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!
