Garden Party

This year for our end of the year picnic we held a garden party! Let me back up for second, I belong to my neighborhoods garden club. Here we meet once a month and throughout the year we do fun events like wine tasting, go to super suppers and make our dinner, and of course hold our annual geranium sale in the spring. Along with all of our regular meetings and events we do an end of the year picnic. This year we decided to do a garden party. We drew names from a hat and split the group up into 3's and formed teams. Each team was supposed to put together a theme, food, drink and decorations for there table. Above is the picture of my teams table. Our theme was a Summer Citrus Celebration. So we used lemons, limes and orange in our theme. Our food consisted of chicken francaise, zesty orange cupcakes, and southern limeade. All of our food was delicious! The cupcakes I made and they turned out so YUMMY!! I will post in another post the cupcake recipe and some pictures.

Below are some pictures of the other tables and what he table theme was?
