a fun family!
Hope you had a wonderful first day of Autumn!
I will be partying with:
