Spring Garden Party 2009

We had a spring garden party on last weekend. Michael made the invitations using the iris photo from Gardens in Desert. The invitation said We're having a Pot Luck / Garden Party on May 2nd, Saturday at 4:00 p.m., Please feel free to bring any dish to pass and something to drink.

In keeping with the spring garden theme, I found this green tufted fabric perfect for the table cloth, with the tufts resembling little clumps of grass, the herb garden napkins were from a 2nd hand store that when opened became mini table cloths for the drinks, and the salads. We had a small crowd of 14 people in all, with barbequed chicken, cheese burgers, homemade patio salad, carrot cake, ham and cheese pinwheels, guacamole, chips, cupcakes and lemon bar squares. When the sun went down we cranked up the karaoke for a halarious singing marathon which lasted until we could no longer sing or stand.

October Storm iris purchased from the Las Vegas Iris Society opened just in time for the party.

Irene Lantana was flowering over by the peach tree.

The cannas filled the sunning bed with green.

And in addition to everything else that was in bloom, the iceplant from a cutting last fall opened it's first flower.

We had a great time and will have another party later in the year.
