even though we got quite the downpour of rain right before the party started yesterday (which we needed and actually help cut the humidity) the party was such a success. my mom did a great job organzining and planning and cooking. i guess i know where i get some of my skills from.

my peach sangria was a hit … and super delicious if i must say so myself. i actually thought i made WAY too much but it was gone before i knew it!

so here’s my recipe… i used 6 bottles of white wine (pinot grigio and moscato), 2 -3 cups peach schnapps, 3 cups orange juice, 1 1/2 cups simple syrup, 1 large bottle of pellegrino (or any sparkling water),  6 peaches chopped, 4 granny smith apples chopped, a bunch of green grapes halved, 4 lemons sliced, 6 peached cubed, 3 oranges sliced … and boy was it yummy. and the smell was crazy good too.

see the invitations i made. the inspiration for the party was a picnic … and red and white ghinham of course.

there were lots of flowers for decoration…

vintage baskets thrifted from goodwill …

there was super yummy spinach dip …

there was an older brother that tried to ruin my vegetable tray picture …

ahh, that’s better…

there was homemade salsa (the final jar from last year – saved for the perfect occasion) …

there were cookies …

lots of cookies …

and of course … cake … the most Delicious cake made by my aunt …
 

i love a good party. don’t you?

    The same thing happened out my way, the rain came and all of a sudden it wasn’t totally miserable out! But on a more serious note, how much do I want to dunk my head in that sangria? and the spin dip too. Both are my weaknesses.

    and the theme??? I adore it! Such cute invites!
