I love planning and hosting parties, especially for people I love. Last Saturday, Wynn and I threw a party for our dear friends, Trent and Katrina, who are about to have their first child. They’re outdoorsy, low maintenance folks, so I went with a woodlands theme for the party. It turned out great, Katrina was thrilled, and everyone had a great time.
To prepare for the party, Wynn smoked a pork roast all day and Trent snow plowed an area for the bonfire (only in Alaska moment for this southern girl).
We planned a few activities to entertain the guests (with some inspiration and guidance from a few of my girlfriends).
As a result of the party and the painting marathon, Katrina has about 20 (mostly tasteful) cute onesies in her baby’s wardrobe.
It’s amazing how many people will cheese it up when there is a “photo booth” and a few silly props. Everyone loved it!
We finished the night with a bonfire (by that picturesque barn).
To make the bonfire just as festive as the inside of the house, we had s’mores, popcorn, hot cocoa, and blankets for folks to wrap up in.
Best of luck, Katrina and Trent. We’re so happy for you guys and hope everyone is healthy as can be!
