Thankfully, I have had some great friends to coach me along. They have talked me through the menu, the drinks, and the overall logistics. (Thank you Kara, Janis, and Felice!)
We are having about 60 people and my number one worry was the weather. I really didn't want to spend $300 on a tent rental if I didn't need it. So - I hoped and prayed that we would have good weather. Right now, the forecast is looking beautiful! I am so happy about that. Please let it stay that way!
My other worry was the food. Way back when, Brian kept telling me that all we needed was nuts and chips, and beer. Ummmmm. That was a negative. I had to explain to him that there was no way

what is in each crock pot.
Another minor issue was lighting. The party starts at 7. It will get dark around 8:30. So - I need some nice lighting. Right? Here is my solution! Candles in canning jars with sand on the bottom. How cute! They will be placed on various tables throughout the yard. We also plan to string some white Christmas tree lights around the swing set to create more light.

I think it's slowly coming together. But, let me tell you - that I can't wait for it to get here so I can stop worrying.
Let the party week begin!
