No Soup for You!

This past Saturday night, Mary and I hosted a fall party at our house. The weather was absolutely perfect and the company was even better. We served two soups.....Sausage Corn Chowder and Chicken Tortilla Soup with all the fixin's. It was such a cute concept and I think everyone had a great time. I had lots of fun and I'm going to make sure that every party I throw from now on is hosted with someone else. It makes for a much more enjoyable party experience!

How many people does it take to start a fire in the fire pit?



And I'm going to have to add that my poor husband didn't eat any soup at this soup party. He wanted to wait until everyone else served their bowls and by the time he came in to get some soup, it was all gone! Poor Adam.
I am making Chicken Tortilla Soup tomorrow night for dinner to make up for it though! :)

I love all the parties that you host! I love being a hostess but we never have any reason to have a party (let alone a house for people to come to). Looks like you had fun!

By the way, your pictures are looking amazing! You're getting very good.
