As I have mentioned before, Evan and I love to host friends and family in our home. A couple of weekends ago was no different. Evan and I hosted a 30th Birthday Party for our good friend, Jenn. We planned it around the Tennessee/Georgia football game. It was a beautiful afternoon for a small get together.
It’s still so hot here in the south, so I could not make myself put on my jeans. My favorite gingham skort from American Threads saved the day. Also, these platforms have been my go to shoe ALL summer, as I am sure you can tell. I wear them constantly!
Our back patio is the perfect spot to watch football with friends. We have enjoyed this space so much. I have managed to keep my big Kimberly fern alive all summer long and lots of potted flowers as well. (patting myself on the back) They really make the space more “home-y”, along with the mad mats!

We had quite the spread for the party on my island. Jenn’s favorite is the ever famous sausage and cheese plate, so that was a must have. I cannot forget the wickles pickles to go with it. If you haven’t tried those you are seriously missing out! I have recently started making spinach artichoke dip for all occasions and it has been a hit each time!

A good friend of mine from High School, Caitlin Pemberton, made the cake. She did a fabulous job and it tasted so good. Send me a message for her contact information.
Jenn is my very best friend and I would do anything to make her birthday a happy one! Fun was had by all even though our poor football team let us down once again. Our husbands turn 30 in May and we are looking forward to throwing them a fun joint birthday party.
