For drinks we served lemon water and bottled root beer. Even the ants came to the picnic!
A little bling to the fresh flower arrangements.
Our utensils were wrapped in red checked napkins then placed in a Kerr canning jar along with the straws. I then placed them in an old canning rack and added an old thermos full of flowers in the center. I even broke out my antique picnic basket for the occasion which I had to empty fabric before we could use it. Now, that doesn't surprise you does it?
There's that famous potatoe salad my mom always made and even in that same bowl. Kira was taught by mom how to make it and she has mastered it well. It was delish!
The drinks and cupcakes.
The gift table, with a picnic quilt to cover borrowed from the Corn Wagon.
How cute are these? Very yummy too!
Treat yourself to some candy on the way out. Buttermints, Sixlets and watermelon slices.
The White house girls. Kira, Myself, Angie and Kaitlyn.
Angie and her mom, Becky. She drove from American Falls, Idaho to join us. I'm so glad see could make it.
Becky has been very busy getting this gift ready for Angie. She gave her a scrapbook full of CD's and pictures with all her childhood activities. What a treasure. Hum, I wonder if I could hire her to do Jacob's now!
Grandma and Karas.
On each invitation we assigned the different first that Angie and Jacob will have together. How fitting that I got first picnic. I think that one was probably rigged! So for my gift I put together things they can use on a first picnic. She had to unload everything before she got to the good stuff in the bottom. What else, a quilt! (Opps, just deleted the picture and I can't get it to load back in the order. I'll show you that in a seperate picture I guess. Uhh, that makes me mad!) This is my sister Tamara and her daughter Karissa.
Angie and Karas opening gifts. Karas was a big help that day.
