It was a fun Fall day when my friend Jeannie and I put our heads together and planned an easy finger-food party for Abby and a few of her friends.
Our goal: simple and ... are you ready for this? We wanted no forks, and we wanted to use paper towels!
With no plans, other than what food we'd serve, when I arrived at Jeannie's, we went through her tablecloth selection.
Deciding on this pattern.
And then we got creative with the paper napkins.
And set a pretty table, with beautiful fall mums.
As the girls dug in - and devoured it all, of course we had to keep ripping off paper towels to wipe those messy hands!
And then these delicious treats (made by Abby!)
Where paper towels definitely were handy, with juicy strawberries.
It was funny, we talked a lot about food, and how we loved the little pizzas and sausage rolls, and the popcorn chicken (my daughter's request), and we had dipping sauces, too.
I just love how the simple things in life, like sitting around a table with friends and eating finger foods, brings comfort to all.
When our tummies are full, life just feels right.
Especially when good friends are around!
Would you share a recent experience where it just felt "right" in the midst of food and great friends?
