Housewarming Party Pics Long Overdue

While I am waiting for everyone to weigh in on my 100th post giveaway post, I figured I needed to share some pics from our housewarming party… from July. I know, I know, these are waaaay overdue. But summer just flew by and I’ve been very busy. I promise my regularly scheduled blogging will resume soon. So, without further ado, I welcome you into my home for our housewarming party. Boy, this sounds really bad since I only have pics of the party food, not the house, but it’ll have to do for now.

I am excited to share an idea that I found in a recent issue of Real Simple magazine, a subscription I received as a birthday present from my parents. Anywho, it’s amazing what you can get for free. Inspired by what I saw in Real Simple, I went to my local Lowe’s and raided the paint samples to use for labeling dishes at the party. I grabbed colors that coordinated with our kitchen. This is a great idea! I think they would really work well as place settings for a dinner party or around the holidays, which are coming up so fast come to think of it!

Coming soon... my mom's potato salad recipe and the party's desserts.


  1. What a great menu and I love how you presented everything!

  2. I saw this in Real Simple as well and thought it was just such a great idea!

    I love the Real Simple magazine...and the BH&G one too. :)
