Mid-Century Modern Party

Housewarming Party!!!

12:07 PMDollie DeVille

This last weekend was our housewarming party. I wish that all of my blogger friends could have been there, but because I know that is entirely impossible, I decided to have a virtual housewarming party! I really wanted to take a video tour of the house to show you, but sadly, I never got around to it. I did try to take some pics for you though. I got a lot of the party patrons and such, but not a lot of the house. But, I can still post more house pics later, as it aint goin' anywhere! I think I will actually post those in a before and after post....maybe next week if I can get around to it. Anyway, back to the story. We had some grand ideas for our party, but the weather kind of ruined that. We had planned to have the party mostly in the backyard, BBQ style. Zack was going to wear his 50s novelty BBQ shirt and I was going to wear a poofy circle dress and apron like a cheesy 50s  couple, but because of the rain I had to settle for something warmer: my favorite vintage cardigan, blue bells, and remix shoes:

Little Sandra Sprague was our first guest of the afternoon

Guests hanging out and eating all the food I made:
Pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, coleslaw, pasta salad, baked beans and Santa Fe style salad. 

Bobby always looks so sharp!

Girls only!

The sweets table: mini funfetti cupcakes, chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, and candy bar. 

Amber made these delicious and beautiful Easter themed cake pops!

We got way too many presents. Our friends are too good to us!

Amber made me this planter out of succulents from her own yard.
I adore her.

Then, to cap off the night.....
I hired a Johnny Horton Stripper:

He Sang....He Danced....He took his pants off:

Bow chica wow wow!!! 

Really, that was just Chance. He really did all that stuff, and I didn't even have to pay him!

So, the party was a smashing success! 
The first guest showed up at about 2pm, and the last guest left at 1am. 
We were exhausted!
Thank you soooo much to all of our friends that made it out.
We are so lucky to have amazing friends like you.
