Party Preparations

I think I’m ready for the retirement party that I’m hosting this afternoon.  There’s no time between me getting home from school and the guests arriving, so I hope that I truly am ready.

I’m probably the only person who will notice how pretty these are, but I sure do love the napkins and plates that I chose. 


Peonies for the tables….


Tablecloth ironed….


The card table is ready to go out on the deck for the food and the wine cooler is ready to be filled with ice and placed on the patio.  I’ll put soft drinks and beer in the fire pit on the patio.


I’ll be mixing pitchers of Beer Margaritas around 3:30 pm tomorrow.  Care to join a bunch of nutty middle school teachers for a party?  The more the merrier!


  1. You can’t go wrong with Caspari! I droll over the catalog! Have a great party and drink a margarita for me!

  2. Have fun! Looks like a grand time – and I’m sure your friends will notice how pretty everything is and the efforts you’ve made as hostess!

  3. I always notice pretty plates and napkins! I love the square ones. 🙂 I really need a beverage container…saw one at Big Lots and should have snatched it up. Hope your party is a blast!!!

  4. Sounds like you have it all under control! Have a great party! Do share pics afterwards!

  5. Love the plates and napkins. You’ve really got me wanting to try those beer margaritas. Have one for me! Y’all don’t party too hard!!
