Carsyn's UK Tailgate Party- Part I
(Finally...I got all the pictures together from Carsyn's party. Prepare for picture overload-sorry!)
I think I knew when Carsyn was born amidst football season we'd for sure be having some tailgate/UK themed parties.
I contacted Ashley of AB Designs to design Carsyn's custom invitation and she did not disappoint. I love her work so much and she's such a sweetie to work with.
My SIL came up with the idea to add painted pumpkins and pots to the decor and we gathered at my MIL & FIL's on weekends and painted.
We displayed Carsyn's monthly pig pictures on the fireplace and decorated the mantle with pots, pumpkins, and framed photos.
My MIL and FIL were so gracious to host Carsyn's party at their home-its a fantastic place to entertain. They had plenty of room for bouncy houses, guests and food.
Since the majority of the guests were kids we had face painting and tattoos in addition to the obstacle course and velcro wall. My MIL also has a neat popcorn machine we set up and most of the kids ended up going home with a small bucket- I'm sure their parents loved that!
The food tables were divided up into main courses, appetizers, drinks, and desserts.
The dessert table:
The main food table included hot dogs, hamburgers, wings, chicken tenders, mac and cheese, and pasta salad:
