Last Sunday I hosted the 2nd annual ladies luncheon for some of my girlfriends. I hosted the first ladies luncheon last year because I had a new baby and hadn't had the chance to spend much time with my friends all summer. This year I kept it simple and just sent out evites from http://www.evite.com/.
Once the invites were sent, I set up a menu:
Roasted Chicken Purses
Penne in Almond Sauce
Butterfinger Ice Cream Dessert (a recipe from my great grandma)
After the menu was set, I worked on coming up with a special favor for the ladies to take home. Since I know all of my friends enjoying cooking...and food as much as I do, I decided that homemade recipe cards would be the perfect favor. So I got to work on the computer and created these:
The evite that I sent out had lemons and limes on it, so I stuck with that color palette for the party.
The party was a success! Thanks so much for joining me girls! It was so nice to see all of you. I can't wait until next year! Maybe we'll have to have a dinner party this winter ; )
