This weekend my hubby turns the big 4-0 and we are having a backyard get-together. I didn't want to do anything tacky and "over the hill"...I'll save that for ten more years...so I decided to still go with the expected black but use black and white or red and white gingham. I plan on lighting up the backyard with torches and string lights throughout our trees and blankets on the ground. We're having a picnic, so I ordered some carriers and lots of little cups and containers for my dad's Boston Butt , slaw, potato salad, rolls and Greek chips. I've collected wine bottles and spray painted them to use for a lawn bowling lane, complete with a little pumpkin as the bowling ball. We are looking forward to spending the evening with friends and family to celebrate!
