This weekend, I hosted a birthday party for my very dear friend, Ginny. We got together on Saturday evening to celebrate the last day of her twenties - Ginny's birthday was on Super Bowl Sunday. So, while everyone in line behind me at Target was buying snacks for their game day get-togethers, I was there stocking up for a kid-friendly fiesta.
There are plenty of pictures from the evening itself, but they have not yet gone through the editing phase. I made these sandwiches, these meatballs, and served fruit salad and cut up veggies with this dip. I had big dreams that the food would be all cooked before everyone arrived, but I managed my time poorly and wound up putting the sandwiches together in the kitchen while the guests hung out in the living room. We did have a collection of these:
I also wanted to tell you guys about a little project I did on Saturday to get ready for the party.
