Happy 4th of July!

Come on over...

Wreath either awesome or gaudy...

Flags and more flags...

George helped...


Fried Chicken
Potato Salad
Texas Caviar Salad
Mixed Berry Salad
Fresh Veg Tray
Sliced White Bread
Coke & Dr Pepper

The menu had a southern flare.  Frying 80 pieces of chicken is not difficult - just time consuming - about 4 hours.  My not so secret recipe - egg, flour and season salt.  

Dessert Table

Lola's Cupcakes had perfect 4th of July boxes in red velvet and vanilla big and minis.  Ice cream in red wrappers.  3 kilos of red, white and blue jelly beans to eat and take home in stripey bags.  The three empty bowls were full  (and refilled) of jelly beans - George's dinner was jelly beans. 

George's birthday party was incorporated into the party...

The 4th it was work and school as usual.  But I am happy we could celebrate with our American friends in London!

You do know how to throw a great party -- the food looks divine! Is it a sin that I've never made fried chicken?
