mayday party with friends

I have really wonderful friends.  Some of them are really cool too (others of us just try…).  Many of us have grown up together…like since elementary school.

so many years ago.

Two of my bestest friends had the brilliant idea (inspired by a BBC miniseries) to throw a MayDay party!  The motive: laughter, games, good food, beautiful dresses, and obviously, pictures!

We spent houuuuurrrrrs planning, baking, decorating, and hanging lanterns in preparation for this party…and it did not disappoint!


so without further ado I give you Mayday!

the details: (bunting, mocktails, florals, lanterns etc.) …oh and I should mention that this is ALL homemade. :)

Susannah designed beautiful paper invites (invites? They’re those paper things people sent out to get you to come to a party before facebook came along with its pesky invites.), Rachel made centerpieces of spring flowers in mason jars, and I made yards of pale bunting to string through the trees along with the numerous Japanese lanterns remaining from Susannah’s wedding. Little sandwiches, tiny vegetable skewers, and gorgeous cupcakes sat on white lace table clothes, and ice cubes with mint leaves frozen inside chilled lemonade and sweet tea.  The boys in bowties played croquet or badminton, while girls with flower crowns ran around with our miniature hand-held  May Day poles. In a word, it was perfect.  Susannah, whom I have mentioned before is a fantastic wedding photographer, did an entire photo spread on the event and you can see it here. […]
