The other week I hosted a quaint party of 5 baby shower for a girlfriend in my small group. I finally was able to pull out the bunting flag tablecloth I made a while ago.
I knew a few of the gals who were coming are crazy about our grapefruit so I made a grapefruit juicing bar. The table is already butcher block so they can cut right on it.
Did you notice I finally used my gold flatware?
I’m just going to say it – I didn’t make any of the food other than put tater tots and sweet potato fries in the oven. I think homemade while is very delicious and sweet, can be overrated for those who don’t have the food gift or the time. So, off to Safeway I went. I care more about the presentation anyway – could you tell? Plus if I want my guests to have an enjoyable edible meal, I best leave the cooking to the experts. Love the Safeway deli!

Diana Elizabeth debated on using glass outdoors but she figured being outdoors, it’s so nice to have lightweight dishware, so it was all the outdoor entertaining plastic!
