Our first party + In-laws

CV's parent's were in town from the Outer Banks last week...
We thought it would be nice for the whole family to get together, so we did what anyone with a big backyard would do, and invited everyone over for a little party!
CV's mom's birthday was coming up, so it was a perfect reason to get together and celebrate.
We had about 30ish people attend...which called for renting some tables and chairs for the perfect little dining experience.  Add some flowers as centerpieces...and there you have it!

A game of bocce ball started...
 ...along with a lot of conversations.
...and grilling hamburgers/hotdogs/etc!
CV handled the grill...along with his sidekick, Bob.
(Ladies in Cincinnati...he's single!!) :)
Paisley even wore her new little outfit for the party.
And then I stopped taking pics...because I'm the HOST, not the photographer!
The rest of the week/weekend included painting rooms in the house, yard work, planting lots of gorgeous flowers, eating delicious meals, drinking A LOT of wine, and hanging out with the family.
It was great to have the in-laws in town for the week...
Now back to the normal schedule of life...

Looks so lovely! Renting tables is such a smart idea - not that expensive, easy to get enough seating, and kind of nice to have everything match :)

Your outdoor space is amazing. So fun to host a part that large.
