I've collected these 60 some mason jars over the years.
I used a combination of tea lights, and some battery candles.
I love them displayed in mass.
Organizing all the serving pieces ahead of time!
Moved the jars to the kitchen island, which serves as the buffet,
added fresh greens from our yard.
Setting up a bar cart for serving drinks.

Sorry, no photos I was busy getting dishes out of the oven,
but I'll do a post about the do-ahead appetizers and my tips.
These clever girls!! Using the invitation as a bow,
decopaging a wine box with book pages, using the comics as wrapping paper
all in keeping with our 'word' theme.
What was in the beautifully wrapped packages?
I'm a lucky girl,
and so happy they feel guilty stealing from the hostess!
Did I mention I immediately hung it on the wall!
Oh, and my friend made it!
Here's to my wonderful girlfriends!
I saw this Pooped Party Girl
when I got up this morning, she slept all night with her pearls on!
(she got the fashion advice from this stylish friend)
Till next year...
