Low Country Boil

Our Low Country Boil was a great success! In case you didn't read my post on Friday, the Griffin-Spalding Historical Society had it's annual fundraiser this past Saturday. We had a great group of people, and our board members all worked really hard to set up & clean up on Sunday.
I have tons of pictures to post today. As I mentioned Friday, we went with a coastal theme. Used tons of burlap! {Thanks for the call Cathy~Kay had much more burlap than I knew}. I was also excited to use my new chalk board {above} for the check-in table. The large wooden dough bowl is from Mark Knight. We used it for the rolls & cornbread that was donated by Louise's Cafeteria.

There was an event at the Bailey-Tebault house on Friday night, so we were able to use a few tall tables. This is during set up, working on table decor.
Christine found this green mason jar in the old apothecary building.

A few weeks ago, Christine & I bought these cute little plants.

Beginning of set up on Saturday.

Christine and Kay had the Junior Guild girls wrap all the flatware in napkins and raffia.

Our economical table arrangements. The wine carafes are from Wal-Mart, and we wrapped them with twine.

We placed sponsorship cards on each table. Dender Distributing supplied the beer, Louise's bread, United Bank did the fantastic boil, & 6th Street Pier restuarant supplied the wonderful corn fritters!

Luckily, the rain held off until much later in the evening.

We set up some tables on the Owen Terrace.

I was so excited to see my invitation design blown up for a banner! Dender Dist. printed these great banners for us!

Christine found the cute lanterns for the cooking pit area.

Christine & me~pre-party. Hot from setting up!

Our favorite party guest, Magnolia. She had a great time! Thanks to all who came out to have fun!
