{ Planning a Tail Gate Party }

I love autumn.
Your skin still has a little tan from summer, you hair doesn't frizz, and there's still lot's of color in the trees.
The weather seems perfect. Not to hot. Not too chilly.
Just makes you want to have an outdoor party.
So, I searched the internet for inspiration.
And, I'm happy to share what I've found...as long as you invite me.

To keep the party stress-free have everyone contribute. These adorable invites say it all.

Keep things super simple by serving lot's of hand-held foods. This keeps the amount of paper plates and utensils to a minimum.
Try these yumm-ga-bumm sandwiches from Southern Living.

And keep the desserts bite sized.

You know I can't have a party without a little diy project... Simple, cute, and functional.

I love a mix and match set of chairs. The more the merrier.
And a burlap table cloth to keep with the rustic feel of Autumn.

Don't forget the bar.
If you're ambitious, create a signature drink for the day.
If you're not, no one will care. But make the bar a show stopper anyhow. 

If you're lucky enough to call this home, I definitely want an invite to the party.

Ans last, but not least. The fall wardrobe...my favorite season for clothing. 
I'm an Autumn. I look good in warm colors. So it's my season to let my fat butt shine. 
(unfortunately, this is not a picture of me. But let's pretend it is. "Hi, welcome to the tail gate party. I just threw this little outfit together.")

Don't forget a scarf. Instant outfit.

And HELLO. Cabela's isn't just for boys. These are on my list for Fall.

So, there you have it. Fun for all.
Go call your friends and start planning.
Before you know it you'll be stressing about Christmas... and be pasty white.

  3. There are humans who accept a agnosticism about the ability about these Rolex replica watches and these bodies should aboriginal advertise one of replica watches uk these timepieces on their wrist afore accession at any conclusion.He is envied for the Rolex replica watches he flaunts,be it the affair or a accumulated meeting,his Rolex replica watches never fails to allure the eyes of others who attending at him with envy.Accept you anytime apparent activity movies and accept you noticed the personality of hublot replica the capital character?

  4. Folks admit that those products are Replica Watches however they buy them. But I don't like to buy replica watches, if I want to buy, I would buy genuine ones, so my question is why so many people buy Rolex Replica?Many people like to buy replica because they are cheaper. Sometimes we should buy something base on our economic status. When our economic is ok, we can buy original watches, but when the Omega Replica situation is not so good, we should consider a replica. If people do not have enough money to buy the genuine one and they like the style very much, they will buy a Breitling Replica, cause what they like is not the brand but the style of the brand.
