First of all, the weather was absolutely perfect. The humidity that we had been having vanished, and it was breezy, sunny, and wonderful.
I took some full table shots, so you might not be able to see everything so I will list it here.
- Hamburgers/Hot dogs
- Poppy seed coleslaw
- Cucumber and onions in Greek yogurt
- Baked beans
- Mac n cheese
- Dirty rice (if loving this is wrong, I don't want to be right!)
- Pickle/relish tray
- Hot dog chili (homemade!)
- Fruit salad
For drinks, we had lemonade, mint tea, iced tea, and different varieties of pop. We also set out bottles of water!
This year, my mom and I decided it would be fun to wrap our silverware. So one evening, (basically one episode of 7th Heaven!) I rolled the silverware in a napkin and tied it with a festive read ribbon. The basket, we bought at the Amish auction for a whopping $4. The silverware went in there, as well as extra napkins, and the dessert silverware. The flag tablecloth was something that my mom had from years ago. I found the patriotic bucket in our shed, and we used that to put our drinks in!
It was a great day spent with family and friends!
I'd love to see what was on your menu! Leave me a comment and let me know! Thanks, Andrea for the link up!
