A couple of weeks ago I hosted my first Pinterest Party. I invited ladies from my MOMS Club for an evening of eating, crafting, and chatting.
Everyone prepared and brought a dish from Pinterest. For dinner, we had delicious Reuben Dip, Watermelon Salad, Tomato Basil Cheddar Soup, Chicken Pot Pie Bundles, and, after much deliberation, I prepared Baked Cheese Tortellini with Spinach (I’ll share the recipe soon.). We were all so eager to dig in that I forgot to take a photos of the food. I did manage to get a shot of some of our dessert choices.
We had Caramel Pretzel Crunch Brownies, Deep Dark Chewy Chocolate Cookies, and Tiramisu Cupcakes! Everything was so, so good!
After eating we worked on making yarn wreaths. They turned out to be the perfect project because, as you know if you’ve ever made one, they’re not hard to make, but they take some time. All that time wrapping (and wrapping and wrapping and wrapping) yarn around wreath forms gave us lots of time to visit and laugh. By the end of the night everyone had a beautiful finished wreath to take home. Here are just a few I remembered to get pictures of. (I was in party mode-not picture mode.)
I love this brown speckled fall yarn!
I love the combination of berries and feathers on this white wreath.
Ah, burlap and and bunting-two of my favorite things!
And this is my gray snowflake wreath. The yarn reminds me of a warm winter sweater. The snowflakes are Christmas ornaments I bought at Hobby Lobby. It still needs a ribbon hanger, but it’s going to be my January “Wreath of the Month” so I have some time.
Of course, I couldn’t host a party without favors, especially a Pinterest Party! I saw a picture of repurposed pull-top cans filled with goodies a long time ago and I’ve been saving cans ever since, and because Andy was just about ready to throw them away I figured this was the perfect time to use them.
I covered them with scrapbook paper and filled them with some tasty treats for the road. (I’ll post a photo how-to and the recipe soon!)
We had a great night! It was the latest I’ve stayed up in a loooong time, but I can’t wait to do it again.
