Welcoming the guests at Pine Hollow Lodge was a cheery sign and a brightly-painted red door.
And matching red rockers...
So cheery and bright.
Inside was also sweet...
Flowers brought from the garden of one of Autumn's friends, arranged in McCoy vases.
Delicious cupcakes...just waiting to be eaten.
Mary made pennants to hang for her granddaughter's shower...and cute they were!
They were found in many places, each cuter than the last one.
The punch table was even part of the pretty decorations, as its cheery tin top is red gingham!
Our cool and refreshing punch is easy to do and won't be forgotten by your guests if you serve it: One two-liter of 7-Up to one frozen can of white grape juice concentrate and ice to fill the punch bowl. Not too sweet and almost clear in color--it was dressed up with juicy red strawberry slices.
The cheery old red soda cooler was put to use with chilled sodas for the guests.
The menu was cool summer foods: giant sub sandwiches and many kinds of delicious cold salads; fruit kabob, and fresh vegetables--shared with us by Autumn's friend, Keisha....
