31 on 21

Last night my friend Angie and I hosted a Thirty-One party at my house.   You know how I love a theme party so this was a good excuse to have a summer themed party.  I told you how I made (with the help of others) a lemonade stand, so I wanted to show you the final product.  This was how the theme started.  I wanted to see if I could make this. 

It held the drinks (lemonade, of course).  This is while we were setting up.
 I found this little chalkboard at a yard sale for 5 cents.  Go figure.
 We drank our lemonade out of mason jars with ribbon. 
 Sabrina and Sara shopping and looking adorable! 
 Liz and her daughter checking out the products from Thirty-One.

The food was delicious.  Angie made a great salad and strawberry shortcake.  And I made the fruit salsa and the feta dip. Yum.   
 Some of our younger guests.  Gotta start them going to these kind of parties young. 
Busy shopping...
 Sara, Sabrina and Angie enjoying some snacks.

 We made our 31 consultant a little thank you.  I am in love with this.  It's strawberry hand soap and strawberry candies in a berry basket. 
 And we put this out for the guests.  I took this to my office today.  I think I'm going to keep this on my desk for the summer.
The basket with favors.  I love the little chalkboard marker. 
The favors were strawberry, lemon and fruit slices candy.  The tag says:  "there's nothing sweeter than summertime"
 After everyone had finished shopping, eating and relaxing, Jill got out some wedding projects (she's storing some stuff at my house) and started putting together the seating chart frame.  Jill's taping things to the back with the assistance of Gillian and Sabrina. 
And just for the record, I broke the glass in part of the frame so I'll be going to Lowe's to get some new glass cut tomorrow.  Ha. Whoops.

It was a fun night.  We even had a few husbands stop by.  I'd say it was a successful event, thanks to my co-host, Angie.  I hope all my ladies had a good time.  And thanks for giving me an excuse for the infamous lemonade stand. 

Happy Wednesday!

I love your theme! The lemonade stand is great and the mason jars were a nice touch. One of my favorite candies are those strawberry ones and I love what you did with them.

Isn't Thirty One great? I have a lunch tote from them and I am in love with it!
