Party Talk!!!

Today I thought I would share with you some of the things we have been able to pick up for our Diner party later on this month. I am amazed at what is actually available and so glad that we have been able to pull the theme together.
Plates, napkins and cupcake picks.
Fries containers and sauce bottles.
Drink cups with straws.
Burger and hotdog trays.
There will also be stars and stripes bunting one lot of which I made last year and another that I am going to make using the roll of Fablon I got.

The menu will be........

Homemade burgers
Hotdogs (made with proper sausages)
Fried onions
There will also be lettuce, tomato and sliced red onion (my preference) and Monterey Jack cheese slices.
Rather than fries I am doing the American potato bites with chilli cheese sauce and smoky barbecue sauce and there will also be a bowl of corn on the cob.
For desserts we will have apple pie with cream, blueberry muffins with a cream cheese topping, lemon meringue cupcakes or S'Mores.

Hopefully the weather will be nice and we will be outside enjoying ourselves to 1950's/1960's music. I can't wait.

Hubby has just gone off to the hospital in Derby for his pre-op appointment. We're both pretty calm about that but I am not looking forward to Monday when he goes for his biopsy or the subsequent wait for the results and what they might turn out to be.

Well I'll go and do a bit of tidying....although after my mega domestic goddess gig yesterday there is really nothing needs doing. Just a couple of mugs to wash and the worktops to wipe over and then I think I will watch a couple more episodes of Homes Under The Hammer on You Tube.

Hope you are having a lovely day.


  1. well if you fancy doing a bit of cleaning, you could maybe pop round ?

  2. Oh it all sounds lovely Sheila, although for some reason I can't see any of the photos which is a shame. Sorry to hear hubby is having to have a biopsy. Fingers crossed for positive results. Waiting for news like that is really hard, I hope they manage to get the results back to him soon. xx


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
