Surprise! Wesley's 30

We had a surprise party for Wesley’s birthday on Saturday. Here are the highlights:

Some friends of ours live in a beautiful Charleston neighborhood with an open air oyster pavilion and wood burning fireplace so we did it there.

Invitations are key – they set the tone for your event and allow your guests to know what to expect! Here’s a copy of ours:


On the Menu: lowcountry boil, cole slaw, and  sweet potato biscuits.

3Spiked sweet tea is a perfect signature drink for any Southern affair.

1Coozies for all the guests.
