We kicked off spring this weekend with a backyard soiree! We spent a few weekends cleaning up the porch, cabana and yard prior to Easter so we were ready to open it all up to friends, neighbors and family.
We set the food up on the porch, using the buffet table for plates, napkins and cutlery.
The menu was simple and some of our most favorite bites. Honey grilled pork tenderloins on the Big Green Egg prior to the party start. I made Asian Noodle Salad, Beck’s Crackers and Jalapeno Cheddar Crackers. We put out a big bowl of our favorite VooDoo chips. I ordered petit fours and thumbprint cookies from my favorite Atlanta bakery, McEntyre’s, and carried home Key Lime Coolers from Byrd’s in Savannah.

The bar was outside in the courtyard on two folding tables. I also passed my favorite Empress 75 cocktail, which was a huge hit again this year.
There’s not much I love more than a home full of music, friends, laughter, food and drinks. Having these spaces filled with that feels so good.
This is an adult event and while we don’t have swimmers, it makes for a lovely backdrop. It was quite literally the most perfect spring evening.
While the doors to the house were open, I don’t think anyone left the backyard other than to use the restroom. The highlight of the night was Mark Miller, who makes the rounds in our circle and is an incredible human and Americana / country musician.
In the last few minutes before the party started, little miss CeeCee took to the microphone and sang two songs that she wrote. <3
We took down the ping pong net and used the courtyard table for seating. Bestie M and I also rigged up a cute little photo backdrop. Find those details here:
We partied late into the night and, I believe, a good time was had by all!
The family book-ends each made an appearance :-)
Happy Spring, y’all!
