backyard bbq

We had a backyard bbq couples shower for Mary & David at our house on Saturday. Adam and I hosted it with five other couples and I think the party was a huge success!!
We were in charge of preparing the pulled pork and grilled chicken. Adam set up shop Friday afternoon and smoked boston butts until midnight!! It was definitely quite the undertaking, but they turned out fabulous and everyone raved about the tasty pulled pork!
Smokin' away!

I also put together a few decorations with the color scheme from the invites

I picked these from our yard and loved the way this turned out!

I purchased burlap to make a table cloth and used the leftover along with some scrap fabric to make this bunting.

Grady made the tastiest boiled peanuts I've ever had!! They were a huge hit and definitely an awesome appetizer to serve.

Thank you card sketched by Mary...I love love love it!! Me in my wrap dress carrying a plate of freshly baked cupcakes and Adam wearing his CCLC shirt holding a fishing pole...does she know us or what??
She also gave the hosts beautiful tassels from Kathryn Glass Designs

we had fried pickles as another appetizer...sooo good!

the twelve hosts with the honorary couple!

cake shop cupcakes for dessert!

adam grilling the chicken wings...

the table with all of the food set out...macaroni & cheese (soooooo tasty and made by sidney...i need the recipe!) asian slaw, pulled pork, and grilled chicken wings. delish!

The hosts/hostesses gave Mary & David a Happy Everything plate!!
Mary was pretty pleased! ;)

Thanks to the Bruces, Campbells, Edenfields, Meadows, & Pattons for helping us throw such a fun party!!!!

And congrats again to the future Mr. & Mrs. David Mica, Jr!! :)
