We recently entertained the Clogger's group down by our pool, under the palapa.
Our group usually meets once a month for lunch at a local restaurant. I thought it would be fun to host the luncheon at our home, poolside. We have had many parties here for the Clogger's, but it is usually in the dining room.
My handy husband built the 12 foot long table. It is a temporary table to accommodate 12-13 people. I wanted the whole group to sit together. After entertaining, he will take it apart and build me a potting bench. I chose a teal tablecloth, because the dishes have teal, red, green and white. It looks pretty blue here.
The dishes I bought last year from QVC. They are Laurie Gates Embossed melamine.
You can find them on Ebay or Amazon.
My husband was the bartender and my assistant. Here is a site for some yummy tropical cocktails.
I felt like I needed to have the day over, so I could get shots of everything. We missed taking a group shot, except for the one of us sitting at the table.
I bought two inflatable salad bars for the cold food. They were only under $10.00 each.
I bought them on Ebay with free shipping. They sell them everywhere and even come in colors and patterns. They even have a drain. Great for outdoor parties.
Everyone going through the line. It was potluck style with my husband and I providing cocktails, pulled pork and desserts.
The desserts were the Nutter Nutter flip flops, mini upside down pineapple cakes and Hawaiian Dream Dessert. My inspiration for the mini upside down pineapple cakes came from Big Mama's Home Kitchen.
I forgot to take a picture of the Hawaiian dream Dessert, but you can visit the Noble Pig and get the recipe. The ladies said these are so delicious. Easy and no baking......
My next post will be the tote bags I customized for each lady. Have a fabulous week ahead.
It is getting hot. I have already swam in our pool several times.
You can visit my Poolside Dining link to see the party from last year.
