Even though it’s quite a bit after the fact we’re having an anniversary party next week. Here are a few ideas I’m throwing around for decorating and eating and such. I think I’m going to go with a yellow and gray theme with some of the stuff intended for long term patio/backyard use. I ahem haven’t actually started making anything or settled on a menu yeah I know only a week a way I probably should have more things decided upon, I guess that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend. If you have any ideas I’d love to hear them.

I love the idea of having a lemonade bar. How fun and cute would that be. I’m thinking berries, mint and watermellon puree.

Also I’ve been trying to convince the musicmaker into getting a fire pit so that we can roast hot dogs and marshmallows to make ‘smores. We’ve got some vegan friends so I’m excited to try out this vegan smore recipe (if I have time to find/make vegan marshmallows) in addition to good old traditional smores.

I’ve got the wrappers and I’m going to experiment with these this weekend. I’m thinking traditional (shrimp, pork, rice noodles, lettuce, carrots, cilantro) and vegetarian (asparagus, tofu, carrots, lettuce, rice noodles, cilantro) and of course my peanut sauce. Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for stuffing.

Also if I have time I want to put together a lovey dovey play list. I’ll need 4-5 hours of songs and I’m running out of ideas if you can think of any love songs -super obvious, old, new, super unusual, whatever- I’d love you to leave a comment because I need a lot more songs. Thanks in advance! A
