Our MAPS (Mothers and Preschoolers) "mom", Barbara Jean, hosted a "garden party" for our small group last week, and it was fantastic! Our only responsibility was to wear a hat. The weather was cooler than expected, so the party was moved inside. She had a beautifully decorated table ready for us, and the house was decorated with pots of gerber daisies everywhere!
For dinner we had a delicious "ribbon sandwich" along with a mixed green salad with strawberries and candied pecans. I'd never had a ribbon sandwich before! It was a loaf of bread sliced lengthwise into several slices, and between each slice was a different type of sandwich spread: pimiento cheese, tuna salad, crab salad, chicken salad. Then it was frosted with cream cheese, and when sliced (like a loaf cake), it was a gorgeous layered sandwich! These are roses from her garden decorating it.
For dessert we had individual meringue shells topped with whipped strawberry fluff and hot fudge. Sorry, no picture of that...I must have been too busy eating and gabbing. :-) After dinner we had hot tea in pretty tea cups in the living room. Such a girly evening and SO much fun!!
Here's a picture of our group!
As we were leaving, Barbara Jean gave us each a pot of the gerber daisies to take home. Daisies are my favorite flower. :-) Here's a picture of mine! Pink to match my outfit!
