I bought some cool backyard lighting options from Home Goods (my favorite goods for your home shopping destination) I found some tea light holders made to slide into old empty wine bottles (scattered around yard) and a few battery based decorations. Of course I had to have some clever citronella burners as I live behind a baseball field. I ran some white lights around some trees, put out some flowers and boom, little ambiance.
I wanted to have a couple signature drinks and some nosh out as well. I did a Sushi tray from Wegmans of spicy tuna/avocado and california roll.

|I made a pasta salad and I have to pause to recognize the cheese. If you like HOT and I mean HOT, this is for you. I used it sparingly so people wouldn't be on fire.|
|3 different champagnes with frozen grapes|
|You add the paint colors you like to the water, create design, lay scarf...|
|Laying the scarf onto the water, picks up color and design immediately!|
I wish I had this at home because there is so much pressure with the first one and now I feel better prepared to design. Jenn- I am waiting for you to have yours now! I also need to do one with a more fall colored tone. I tried to get the most out of my summer based colors on my last beach trip as a wrap, but really, that thing doesn't cover much.
