on saturday, we celebrated my farmer's birthday with a backyard barbecue!
we grilled brats & paired them with homemade sauerkraut. we cut up vegetables from the garden, made a caprese salad & shared kettle chips with guests. our guests brought along side dishes & we filled up a wheelbarrow with beer. it was such a good night!
this little get-together cost us next to nothing, but it was so much fun! i pulled together rusty, chippy bits from around our home & paired it with goodies from my party closet - paper goods & party decorations i keep for home celebrations.
we had a dessert table & drink bar on our back patio. i purchased a chocolate cake from the local bakery & put together s'more ingredients for the fire pit in our backyard.
i found this old campfire marshmallow tin at a yard sale this past summer & we have already put it to great use. it's one of my favorite vintage finds.
i got the hog cups from shindig paperie & decorated the tabletops with zinnias from our flower garden.
it was such a simple party filled with good food & great company in celebration of the best guy!
