I found out about a week ago that the Capt.’s sister was going to be in town and he had invited her over for a cookout, along with his brother and sister-in-law.
Ordinarily, this wouldn’t have been a big deal, but, we are in the middle of restoring an old boat and the garage is loaded with parts that are spilling over to my craft room. Also, I am in the process of changing out colors in my living room and I have sewing projects spread out everywhere.
I was so busy trying to get everything picked up and plan the menu that I had very little time to think about any kind of decorations.
When I realized that St. Patricks Day is coming up, and The Capt.’s mother’s maiden name was Kelly, it was a no brainer! I quickly searched Pinterest for a few ideas, I didn’t want to go over board, but I did want it to be a little festive.
I found this cute printout here http://www.inspirationalfamousquotes.com/2013/09/i-am-not-lucky-i-am-blessed.ht
so I made my own version of it and it turned out great.
I picked up a green vinyl table cloth at the Family Dollar store along with some fake flowers. Then I went to Walmart and bought a green plastic flower pot.
I just made my special hamburgers, great hot dogs with the casings that crunch when you bite into them, an apple salad and a key lime pie for dessert.
No one even noticed my subtle Irish theme,
the food must have been that good!
