    Oh My Goodness! I would have love to have been a fly on the wall (no outdoor-eating pun intended)! That looks fabulous! In what part of the country do you reside? I love the last picture on the water! Gorgeous setting.

    That is an awesome party in picture form. I love all your decor and the way you set it up using the window ledge for added table space is ingenious. Thanks for sharing.

    I just realized I posted to the wrong place on the headband, but not to the wrong place about that place setting. I was also looking around at your R.S. Halloween party and WOW, I want R.S. parties like that. It looks FABULOUS!
